    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said at a campaign rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan that if elected to be the next US president, she would work closely with US Senator Bernie Sanders on policies they outlined during the 2016 campaign.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Sanders competed unsuccessfully with Clinton for the 2016 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in the primary election. However, emails provided by WikiLeaks and other sources and materials have suggested that top Democratic officials colluded with Clinton to ensure she wins the nomination.

    Despite this development, Sanders still agreed to endorse Clinton for US president, but lost many supporters who went on to join the Green Party nominee Jill Stein or even Republican nominee Donald Trump.

    During Monday’s rally in Grand Rapids, Clinton explained that after the primary election the two contestants did not separate, but rather united in the pursuit of their common goals.

    "I can't wait to roll up my sleeves with Debbie [Wasserman-Schultz] and Bernie [Sanders], and we are going to get to work right after this election, if I am fortunate enough to win," Clinton told her supporters on Monday.

    In June, Sanders stated in an interview for CNN that he would make a strong effort to have his policies adopted in a potential Clinton administration.
