Sanders said that it is “the nature of politics” that some of his supporters declined to support Clinton in the general election.

“That’s what happens in politics,” he said.

Clinton, whose book “What Happened” about her election loss came out last week, has blamed Sanders for inflicting “lasting damage” on her campaign.

“I don’t think it’s useful to go backwards. I think we’ve got to go forwards,” Sanders said Sunday.
