Hillary Dismisses the Idea That Sanders Is Helping Trump by Continuing to Fight Her

hillaryHillary Clinton spoke at great length about Bernie Sanders on Meet the Press this morning and made it clear to Chuck Todd she doesn’t think him staying in the race is basically “helping Donald Trump.”

She repeatedly talked about a need to unify while also affirming once again that “people have voted for me overwhelmingly in the Democratic primary process.” Clinton is clearly still confident she’ll be the Democratic nominee and she has been way more “vetted and tested.”

Todd asked if she really thinks Sanders hasn’t been vetted. Clinton said he’s likely never had “a single negative ad run against him,” whereas she’s dealt with that for decades.

Todd pressed her on whether she would listen to his issues with the primary system and whether she would debate him again. She said on both counts she would consider it.
