Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren ’s “nonaggression” pact appears to be straining against the weight of the fast-approaching Iowa caucus more than a year after agreeing not to attack each other during the Democratic primary so as to avoid harming the progressive movement.

The actor and musician Greg Cipes tweeted using the hashtag to say Warren is "revealing herself as a fake, not so great politician, trying to use dirty below the belt cheap tactics to hurt a real public servant of the People like Bernie. Her shenanigans Ain't gonna help boost her failing campaign. She's just another politician."

Five takeaways from January's Democratic debate in Iowa

  Five takeaways from January's Democratic debate in Iowa Six candidates, one stage, just a handful of tickets out of Iowa. The Democratic debate in the Hawkeye State, which serves for the next three weeks as center of the political universe, marked the seventh round of candidate clashes and the first of the new year. It had the fewest participants and could prove the most consequential — though it was arguably the most soporific — as it came a scant 20 days before the first ballots of the marathon campaign are cast.

Elizabeth Warren confirmed reporting that Bernie Sanders in 2018 "disagreed" that a woman could beat President Trump to become president. Warren and her campaign had been silent on the issue after it broke Monday afternoon. Sanders and his campaign denied any such comment was made.

Warren backers, the script said , are “highly educated, more affluent people who are going to show ( Sanders disputed this, saying that he argued only that Trump “is a sexist, a racist and a liar who A Warren candidacy would not force centrist Democrats to make their peace with socialism nor ask

But the comedian Sean Kent tweeted: "#RefundWarren is a joke. Bernie said something f**ked up and he should own it. Also the idea that thousands of Berners donated to her campaign is hilarious. They only give money to their overlord."

While some claimed to be requesting refunds, Warren supporters said the hashtag encouraged them to donate more money to her campaign.

Newsweek has also asked the Warren and Sanders campaigns for comment and will update this article if any is provided.

The #RefundWarren campaign erupted on Twitter after Warren issued a statement confirming recent reports that Sanders, a Vermont independent, had said to her back in 2018 he did not believe a woman could win the presidency. Sanders, however, has flatly denied saying it.

"Bernie and I met for more than two hours in December 2018 to discuss the 2020 election, our past work together and our shared goals: Beating Donald Trump, taking back our government from the wealthy and well-connected, and building an economy that works for everyone," Warren said in a statement, according to The New York Times.

"Among the topics that came up was what would happen if Democrats nominated a female candidate. I thought a woman could win; he disagreed. I have no interest in discussing this private meeting any further because Bernie and I have far more in common than our differences on punditry.

"I'm in this race to talk about what's broken in this country and how to fix it—and that's what I'm going to continue to do. I know Bernie is in the race for the same reason. We have been friends and allies in this fight for a long time, and I have no doubt we will continue to work together to defeat Donald Trump and put our government on the side of the people."

CNN had first reported the comments Sanders allegedly made to Warren about a woman's ability to win the presidency, citing several anonymous sources with knowledge of the conversation between the two.

"It is ludicrous to believe that at the same meeting where Elizabeth Warren told me she was going to run for president, I would tell her that a woman couldn't win," Sanders said in a statement to CNN.

"It's sad that, three weeks before the Iowa caucus and a year after that private conversation, staff who weren't in the room are lying about what happened. What I did say that night was that Donald Trump is a sexist, a racist and a liar who would weaponize whatever he could.

"Do I believe a woman can win in 2020? Of course! After all, Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 3 million votes in 2016."
