Biden: I Told Bernie Sanders Not To Accept PAC Money, That People Wouldn't Trust You


In an interview with PBS NewsHour host Judy Woodruff, former Vice President Joe Biden revealed he advised 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders that he shouldn't take any money from political action committees, "because people can't possibly trust you."

"My positions are a hell of a lot closer to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on some of the economic positions," Biden said about a potential 2020 run for president.

"I sat with Bernie," Biden said of his meeting with the Clinton rival. "I’m the guy that told him, you shouldn’t accept any money from a super PAC, because people can’t possibly trust you. How will a middle-class guy accept if you accept money?"
