“I think you called me a liar on national television,” Warren told Sanders.
“I think you called me a liar on national television,” Warren said.
“You know, let’s not do it now. If you want to have that discussion, we’ll have that discussion,” Sanders said.
“At any time,” said Warren.
“You called me a liar,” Sanders said, adding: “You told me, it’s okay, let’s not do it now.”
The words used by the candidates were not audible to viewers, but CNN said Wednesday the audio of the exchange had been found.
The two have been fighting for days for what was said during a private dinner in December 2018 at Warren’s apartment in Washington.
CNN reported Monday that Sanders had told Warren that a woman could not win the presidency. Sanders denied the bill and said in a statement that he described President Trump’s possible tactics.
“What I said that night was that Donald Trump is sexist, racist and liar who would put together everything he could,” Sanders said in the statement.
He noted that Hillary Clinton had won 3 million votes more than Trump in 2016, after he defeated Sanders for the Democratic nomination.
During Tuesday’s debate, both candidates confirmed their conflicting versions.
“Does anyone in their right mind believe that a woman cannot be president?” Sanders said. “I don’t think anyone believes that.”
Warren said he had told him that a woman could not beat Trump and added that he “did not agree.”
Then he went on to what he called a “frontal” attack on questions about the eligibility of a candidate.
He noted that the two women on stage, she and Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) Were the only two candidates who won all their elections, while men on stage had collectively lost 10 races.
The personal and very public dispute between Warren and Sanders caused a torrent of regrets among the Democrats, particularly those on the left worried that the dispute would give moderate candidates an advantage.
Just before CNN published the audio, Sanders addressed his followers through an online video and said that in the past two days, his campaign has raised $ 4 million from approximately 200,000 taxpayers, including 25,000 people who had not contributed prior to your campaign
“If that is not momentum, I don’t know what momentum is,” Sanders said.
