Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a message Monday night for a young supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) who said young people don't trust Clinton: Don't get distracted.
At a CNN town-hall event Monday night, a student confronted Clinton about the perception that she is dishonest.
"I've heard from quite a few people my age that say you're dishonest," said the supporter, who described himself as a supporter of Sanders.
He proceeded to ask her about what he perceived as an enthusiasm gap among young people for Clinton's campaign vs. Sanders'.
Clinton said she was "totally happy to see young people involved in any way." But she said she wanted voters to know that she believes she's frequently attacked because she fights for progressive causes.
