An old video clip surfaced on social media on Monday showing Bernie Sanders claiming that a woman “could be elected president,” which contradicts a CNN report alleging that he had told his Senate colleague Elizabeth Warren the opposite.

CNN reported on Monday that according to multiple sources close to Warren and familiar with the encounter, Sanders had told the Massachusetts Democrat during a December 2018 meeting prior to either of them launching their presidential bids and after learning that she was running, Sanders “responded that he did not believe a woman could win.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Since that report was published, a Twitter user shared a clip from 1988 of Sanders, who at the time was expressing his support for Jesse Jackson’s presidential campaign.

Notable: The CNN report relies on four anonymous sources with no direct knowledge of the conversation.

Also noteworthy: The discussion between Sanders and Warren was about who could beat Trump in 2020, not who could win as president in general.

“They also discussed how to best take on President Donald Trump, and Warren laid out two main reasons she believed she would be a strong candidate,” the report said. “Sanders responded that he did not believe a woman could win.”
