2016 Presidential ElectionEdit
Bernie officially joined the race for the 2016 presidency, as a member of the Democratic Party. While he was behind Hillary in most polls, he did beat her in 22 states. Sanders criticised Hillary Clinton for her 9/11 comments at a November 2015 debate. some Economists were advising People to buy environmentally friendly local stocks if Sanders became President of the United States. On March 23 2016 The awesome TV network called The Young Turks interviewed Sanders.
Quote from Bernie SandersEdit
As Vermont’s senator, as one of the most progressive members of Congress and as the longest serving Independent in American history, I am helping to lead the fight against the Big Money interests in Washington. At the same time, working with activists in Vermont and across the country, we are hard at work building a strong grass-roots movement which is attempting to change our national priorities. As someone who does not accept corporate PAC money, I very much appreciate the help that tens of thousands of Americans have given my campaign. 
General election support Edit
Sanders has now dropped out of the Democratic Party, but he supported Hillary Clinton in the General Election because he realized a Trump presidency would be a bit more of a disaster for the United States of America and the World, than a Clinton presidency.
Another reason he decided to support Hillary instead of Jill Stein, is that he knows a that a 3rd party won't win, so he did an extremely grudgeful, KMN (Kill Me Now) endorsement of Hillary.
Keep in mind though, Sanders supporters, he DID say that Hillary should do something to EARN your vote.
