During a campaign rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Trump said Sanders is “a nasty guy, but I don’t believe he said this” because it’s “not his deal.”

After seemingly taking a shot at Hillary Clinton, Trump repeated his point.

“[Warren] said that Bernie said a woman can’t win. I don’t believe that Bernie said that,” Trump said. “I really don’t. It’s not kind of a thing he’d say.”

Trump made the remarks as the Democratic candidates were debating each other in Des Moines, Iowa, during which the CNN moderators asked Sanders and Warren about the conversation.

Sanders rigorously denied again that he’d told Warren a woman could not win the election.

“Anybody knows me knows that it’s incomprehensible that I would think that a woman could not be president of the United States,” he said.

Warren said she “disagreed” with Sanders, then she emphasized that she did not want to further engage in a feud with her fellow progressive rival.

“Bernie is my friend, and I am not here to try to fight with Bernie,” she said.

Warren’s own campaign has been telling supporters that Sanders’ comment wasn’t sexist.

“Claiming you’re worried a woman can’t win/flagging that she’ll receive sexist attacks is something many, many people feel,” a campaign official said in a private Twitter group chat, according to screenshots obtained by Buzzfeed News.
