The Democratic Debate: Watch the Highlights From the First Half

“This is the CNN/
New York Times Democratic presidential debate.” “Sometimes there are issues
that are bigger than politics and I think that’s the case
with this impeachment inquiry.” “In my judgment,
Trump is the most corrupt president in the
history of this country.” “He has committed
crimes in plain sight. And he has consistently
since he won been selling out
the American people. He’s been selling out working
people, he’s been selling out our values, he’s been selling
out national security, and on this issue
with Ukraine he has been selling
out our democracy.” “If it’s not O.K. for
a president’s family to be involved in
foreign businesses, why was it O.K. for your son
when you were vice president? Vice President Biden?” “Look, my son did
nothing wrong. I did nothing wrong. Rudy Giuliani, the president
and his thugs have already proven that
they in fact are flat lying.” “Your son Hunter today
gave an interview, admitted that he made
a mistake and showed poor judgment by serving
on that board in Ukraine. Did you make a mistake
by letting him? You were the point person
on Ukraine at the time. If you can answer.” “Look, my son’s statement
speaks for itself. My son made a judgment. I’m proud of the
judgment he made. I’m proud of what
he had to say. And let’s focus on this: The fact of the
matter is that this is about Trump’s corruption.” “But you have not
specified how you’re going to pay for the
most expensive plan, Medicare for all. Will you raise taxes?” “Costs will go up
for the wealthy. They will go up for
big corporations. And for middle class families,
they will go down. I will not sign a bill into law that does not lower costs
for middle-class families.” “Your signature, senator, is to
have a plan for everything. Except this. No plan has been
laid out to explain how a multi-trillion dollar hole
in this Medicare for all plan that Senator Warren
is putting forward is supposed to get filled in.” “At least Bernie is being
honest here and saying how he’s going to pay for this and that taxes are
going to go up. And I’m sorry, Elizabeth, but you have not said that. And I’m tired of hearing,
whenever I say these things, ‘Oh it’s Republican
talking points.’ You are making Republican
talking points right now in this room by coming
out for a plan that’s going to do that.” “I think we need to be
focused on lifting people up. And sometimes I think
that Senator Warren is more focused
on being punitive or pitting some part of
the country against the other instead of lifting people up
and making sure this country
comes together.” “I’m really shocked
at the notion that anyone thinks
I’m punitive. Look, I don’t have a beef
with billionaires …” “Well, Anderson, this is
my first time on this stage, so I just want to start
by reminding everybody that every candidate here
is more decent, more coherent and more patriotic than the
criminal in the White House.” “This is the sixth debate
we have had in this presidential cycle and not nearly one word,
with all of these discussions about health care,
on women’s access to reproductive health care,
which is under full-on attack in America today. Women are the majority of the
population in this country. People need to keep their
hands off of women’s bodies and let women
make the decisions about their own lives.” “Thank you, senator.” “And let’s talk about that.”

  1. I am a swing voter in a swing state. Tulsi Gabbard is the only Democrat I would vote for, and all of my moderate friends agree.

  2. They hate Trump because he's getting done what they only have promised to do in the past. Their Jobs are on the line and they are AFRAID! Socialists – BEWARE!

  3. No one is beating trump this idiots say he’s corrupt and a criminal but don’t explain how or why and don’t have any logical plans to “fix” the country.

  4. Not once did you ask any questions of importance. This debate was a joke. Now I know why I am supporting Trump in 2020

  5. 0:45 Biden starting to sound a lot like Trump here.

    If we allow this guy to continue running, he will jeopardize the entire Democratic Party in 2020.

    Drop out, Joe. We don’t want to take any chances of losing to Trump. Clearly the Democrats screwed themselves in 2016 by picking Hillary. We don’t want to make the same mistake twice in a row.

  6. Sure, ignore Yang. The actual highlight of the debate. The New York Times has become a literal joke – no. They have always been a joke. If you disagree with me, look at the likes and dislikes. Give unbiased coverage, or no one will buy your joke of a subscription.

  7. All of these candidates are pathetic, no plans just more Trump bashing??? Trump is actually delivering on his promises while the Dems are defending their criminal actions and make believe policies!!!!

  8. Truly boggles the mind while contemplating the Dem contenders for President. Their policies,platform,position,agenda & stance are null & void. Other than the intention of confiscating our guns by leaving us defenseless against criminals and aborting full term babies…. They virtually have nothing. No plan, No course of action, No remedies for America's problems. Just the same putrid mantra "Orange man bad" " Russia" "Impeach"…..In the meantime President Trump is going after the heinous pedophiles, and baby rapists that the DEM/RINOS so adore! Unemployment at an all time low especially among blacks and hispanics! Watching the Dem criminals scramble is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. PATHETIC!

  9. Alright NYT, go on. Ignore Yang just like you did Trump during the 2016 election cycle. See where that gets you.

  10. "Women's access to reproductive health care"…. if this is such a good thing.. why relabel it, because we are talking about abortion, right?

  11. I don't think any of you Democrat's will do a better job..All your speech is insane No one of you cares about us American people..
    All you guy's think about is illegal alien's and giving out more free stuffs to them..Shame on all of you..All of you ➡👎👅🐀

  12. “he has committed crimes in plain sight” but nobody can prove he did anything wrong after three years and millions of dollars spent investigating…. what a joke! TRUMP 2020 🇺🇸


  14. Democrats never do what they say. They get in office and make millions.That is all they care about.Trump rally 35,000 he does what he said he would that is just the facts

  15. Liz warren wont admit shes going too triple my taxes in order to give me shittier healthcare than i earn at work. Btw i paid back my student loans.

  16. One true big loser for that debate ;  "CNN"   –  Truly bias & horribly moderatorated debate,   plain and simple.  They are so out of touch with the average American.  – The biggest winner has to have been Bernie by a big margin.  The more the media cuts out or tries to minimising Bernie the more they are actually helping his cause

  17. Nowadays media wanna talk like they got something to say, but nothing comes out when they roll their clips, just a bunch a gibberish and motherf*ckers act like they forgot about Yang.

  18. Donald Trump has the highest approval rating of all the minorities in the Free World since the time John F Kennedy walked the Earth. Don't believe the hype

  19. The candidate with the most coherent arguments and we'll planned ideas is just not included. Get out of here with this dumb media bias. #yanggang

  20. Kamala Harris is the worst. She acts tough…she thinks she can prosecute everyone. Wolf in sheep's clothing.

    BTW–Trump is ten times more entertaining than these cartoon characters.

  21. Don't mind me, just here to leave a dislike, btw crazy Bernie would ruin the economy in less than a month (for anyone who is a little knowledgable) and btw I do think that Yang is cool, his idea make sense economically.
