Sanders denies reports claiming that he told Warren women couldn't win 2020 election
On Jan. 13, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) strongly denied news reports alleging that he told Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) that a woman could not win the White House in 2020.
"It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn't win," Sen. Bernie Sanders said. He was responding to new reports that he told Warren a woman couldn't win in 2020. Elizabeth Warren confronted Bernie Sanders face-to-face in Tuesday's debate over her allegation that he told her privately that a woman could not be elected president. Sen. Bernie Sanders told Sen. Elizabeth Warren during a private meeting in 2018 that he did not believe a woman could win the presidency, sources say. Sanders has denied the characterization of the meeting in a statement to CNN. Sen. Elizabeth Warren sits down with Lawrence O'Donnell to discuss all things 2020, including Kamala Harris' recent exit from the race, support for her wealth tax and her goal of getting more people health care as president: "I will sign anything that helps and I'll keep fighting for more ways to help."
