Democratic debate in Detroit night 1: A quick recap
Candidates spend time talking health care, foreign relations, jobs
DETROIT – Experts say the road to the White House runs through Detroit.
On Tuesday night the first group of Democratic presidential candidates faced off at the Fox Theatre. A major topic was healthcare with more than 45 minutes dedicated to it.
It became clear there were wide gaps in opinions among some of the candidates. Senator Bernie S was blunt when responding to a claim by John Delaney that health care for all is bad.
"You're wrong," said Sanders. "Right now, we have a dysfunctional health care system ... health care is a human right, not a privilege. I believe that. I will fight for that."
The candidates also covered questions about jobs, foreign relations, immigration, education and the economy. They definitely spent time talking about their views of President Donald Trump and his time in the Oval Office.
