She suggested that a fight between the two campaigns could fracture the Democratic primary in a similar way that Sanders found in his long fight with Hillary Clinton in 2016.
"Democrats are taking their cues from socialist Bernie Sanders", along with the group of freshman women in the House known as "The Squad", Trump said. "Let's be clear: As a party, and as a country, we can't afford to repeat the factionalism of the 2016 primary".
Politico reports: "The script instructs Sanders volunteers to tell voters leaning toward the MA senator that the "people who support her are highly-educated, more affluent people who are going to show up and vote Democratic no matter what" and that "she's bringing no new bases into the Democratic Party.' ..."
The back-and-forth between the progressive senators comes a few days after a Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom Iowa Poll showed 20% of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa would name Sanders as their top choice for the presidential nomination.
Yes, there are some significant differences between the two candidates, especially on foreign policy (which is one of the reasons that I actively support Sanders).
Sanders denied he's trashing Warren in an exchange with reporters and denied responsibility for the script: "I got to tell you, I think this is a little bit of a media blowup, that kind of wants conflict". "Elizabeth Warren is a very good friend of mine".
"As president, I will ensure the DNC works with state party leaders at every level to re-order the primary calendar in ways that better reflect our diverse electorate and channel more resources into the states we actually need to win in November", Mr. Bloomberg wrote in a CNN piece. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) campaign, and hopes Sanders "reconsiders" using them.
The Sanders script clearly goes against the two progressive's long-standing agreement to not trash one another on the campaign trail.
"We have over 500 people on our campaign". Elizabeth Warren has hundreds of employees. You heard me give many speeches.
Sanders responded Monday to the report which CNN said came from two people who spoke to Warren directly after the meeting and two others who were familiar with the allegedly sexist exchange.
Both Sanders and Warren, who are vying for the progressive lane in the primary and largely agree on numerous biggest issues in the race, have up until now publicly avoided attacking one another and in fact have been complimentary of each other. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could. "But here's my concern about her", it adds, before moving to the criticism of her supporters. The people who support her are highly educated and richer people who are going to stand and vote for the Democrats, no matter what, "he says".
