After suspending his campaign for president, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said he will work hard to make sure that Joe Biden becomes president, but added, \u201cHe\u2019s going to have to listen to and respond to the needs of a whole lot of people who have not been overly enthusiastic about his campaign up to now.\u201d\nSanders said the former vice president will have to do a better job reaching out to young and low-income voters to defeat President Donald Trump.\nDespite suspending his campaign on Wednesday, Sanders\u2019 name will remain on the ballot in the coming primaries and he will likely continue to amass delegates. \u201cWe would like to get as many delegates as we can so that we have a stronger position at the Democratic convention to help us shape the new platform of the Democratic Party and other issues that the DNC deals with,\u201d Sanders said in an interview with PBS NewsHour anchor and managing editor Judy Woodruff on Friday.\nLooking back at the successes of his campaign, Sanders said he believes he has won the ideological battle. \u201cIdeas that I fought for four or five years ago, which everybody considered to be radical and extreme, are now part of the mainstream discussion,\u201d Sanders said. He also said his ideas represent the future of the country because they are popular with young people. \u201cWe did very poorly, and I don’t know why, to tell you the truth, with older people,\u201d Sanders said. \u201cBut we have done phenomenally well with younger people.\u201d\nSince announcing he was ending his race, Sanders said he has been on the phone with progressives across the country to talk about where the movement he built will go from here. \u201cWe are a strong movement and history will determine what happens in the future,\u201d he said.\nMore highlights from the interview:\n\nOn Biden\u2019s pick for his running mate: Sanders declined to say how he thinks his supporters would respond to Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., or Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., as running mates for Biden, but he did say, \u201cI think the more progressive the vice presidential candidate that he nominated, the better it would be in terms of the kind of response that our supporters would provide him.\u201d\nOn his proposal to expand Medicare during coronavirus: Sanders announced a new proposal Friday to guarantee health care to all Americans during the coronavirus pandemic. He said this legislation is aimed at the uninsured, including the millions of workers who have lost their jobs, and subsequently their health care. \u201cIt\u2019s my view that in the midst of this terrible, terrible crisis, when people have so much to worry about, the least we can do is to say to all of those people, \u2018You know what, you go to the doctor when you\u2019re sick,\u2019\u201d Sanders said. The coverage would be in effect until a COVID-19 vaccination is widely available to the public, he said. The proposal would cost an estimated $150 billion over four months, according to Sanders. \u201cI think that will take a huge burden off the shoulders of so many of our people,\u201d he said. \u201cAnd that is the very least that we should be doing right now.\u201d\nOn voting during the pandemic: Sanders said one of his highest priorities is making sure that every American is able to vote safely in the November elections. He said the Wisconsin election on Tuesday — which was not delayed despite efforts by the Democratic governor to hold off until the summer — was among the ugliest things he has seen in politics, and put the blame on Wisconsin Republicans. \u201cWhat they essentially said to people is, \u2018You’re going to have to put your life on the line in order to cast a ballot,\u2019\u201d Sanders said. \u201cAnd that is just unbelievably disgraceful.\u201d Sanders said voting rights will be a priority for him in upcoming legislation.
