The Democratic presidential front-runner’s campaign is taking aim at the Vermont senator’s comments about the importance of running against the system, calling them “dangerous” and “dangerously irresponsible.”
In an interview on ABC’s This Week Sunday, Sanders said Clinton “is going to be very aggressive on the issue of Wall Street.”
“I think what she is doing, and what she has done is she is basically saying, ‘We can’t get a deal done,’ and that means she is going to go in the exact opposite direction than any Democrat, who has been trying to get a decent deal,” Sanders said.
Clinton’s campaign immediately took to Twitter to slam Sanders for his remarks, accusing him of “bias and ignorance.”
“Bernie Sanders’ recent comments on Hillary Clinton are dangerous and irresponsible.
He needs to stop running against rigged, unfair, and unfair rules,” tweeted campaign manager Jeff Weaver.”
Hillary Clinton is not a leader who can take on the entrenched special interests.
She can’t be the person who makes good on promises to keep America safe, secure, and prosperous,” he added.
In the interview, Sanders also discussed his own political future.
“I want to do what I can to make sure that we have a real debate about what we have done and what we need to do,” he said.
“I am going to continue to try to make that case, and we will see what happens.”
