One-on-one with Hillary Clinton: Uniting the Democratic party, unfavorable ratings and Trump

- FOX 11's Steve Edwards had a one-on-one phone interview with Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton about a week before the June 7 California primary.

Clinton said she respects Senator Bernie Sanders decision to remain in the race, but hopes they can get together after June 7 and talk about how they're going to unify and defeat presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

"The most important thing for us now is to unite the Democratic party because Donald Trump poses a series of serious threats to our country. And he’s {Trump's} unqualified to be President and we need to be united in order to make sure that doesn’t happen,” Clinton said.

Clinton also answered a question regarding her and Trump's unfavorable ratings. A CBS News/New York Times poll shows Clinton with a 52% unfavorable rating and Trump with 57%. The former Secretary of State was asked what is it that drives this negativity.

She answered in part, "when I am actually doing a job I get really high marks from people I am serving. So, I am going to work hard to talk about what I have done, what I have accomplished, what I want to do as President, and just work as hard as I can to try to earn people’s votes in the next month.”

Clinton currently has 2,312 delegates to Sanders' 1,545.
