Presidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders met with President Barack Obama Wednesday. The meeting was casual and with no official agenda. It took place in the oval office where, according to Bernie Sanders, the two discussed some light politics but mainly divulged in discussion of foreign politics. This was after the town hall debate where Bernie was questioned over if he would be as experienced as his opponent Hillary Clinton on the topic. Seeing as she spent 2009 to 2013 serving as Obama’s secretary of state.
“I enjoyed the meeting and I thought it was a very positive and constructive meeting,” Said Sanders to reporters after the meeting, “The president and I discussed this morning a number of issues, foreign policy issues, domestic issues, occasionally a little bit of politics.” President had been quoted in a Politico interview recently, saying:
“The one thing everybody understands is that, this job right here, you don’t have the luxury of just focusing on one thing.” Clinton had spoken similarly in the town hall debate. However Bernie is confident that this statement from Obama does not mean he is in full support of Hillary.
“I know there was some discussion the other day about a Politico interview where he was tipping the scale towards Secretary Clinton,” Sanders claimed after the meeting, “I don’t believe that at all. I think he and the vice president have tried to be fair and even-handed in the process, and I suspect they will continue to be that way.”
