Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) criticized his “good friend” Hillary Clinton for comments she made recently in India, telling Fox News that the Democratic Party is “moving on” from Clinton during an interview on Sunday.
During a recent trip to India, Clinton suggested that Trump supporters didn’t like African Americans “getting rights,” or women “getting jobs.”
Fox News’ Chris Wallace asked Durbin whether these comments by Clinton are helpful to Democrats running in 2018.
“No it’s not helpful at all,” Durbin said. “In fact, my friend Hillary Clinton is wrong.”
Wallace also asked Durbin whether he agreed with Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) that Clinton could not get out of politics “soon enough.”
“Hillary Clinton, like every American, has the right to express her point of view, and she obviously gets press coverage,” Durbin said. “But we’re moving on to the next chapter of American history. We have new Democratic leadership, and more people aspiring to be a candidate in 2020. It will be a different cast of characters completely.”
