Vying to earn the Democratic nomination as the party’s presidential candidate for the November 8 election, Clinton and Sanders sparred over trade and auto bailout along with foreign policy issues, during the debate in Michigan.
“Excuse me, I’m talking. Can I finish, please?” the Vermont senator said, drawing boos from the crowd after Clinton tried to cut in during their exchange over support for the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program.
Sanders’ harsh tone and remarks came after one of the toughest attacks on him by Clinton. She said, “If everybody had voted the way he did, I believe the auto industry would have collapsed, taking four million jobs with it.”
