Hillary Clinton said Sunday on CNN's "GPS" that she will not endorse a candidate for president, but that she does not believe Bernie Sanders is "our strongest nominee against Donald Trump."

Why it matters: Clinton would not say whether she would campaign for Sanders if he wins the nomination, saying, "I don't know if he would ask me to campaign for him, because I have no idea what he is thinking about for a general election campaign." However, she stipulated that she would "support" whoever wins the nomination.

Watch:

What she's saying:

"As I've said many times, I do not think he's our strongest nominee against Donald Trump."
"I think what [Joe Biden's] victories on Super Tuesday showed is that he is building the kind of coalition that I have, basically. It's a broad-based coalition. ... I think Joe is on track to ... putting together a coalition of voters who are energized."
"Clearly, the Trump campaign, and Trump himself, know who they don't want to run against and know who they do want to run against."
— Hillary Clinton

The big picture: Clinton said she hopes Sanders is more "cooperative" in unifying the Democratic Party in this primary than he was in 2016. She said she thinks "his failure and the behavior of a lot of his top aides and certainly many of his supporters" were "not helpful."

  • "I can only hope that they understand we all have to have a singular goal of defeating Donald Trump," she said.

Big Tech's Hong Kong bind

Big Tech companies are scrambling to figure out what China's imposition of a new national security law in Hong Kong means for their businesses there.

The big picture: Tech companies, like other multinationals, had long seen bases in Hong Kong as a way to operate close to China without being subject to many of that country's most stringent laws. Now they likely must choose between accepting onerous data-sharing and censorship requirements, or leaving Hong Kong.

Two new court actions — one by the Supreme Court and another by a federal judge — together highlight and raise the energy stakes of November's election.

Why it matters: The legal actions mean the results of the 2020 election could very well decide the fate of Keystone XL and Dakota Access, two projects at the heart of battles over fossil fuel infrastructure.
