Donald Trump slammed Bernie Sanders' endorsement of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire on Tuesday, saying that the Vermont senator "has totally sold out" and that he "was not true to himself and his supporters."
Here is the presumptive Republican nominee's Twitter rant:
Declaring that unity among Democrats was necessary to defeat Trump, Sanders gave his long-awaited endorsement to Clinton at a rally in Portsmouth, N.H.
"This campaign is not really about Hillary Clinton, or Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders, or any other candidate who sought the presidency," he said. "This campaign is about the needs of the American people and addressing the very serious crises that we face.
"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."
The Trump campaign also ripped the endorsement on its web site, with senior policy adviser Stephen Miller saying in a statement that Sanders endorsed "one of the most pro-war, pro-Wall Street, and pro-off-shoring candidates in the history of the Democratic Party.
"The candidate who wants less war is endorsing the candidate who launched wars in Iraq and Libya and would lead us to a new war in Syria," Miller said. "The candidate who wants to get money out of politics is voting for the candidate who has made a career out of making money from politics.
"Bernie's endorsement becomes Exhibit A in our rigged system," he added. "The Democrat Party is disenfranchising its voters to benefit the select and privileged few."
