Former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein took to Twitter for a second day in a debate with Senator Bernie Sanders over stock buybacks and employee wages.

Responding to Bernie Sanders’ critique of his own earlier comments, Blankfein referred to wages paid at the bank he used to head.

"Never thought I'd hear Sen. Sanders criticize me for not paying higher wages at my old firm," Blankfein tweeted.

Blankfein was tweeting a reply to a tweet from Sanders, which read: "Lloyd Blankfein, the former CEO of Goldman Sachs, is correct that the money from stock buybacks “doesn't vanish.” It increases the wealth of billionaires like him. Instead of making the very rich even richer, how about increasing wages for American workers. Is that a bad idea?"
