At a campaign rally for his wife Hillary last night, Bill Clinton argued for more than ten minutes with Black Lives Matter activists, angry that criminal justice reforms passed during his presidency led to high incarceration rates among African-Americans.

Meanwhile Ted Cruz tried to explain what he meant when he criticized rival Donald Trump’s “New York values,” and Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders continued to trade barbs about presidential qualifications.

Univision anchor Enrique Acevedo and Washington Post politics reporter Katie Zezima talk with Here & Now’s Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson about the week in 2016 campaign news.
