A co-chair of Bernie Sanders' (D-VT) presidential campaign denies that the Vermont senator meant to "trash" Sen. "But here's my concern about her".

It is unclear if the script was intended for phone calls or door-to-door efforts.

Politico obtained a copy of the Sanders campaign script, which volunteers reference while speaking with potential voters. But Sanders later told reporters that he did not approve of it, according to BuzzFeed News' Ruby Cramer. We have worked together in the Senate for years. We have differences on issues.

After entering the race late and missing the first six Democratic debates, Bloomberg generally sits fifth in national public opinion polls behind Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Warren and Pete Buttigieg.

"We have hundreds of employees". Elizabeth Warren has hundreds of employees. I've visited them all recently, and nearly to a person, voters tell me the other campaigns have nearly no presence in their cities.

"One of the reasons I'm reasonably confident I could beat Trump is I would be acceptable to the moderate Republicans you have to have", said Bloomberg, a former Republican who made his fortune selling financial information to Wall Street firms.

"I have never said a negative word about Elizabeth Warren, who is a friend of mine", he added. That's what a campaign is about.

"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". "Democrats want to win in 2020: we all saw the impact of factionalism in 2016 and we can't repeat it".

The summit came as the head of Niger's army was replaced after two of the deadliest attacks on its soldiers in living memory. France's Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly on Saturday echoed similar concerns about this growing French hostility.

"I think maybe the American people want to know how we're gonna provide healthcare to all our people, let's discuss it", he declared.

Meanwhile, President Trump is spending his time in Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina - all states we lost in 2016 by razor-thin margins.

Warren said that candidates "need to unite our party".

Rose, a freshman lawmaker who has already gained a reputation for having an independent streak within the Democratic Party, said he was backing Bloomberg's bid because of the former New York City mayor's "even-keeled and visionary leadership". Democrats need to reunite our party and that means pulling in all parts of the Democratic coalition. "It's just what it is", Turner said.

Sanders, who opposes military interventions and has warned that Trump is leading the United States to war with Iran, has criticized Biden for supporting the Iraq war. "There's no constituency in our party waiting to simply reward whomever attacks other Democrats the most - especially not during the most high-stakes election of our lifetimes".

But the campaign has also sought recently to go after Sanders' character, not just his policies. "We are going to expose the fact that when Trump talks about being a friend of working people, he is a liar and a fraud".

"If he spent less time in boardrooms courting CEOs, he would witness the incredible energy generated by Bernie's campaign, which has more than 5 million individual donations - the all-time record for a presidential candidate at this point in the race", Casca told Politico. "You're not going to get me in a fight with Bernie".
