“Trump says very scary things—deporting immigrants, massive militarism and, you know, ignoring the climate,” Stein said in an interview with Democracy Now, according to a transcript. “Well, Hillary, unfortunately, has a track record for doing all of those things."

“So, the terrible things that we expect from Donald Trump, we’ve actually already seen from Hillary Clinton,” Stein added. “So I’d say, don’t be a victim of this propaganda campaign, which is being waged by people who exercise selective amnesia.”

Stein also echoed the presumptive Republican nominee's call for Bernie SandersBernie SandersOcasio-Cortez's 2nd grade teacher tells her 'you've got this' ahead of DNC speech Trump and allies grapple with how to target Harris Chris Wallace: Kamala Harris 'not far to the left despite what Republicans are gonna try to say' MORE to mount a third-party bid, inviting him to be a Green Party candidate and accusing the “Democratic machine” of rigging the primary against him. 

“What I’m saying is that if Senator Sanders made the case that now he understood, after the very, you know, disturbing experiences of the last many months and the way that he’s been mistreated and beaten up by the party, perhaps he has a different view of the potential to create revolution inside of a counterrevolutionary party,” she said. “Maybe he has come to see the necessity for independent third parties to actually move this movement forward.”

Clinton clinched the Democratic nomination earlier this week, and Sanders, who serves in the Senate as an Independent, has vowed not to run outside the party and to be a Democrat from now on.

“My hope, as Senator Sanders himself said, is that this is a movement, it’s not a man,” Stein said. “My hope is that the movement will continue.”
