Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) didn’t distance himself from controversial comments Hillary Clinton recently made regarding supporters of President Trump, during an interview on “The View” on Monday.

During a recent trip to India, Clinton suggested that Trump supporters didn’t like African Americans “getting rights,” or women “getting jobs.”

These comments have been met with backlash from top Democrats, including Sens. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO).

Clinton herself attempted to walk back the comments in a lengthy Facebook post on Sunday.

Meghan McCain of “The View” asked Booker whether he thought these comments were appropriate for Clinton to make.

“First of all, the election is over and has passed,” Booker said. “We have to, in this coming ’18 election – forget 2020 focus on right now – we have to begin to see each other for the truth of who we are.”

McCain followed up by asking Booker whether he thought this messaging from Clinton is hurting the Democratic Party.

“Again, Secretary Clinton lost the electoral vote. She is not president of the United States. My focus is on the future,” Booker said.

Unlike other top Democrats, Booker never explicitly expressed his disapproval with Clinton’s comments.
