Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton "should cease all operations, all contact" with the Clinton Foundation if she wins the presidency, Sen. Bernie Sanders told NBC's "Meet The Press"on Sunday.

When pressed if that means the foundation should be closed due to the allegations that special access was given to its major donors when she was secretary of state, Sanders said he did not think that would be necessary, as the organization does do good and needed work.

However, he did insist that "at the very least [Hillary Clinton] should not be involved" any longer with the foundation.

Sanders, who is set to start campaigning for Clinton on Monday in New Hampshire, said the campaign should instead be focusing on the real issues impacting the lives of regular citizens.

When asked about polls which show that almost one-third of his young supporters are planning to vote for third-party candidates Gary Johnson or Jill Stein, Sanders said people need to realize that either Clinton or Republican nominee Donald Trump will become president, and that Clinton is far and away the better candidate in all the issues that are important to young voters.

He also stressed it is not only the struggle for the presidency that is important, but that down-ballot candidates as well play a vital role in creating a movement that forces the government to respond to the needs of ordinary people and not only the well-connected.

"The political revolution is about transforming America, is getting millions of people involved in the political process," Sanders said. "That's not going to happen overnight … but I think it is happening."

Sanders added that he thought the 15 percent threshold needed for a candidate to participate in the presidential debates was probably too high and should be lower so that other voices are also heard on the national stage.
