Vice President Joe Biden said he doesn’t believe there’s a “fundamental split in the Democratic Party,” NBC News reports.
Biden said he believes Sanders will back Clinton in the same way Clinton called for party unity when she lost the Democratic primary in 2008.
"I'm confident that Bernie will be supportive if Hillary wins, which the numbers indicate will happen. So I'm not worried," he said. "There's no fundamental split in the Democratic Party."
Biden also dismissed concerns that Sanders’ attitude has pushed his supporters to become more disruptive. The vice president did urge the Vermont senator to address outbursts like the one that took place over the weekend at the Nevada Democratic convention.
