Hillary Clinton not only attacked Donald Trump for his suggestion that women who receive illegal abortions be punished, she also took aim at the reaction from Bernie Sanders, a fellow pro-choice Democrat.
“Last night, Sen. Sanders agreed Donald Trump’s comments were shameful,” Clinton told an audience of college students in Purchase, N.Y., on Thursday. “Then he said they were a distraction from the, and I quote, 'serious discussion about serious issues facing America.'”
“To me, this is a serious issue,” she said. “And it is a serious discussion. We need a president who is passionate about this … seeing it as a top priority because women’s health is under assault.”
