Bernie Sanders Just Endorsed Hillary Clinton for President, and So Did Donald Trump. In 2008.
Bernie Sanders officially announced his endorsement of Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.
"This campaign is not really about Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders. This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face," Sanders said while standing alongside Clinton at a rally in Portsmouth, N.H. "And there is no doubt in my mind that as we head into November, Hillary Clinton is far and away the best candidate to do that."
But Sanders isn't the only presidential candidate to endorse the former secretary of state.
"At least one member of [Mr. Obama's] team said Clinton would make a good vice president. Well, I know her, and she'd make a good president or a good vice president," Donald Trump said during the 2008 Democratic primary race.
Trump made those comments on "Trumped!" his daily 60-second commentary show that was aired on radio stations across the U.S between 2004 and 2008.
He even went on to say that many believe an Obama and Clinton pairing for president or vice president would be a "dream ticket."
While Sanders has endorsed Clinton for president, he many not formally suspend his campaign due to the procedure for the Democratic National Convention. But it is clear Clinton now has a powerful stronghold in the Democratic Party.
As for Trump's 2008 endorsement, it wasn't the only time the presidential contender delivered a kind word about Clinton.
In his 1997 book, "The Art of the Comeback," he called her, "a wonderful woman who has handled pressure incredibly well."
