*-- Clinton, Sanders meet for two hours in joint effort to defeat Trump --*
WASHINGTON - After Hillary Clinton defeated Bernie Sanders in the Washington, D.C., Democratic presidential primary on Tuesday, the once-warring pair met to discuss working together to defeat Donald Trump.
Clinton further solidified her claim as the presumptive Democratic nominee after winning the last contest in the primary and caucus circuit. Sanders and Clinton met for nearly two hours after her win.
After the meeting, both camps said the exchange was "positive" and declared their joint effort to defeat Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.
"The two discussed a variety of progressive issues where they share common goals like raising wages for working families, eliminating undisclosed money in politics and reducing the cost of college for students and their families," a Clinton campaign official said, echoing the same policy items listed in a statement provided by Sanders.
Sanders did not say when or if he will drop out of the presidential race. The Vermont senator will hold a live event Thursday night where he will discuss the future of his campaign.
"When we started this campaign, I told you that I was running not to oppose any man or woman, but to propose new and far-reaching policies to deal with the crises of our time," Sanders said in an email to supporters on Tuesday. "And for the past fourteen months, through the entire primary process, we've sent the establishment a message they can't ignore: We won't settle for the status quo."
