You won’t believe what Bernie Sanders said to Elizabeth Warren behind closed doors
Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are two of the top contenders to win the Democrat Party Presidential nomination.
With the Iowa Caucuses just weeks away, the two are heading into a confrontation that could define the race.
And you won’t believe what Bernie Sanders said to Elizabeth Warren behind closed doors.
In recent weeks Bernie Sanders has surged past Warren as the radical Left grassroots base coalesced behind his campaign.
Sanders overtook Warren in polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, which left Warren – who was assumed to be the darling of the Left – frustrated.
And on the eve of the final Democrat debate before Iowa, Warren’s allies leaked a story to CNN claiming Sanders told Warren during a 2018 meeting that a woman could not get elected President of the United States.
The two agreed that if they ultimately faced each other as presidential candidates, they should remain civil and avoid attacking one another, so as not to hurt the progressive movement. They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate: She could make a robust argument about the economy and earn broad support from female voters.
Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win.
The description of that meeting is based on the accounts of four people: two people Warren spoke with directly soon after the encounter, and two people familiar with the meeting.
Sanders strongly denied the story and said Warren’s allies lied about what was said.
In his telling, Sanders recalled explaining to Warren that an obsession with identity politics would doom the Democrats in 2020.
But with Iowa fast approaching and Warren stagnating while Sanders rises, the gloves have come off and Warren will do and say anything to regain her momentum.
