Bernie Sanders Plans to Meet With Hillary Clinton Next Week

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos talks one on one with the Vermont Senator.

“What I need to see is a commitment that there will be progressive taxation, that Wall Street and the large corporations who are making billions of dollars a year and billionaires start paying their fair share of taxes so we can address the crises facing inner cities and the fact that we have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major country on Earth,” Sanders said.

Last week, Sanders met with President Barack Obama just hours before Obama endorsed Clinton. On “This Week,”’ Sanders said he hoped to continue to work with party leaders to transform the Democratic Party into a more “grassroots” party and said he was most proud of his small dollar fundraising machine and success with small voters.

Sanders said it was unlikely that he would be Clinton’s vice presidential pick at this point, but said he hoped to see the former Secretary of State choose a running mate ready to represent the progressive wing of the party.
