President Obama’s Message to Bernie Sanders: ‘Everybody Knows’ Delegate Math

The president pointed to Bernie Sanders' impossible delegate math.

Asked whether he believes the Vermont senator should end his campaign given the current delegate count, he replied, “I think on the Democratic side, just let the process play itself out. You mentioned the delegate math. I think everybody knows what that math is.”

Nevertheless, Obama commended Sanders for “an extraordinary job raising a whole range of issues” that are important to Democratic voters.

“I know that at some point there is going to be a conversation between Secretary Clinton and Bernie Sanders about how we move towards the convention,” Obama predicted.

“You know, I've been through this. It's natural,” he continued. “Sometimes, even more with the staffs and supporters than with the candidates themselves.”
