Sanders also criticized Clinton's liberal chops and trustworthiness earlier in the interview when the host argued she's pivoting away from President Obama's foreign policy after criticizing Sanders for not standing by the president's positions.

"Your point is, now she thinks she's won — I don't think she's won,” he said. “Now she's saying something different."
