“I have my doubts about what kind of president she would make,” Sanders said.
“A candidate like Secretary Clinton, who voted for the disastrous war in Iraq, who has supported virtually every disastrous trade agreement that has cost us millions of decent-paying jobs and receives incredible amounts of money,” the Vermont Senator continued.
“We’re talking about tens of millions of dollars through a super-PAC, from every special interest that you can think of, from the billionaire class.”
The Hill reports:
Sanders had previously questioned Clinton’s qualifications to be president. He said he was responding to attacks from the Clinton campaign.In the interview Sunday, Sanders said he has tried to focus his campaign on the issues facing the country.“We have tried to run an issue-oriented campaign, but we are not going to be attacked every single day; our record is not going to be distorted. We are going to fight back,” he said.Still, Sanders said he would do everything in his power to ensure a Republican candidate does not win the general election.“I think she and I would agree, and I hope that that is her view, that we will do everything possible to prevent this country from seeing a Donald Trump or some other Republican in the White House,” he said.“That would be a disaster for this country, and I will do everything I can to prevent that.”
