On Tuesday night – the first night of the second round of the Democratic presidential debates, the following politicians answered questions in Detroit, Michigan: Beto O’Rourke, John Hickenlooper, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Tim Ryan, John Delaney, Steve Bullock, Marianne Williamson, Amy Klobuchar and Bernie Sanders. During the night, the Democratic candidates were asked questions on a range of crucial subjects including foreign policy and healthcare and the answers revealed their standpoints regarding those subjects.
In my outlook, Bernie was the best performing candidate out of the ten because he said tough protections at the border will not compel an increasing number of people to come to the country in an illegal way, even if undocumented immigrants are supplied with both free healthcare and college. He said when the Democrats are in the White House, he supports bringing everybody together to discuss how to rebuild El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala so people do not have to escape from those nations.
Furthermore, Sanders said millions of Americans are either uninsured or underinsured, even though the health care industry made billions in profits the past year. He said thousands and thousands of Americans become bankrupt annually owing to medical bills but in Canada you leave a hospital without a bill. He said half of the population of the country survive from paycheck to paycheck. He also said he will not belittle the United Nations but instead bring Middle Eastern nations and nations from around the world together and make them slowly accept their differences. Some of the other remaining candidates had performed well too; the important points they had made are written below:
Beto said he supports the halting of criminally prosecuting families plus children for looking for asylum and also refuge (in the United States). He said he supports helping countries in Central America from which people are coming to look for sanctuary in the country. He said, if elected, he would bring back members of the armed forces from nations such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen and Libya, during his first year as the President. He also said Donald Trump looking to ban Muslims from the shores of the United States upsets feelings.
Meanwhile, Elizabeth said, when it comes to healthcare, she supports the sliding of costs for middle class families. She said she supports the creation of a pathway to citizenship (in the United States) for people who work at farms (inside the country) plus for students who have overstayed. She said she wants to place billions of dollars inside what in the past have been black colleges plus universities. She also said white supremacy should be confronted as homegrown terrorism.
Additionally, Tim said it is not about the left or right of the political order and instead it is about new plus better. He said he supports undocumented people purchasing healthcare. He also said he supports schools plus communities having quality food. John said relationships with China who are tricking international agreements, should be improved and, when it comes to tax, those who invest to make a living should not pay less than those who are employed to make a living. Pete said the immigration problem is a stain on the country and it is a problem of amateurishness and brutality.
