Sanders on Clinton Criticism: “Look Forward and Not Backward”

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, on Wednesday isn’t concerned about criticism from Hillary Clinton in her new book about her loss in the 2016 presidential election, saying he is not going to get into a tit-for-tat over who is to blame.

“My response is that right now it’s appropriate to look forward and not backward,” Sanders said in an interview with the Hill.

“I’m working overtime now to see we overturn Trump’s decision on DACA, pass a $15-an-hour minimum wage, and next week I’ll be offering a Medicare-for-all single-payer system,” he said.

The Vermont Senator said he is more interested in focusing on what is currently at hand and not who is to blame for President Trump winning the White House.

“Our job is to go forward,” he said.

Earlier this week, an excerpt from Clinton’s book “What Happened” claimed Sanders did irreparable damage to her campaign during the tightly contested primary.
