Hillary Clinton dissed Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) proposal to make college free for all Americans by noting that taxpayers should not have to pay to send Donald Trump’s children to college.

Sanders has long pushed for free tuition at state colleges and universities, but Clinton on Saturday said that students at those schools should just be able to graduate debt-free.

“I believe that we should make community college free. We should have debt-free college if you got to a public college or university. You should not have to borrow a dime to pay tuition,” Clinton said. “I disagree with free college for everybody. I don’t think taxpayers should be paying to send Donald Trump’s kids to college.”
