Jane Sanders Says Bernie ‘Absolutely’ Would Have Defeated Trump ‘But It Doesn’t Matter Now’
During an appearance on CNN today, Bernie Sanders’ wife said that there was no doubt that he would’ve won if he were the Democratic presidential nominee facing off with Donald Trump.
In a conversation with host Wolf Blitzer, Jane Sanders was presented with a clip of her husband telling Blitzer “what good does it do now” when asked whether or not he thought he’d have defeated Trump.
With Blitzer telling her she is a “candid woman,” he asked Mrs. Sanders if she believed Bernie would have been the winner.
“Absolutely,” she answered. “But it doesn’t matter. The election is over.”
She was also asked if she thought her husband given a fair shot to capture the Democratic nomination. Mrs. Sanders said it was “yesterday’s news” but pointed out that “the DNC was on Secretary Clinton’s side.”
