Hillary Clinton on Wednesday brushed off comments from White House press secretary Sarah Sanders about her new memoir on the 2016 election, and said she doesn't pay attention to what Sanders says.

"I honestly don't pay much attention to what she says," Clinton said during an appearance on "The View."

Clinton appeared on the daytime television show to discuss her new book, What Happened, which hit the shelves Tuesday and focuses on the 2016 presidential election and her loss to Trump.

The Democratic presidential nominee is heading out on a months-long book tour to promote the memoir that includes more than a dozen stops.

Sanders was asked about Clinton's book during Tuesday's White House press briefing, and said it's "sad" Clinton has decided to spend her time promoting a book filled with "false" attacks.

"I think it's sad that after Hillary Clinton ran one of the most negative campaigns in history and lost, and the last chapter of her public life is going to be now defined by propping up book sales with false and reckless attacks," Sanders said. "I think that's a sad way for her to continue this."

Clinton lamented the information that is coming out of the White House and said she hopes as Trump's presidency continues, the administration will begin debating issues "on the basis of facts."

"We're not getting the kind of information from this White House that we should have. Whether you agree or disagree, whatever your party affiliation might be, and this goes to a deeper and larger question that I wrote about in the book," Clinton said. "A democracy depends upon people debating and disagreeing, but on the basis of reality, on the basis of facts and evidence so that then you can say look, here's what we know about name an issue, climate change, and we can disagree about what to do about it. But let's not take all these important issues that we're facing and try to put them into the alternate reality work of alternative facts."
