Bernie Sanders is suspending his 2020 presidential campaign, ceding the Democratic nomination to Joe Biden after a string of losses last month crippled his campaign.

He announced his decision during an all-staff conference call Wednesday morning. The Vermont senator told his aides that this was not just a presidential campaign, but a movement, and to be proud of what they’ve accomplished.

During a livestream announcing that he is dropping out, Sanders finally acknowledged that “the path toward victory is virtually impossible.”

Sanders said the progressive movement has taken “a major step forward in the never-ending struggle for economic justice, social justice, racial justice and environmental justice.”

And he argued that it has already won the ideological struggle. “A majority of the American people now understand that we must raise the minimum wage to at least $15 an hour hour, that we must guarantee health care as a right … it was not long ago that people considered these ideas radical.”

“The greatest obstacle to real social change has everything to do with the power of the corporate and political establishment to limit our vision,” he said.

Trump commented on Twitter:

He encouraged Bernie supporters to back him in 2020:

Some of them undoubtedly will.
