USA election: 'Sanders said no woman could win', Warren says

Elizabeth Warren Bernie

Sanders reportedly responded to Warren's pitch about reviving the economy and appealing to female voters by telling her "he did not believe a woman could win" in 2020.

In his response, he said the comment had been made up by "staff who weren't in the room and are lying about what happened".

Sanders denied the characterization of the meeting in a statement to CNN.

CNN first reported Sanders' comment earlier Monday, based on the accounts of anonymous people with knowledge of the meeting.

Sanders said he called President Donald Trump "a sexist, a racist and a liar" during that conversation. I thought a woman could win.

A months-long truce forged between the left's leading presidential candidates is fraying after a new report that Bernie Sanders told Elizabeth Warren that he did not believe a woman could beat Donald Trump in 2020. According to at least one post-2016 election analysis, 1 in 10 people who voted for Sanders in the primaries voted for Trump - not Clinton - in the final. Pundits and political consultants who said Trump couldn't win have been saying the same about Sanders.

Still, the controversy is likely to revive anxiety among Democrats about whether - almost four years after Hillary Clinton lost her White House bid - voters are willing to support another woman running for president.

"I think it's a step forward in America if you have an African American CEO of some major corporation".

In November, Warren lied about sending her kids to public school. With the new allegations from sources close to Warren however, the truce between the two socialist senators tag-teaming their way through previous debates is likely to change this week with the next primetime event on Tuesday in Des Moines, Iowa.

President Trump has said if the deal goes through there certainly will be a change in intelligence collaboration. But the U.S. insists there is a surveillance risk.

Three weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses, Warren is now the only woman polling in the double-digits nationally.

As the two progressives in the race start to really fight it out, the top tier of centrist presidential candidates presents a choice between the old and politically scarred former vice president Joe Biden and the young and politically inexperienced Pete Buttigieg, former mayor of South Bend, Ind.

If Warren is attacked and Sanders goes unchallenged, he could win Iowa and New Hampshire. Some of his allies have also implicitly and explicitly gone after Warren on the broader question of who has the rightful claim to the progressive mantle in 2020.

Amid fresh warnings that progressives in the US should be on guard against efforts by the corporate media to sow division between the Warren and Sanders campaigns, CNN came under fire Monday afternoon after publishing an unsubstantiated hit piece that cited anonymous sources-not even in the room at the time-claiming Bernie Sanders privately told Elizabeth Warren in 2018 that a woman could not win the presidency.

If Warren and Sanders agreed on a non-aggression pact of sorts that night, that agreement has become increasingly frayed.

"People have to decide do they want originals or do they want copies", Nina Turner, Sanders' campaign co-chair, told CNN over the summer. She said she was "disappointed" Sanders was instructing staffers to "trash" her. Bernie knows me and has known me for a long time...

Tensions between the pair grew over the weekend following a Politico story which reported the Sanders campaign had instructed some volunteers to characterise Senator Warren as a candidate for wealthy and well-educated voters in conversations with undecided voters, Senator Warren issued a rare critique of her opponent. He added both campaigns have hundreds of employees, who "sometimes say things that they shouldn't".

With Sanders and Warren clashing over who could best carry the progressive torch, Trump weighed in: "Elizabeth is very angry at Bernie", he tweeted.
