Bernie Sanders plans Tuesday meeting with Hillary Clinton to discuss agenda – Chicago Tribune

Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday he plans to meet Tuesday night with Hillary Clinton about her agenda as the Democratic presidential nominee and will make other decisions about the future of his campaign after that.

“I simply want to get a sense of what kind of platform she will be supporting, whether she will be vigorous in standing up for working families and the middle class, moving aggressively in climate change, health care for all, making public colleges and universities tuition-free,” Sanders, I-Vt., said during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And after we have that kind of discussion, and after we can determine whether or not we are going to have a strong and progressive platform, I will be able to make other decisions.”

Sanders told host Chuck Todd that he will have more than 1,900 delegates at the convention and that he needs to determine “what kind of agenda there will be if Secretary Clinton gets elected, if she wins the election.”

During a separate TV appearance Sunday, Sanders said he thinks it is “very unlikely” that Clinton would pick him as her vice-presidential running mate.
