The organization “Democratic Socialists of America” announced today despite Bernie Sanders endorsing Joe Biden, they will not be.
According to their website “The Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is the largest socialist organization in the United States. We believe that working people should run both the economy and society democratically to meet human needs, not to make profits for a few.
We are a political and activist organization, not a party; through campus and community-based chapters, DSA members use a variety of tactics, from legislative to direct action, to fight for reforms that empower working people.”
We are not endorsing @JoeBiden.

The organization’s refusal to endorse the presumptive nominee of the Democratic party prompted a large backlash from Democrats hoping Biden can defeat Trump.
You get that you’re effectively endorsing Trump, right?

Literally don't understand: you are endorsing Trump for reelection?
