Warren, Sanders and Buttigieg strong during 4th Dem debate

Senator Elizabeth Warren came out strong during the fourth Democratic debate ahead of the U.S. 2020 election. The debate took place in Ohio, last night. The main points of discussion were the economy and the inquiry to impeach the current U.S. President Donald Trump. The debate consisted of 12 candidates on stage, marking the event as the most crowded in presidential history. 

Despite having her proposals related to the health care plan repeatedly questioned, Senator Warren managed to portray a strong character and weathered the challenge calmly. She vowed to increase taxes for the U.S.’ wealthy and have the middle-class pay lower amounts. Mayor Pete Buttigieg stated, “I don’t understand why you believe the only way to deliver coverage for everybody is to obliterate private plans.” 

Furthermore, the focus then shifted onto gun laws and gun control, during which Buttigieg addressed the former Republican Beto O’Rourke to explain that the policy is the mina issue with gun violence. Answering the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana, O’Rourke said, “We don’t go door to door to do anything in this country to enforce the law… The expectation is that Americans will follow the law. I believe in this country. I believe in my fellow Americans. I believe they will do the right thing.” However, the response did not satisfy Buttigieg, who stated that “If you can develop the plan further, I think we can have a debate about it. But we can’t wait. People are dying in the streets right now. We have to just get something done.” 

The democratic candidates attacked Trump’s method of handling political issues on Twitter. California Senator Kamala Harris has previously asked Twitter to remove Trump’s account and urged people to join her. Warren quickly noted, “Look, I don’t just want to push Donald Trump off Twitter. I want to push him out of the White House. That’s our job.”
