Tension is flaring in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, with each candidate questioning the other’s fitness to lead and Senator Bernie Sanders now going as far as saying that Hillary Clinton is not qualified to be president.
At a rally in Philadelphia on Wednesday night, Mr. Sanders took issue with recent criticism over his understanding of financial regulation policy and assailed her from multiple angles.
“She has been saying lately that she thinks that I am, quote-un-quote, not qualified to be president,” Mr. Sanders said. “Let me just say in response to Secretary Clinton, I don’t believe that she is qualified if she is, through her ‘super PAC’ taking tens of millions of dollars in special interest funds.”
He added: “I don’t think you are qualified if you have voted for the disastrous war in Iraq. I don’t think you are qualified if you supported the Panama free trade agreement.”
