Bernie makes rare TV appearance in support of Biden and Kamala as he is says his job is to help defeat Trump and 'mobilize people for a progressive agenda' ahead of his speech at Democratic convention

Bernie Sanders exhibited the progressive wing's support for presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden during a flurry of media appearances on Sunday morning where he voiced his top priority is beating Donald Trump.
'My message to our supporters is we have got to do everything that we can to defeat Donald Trump, who I view as the most dangerous president in American history,' he told CNN's Take Tapper on 'State of the Union.'
'We're going to do all that we can to mobilize people for a progressive agenda,' the Vermont senator continued in his Sunday morning appearance.

'This is not a complicated issue,' the 78-year-old Democratic socialist said of backing the 77-year-old former vice president. 'Donald Trump must be defeated, Biden must be elected.'
'And after that election, we're going to do all that we can to fight for a progressive agenda,' he reiterated.
'What we have to do the day after we elect Joe Biden as president we got to rally our people to stand up and fight for an America that works for all and not just the few,' he added. 'And that absolutely includes Medicare for All.'
Sanders is also slated to speak on the kick-off night of the first ever virtual Democratic National Convention on Monday.

The former 2016 and 2020 Democratic presidential candidate will make a speech at the all-virtual event just ahead of headliner speaker and former first lady Michelle Obama.
Also representing the progressive wing of the party at the convention this year will be New York City Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has a 60-second speaking slot on the second night of events.
On Tuesday, Ocasio-Cortez will also share the virtual stage with Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, and former President Bill Clinton.
AOC was an organizer from Sanders' campaign in the 2016 presidential race before launching her own political ambitions.
As well as speaking to CNN, Sanders – who has gone on quite a media hiatus since suspending his campaign in April and endorsing Biden – also did interviews with NBC News' 'Meet the Press' and ABC News' 'This Week' on Sunday morning to express his support for Biden.
The extra push of momentum from the progressive wing of the Democratic Party comes after Biden announced last week that California Senator Kamala Harris would be joining him on his presidential ticket.
'If Wall Street breathes a sigh of relief with Kamala Harris being named to the ticket, what does Bernie Sanders do?' Tapper asked Sanders. 
'What Bernie Sanders is going to do is do everything that I can to defeat Donald Trump, to elect Joe Biden,' he responded.
This selection marks history as Harris will become the first black woman to ever appear on a major party’s presidential ballot. 
Harris has also quelled concerns of some far-left factions of the party who were concerned with Biden's middle-of-the-line stance on many policies.
Trump has bashed Harris, the former attorney general of California, for her liberal record and claims she is 'nasty' and 'mean' and a 'mad woman.'
During an interview with former Fox News commentator Eric Bolling that aired on his show with Sinclair Sunday morning, Trump said she is more liberal than Sanders.

'She is super liberal,' Trump insisted. 'I have actually heard that she is the most liberal person in Congress. More liberal than Bernie Sanders.'
'Kamala's a socialist,' he continued, claiming she had 'brought over' Biden to the far-left and would be 'running it.'
'She's a disaster,' he asserted.
Both Sanders and Harris were once rivals of Biden in the Democratic primary. 
Harris has the most liberal voting record over the last year of any senator currently serving in Congress, according to GovTrack, a government watchdog.
She is a proponent for late-term abortion, has advocated for criminalize climate-change denial and the manufacturing of guns and wants taxpayer-funded health care to apply to illegal immigrants.
She has also suggested that being Catholic should disqualify judges from serving on the higher courts.
In 2018 she said a Trump nominee and member of the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic organization, might not 'fairly and impartially' judge cases because of the organization's allegiance to the church.
