Bernie Sanders Believes Bill Clinton Has Hit Below the Belt

"I felt that President Clinton said things that were just not accurate."

And when asked whether Clinton has hit below the belt, Sanders said, "I think so."

“Look, I know he’s going to be out there defending his wife; trust me, my wife will be out there defending me,” Sanders said.

“I hope we can debate the issues and how we propose to bring about the changes that America needs,” he said. “That’s the kind of debate I think American people would like to hear, not nasty.”

Sanders comments come after Bill Clinton attacked his supporters who he alleges aim sexist comments at Hillary Clinton supporters.

But if the elections were held tomorrow in those states, Sanders said, he would lose.

Sanders said the two discussed the needs of the African-American community, and while his rallies may lack diversity in the crowd, he said, he expressed confidence in “see[ing] more diversity.”

“I think what the polling is showing is that we are doing better and better with the African-American community and with the Latino community," Sanders said.

But Sanders says he confident his message will reach the black community.

“I think we are especially focusing now on a broken criminal justice system and the need for real police reform,” he said, “which I think will result in a lot of African-Americans and Latinos paying increased attention to our campaign."
