Sanders raised about $26 million for his presidential campaign in the past three months, his campaign said Wednesday, almost matching the $28 million take of Democratic front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.
President Obama effectively dismissed Hillary Clinton’s opinion on the Syrian crisis during his press conference Friday, complimenting her time as his secretary of state but adding that there is a “difference between running for president and being president“.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would oppose any attempt to unilaterally impose a “no-fly zone” over Syria, breaking with fellow Democratic primary candidate Hillary Clinton, who in an interview Thursday said she would “advocate” for one in order to “create humanitarian corridors” on the ground.
She announced her support of a no-fly zone this week.
Obama was also asked about Vice President Joe Biden, and whether it’s too late for his number two to get into the race against Clinton, as he has been considering. Obama reluctantly backed a proposal to equip opposition forces a year ago but has used the program’s failure to suggest his initial wariness was right all along.
That’s a split from the Obama administration, which earlier this week said no-fly zones weren’t on the table.
On Friday, Clinton recommended that the USA implement a no-fly zone in response to the war. “No more red lines, no more looking the other way”.
GOP candidate Jeb Bush didn’t hesitate in tweeting out that he was first to propose a plan that would deal with Syria and ISIS, including a no-fly zone. Marco Rubio, and former business executive Carly Fiorina. USA officials have questioned that, saying the areas hit were strongholds of rebels seeking to oust President Bashar Assad. A substantial number of USA combat aircraft would then have to patrol the skies continuously to enforce the exclusion zone.
However, the USA government has so far resisted such calls.
“We’re not interested in military cooperation in Syria with Russian Federation”, Kasich said.
