Former US vice president Joe Biden took to Twitter on Thursday urging Democrats to unite, following Senator Bernie Sanders' dropping out of the presidential race.

"If we come together, we will defeat [US President] Donald Trump," Biden tweeted. "And when we do that, we will not only do the hard work of rebuilding this nation -- we will transform it."

After the Vermont senator announced his drop out, Biden immediately hailed him as "a good man, a great leader, and one of the most powerful voices for change in our country."

Biden urged Sanders supporters to join his campaign, which already has the backing of nearly all other ex-rivals in the race including senators Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar, and former Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg.

"I see you, I hear you, and I understand the urgency of what it is we have to get done in this country," Biden said in a statement to Sanders and his supporters. "I hope you will join us. You are more than welcome. You're needed."

Trump made his own pitch for Sanders's supporters, though in a more abrasive tone.

"Bernie Sanders is OUT!" Trump posted on Twitter. "The Bernie people should come to the Republican Party, TRADE!" Trump said.
