Hillary Clinton says that, unlike Bernie Sanders, 'I don't believe in free college'

At the Democratic debate on Thursday night, Hillary Clinton went after Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) right away, saying in her opening statement that she's "not making promises I cannot keep."

Clinton said that she wants to ensure that "middle class kids" can go to college, "not Donald Trump's kids." Watch below. Peter Weber
