Sanders: I never told Warren a woman could never be president

Sen. Bernie Sanders denied he told Sen. Elizabeth Warren a woman would not be able to win the U.S. presidency, during the seventh Democratic debate Tuesday night.

"Well, as a matter of fact, I didn't say it. And I don't want to waste a whole lot of time on this, because this is what Donald Trump and maybe some media want. Anybody who knows me knows that it's incomprehensible that I would think that a woman cannot be president of the United States."
— Sen. Bernie Sanders

Warren responded saying: "I disagreed. Bernie is my friend, and I am not here to try to fight with Bernie," keeping with their pact to not publicly attack each other.
