The Fifth Democratic Debate Recap
November 22, 2019
This past Wednesday night, the top ten Democratic primary candidates took to the stage at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, Georgia for the fifth Democratic debate of the year. For the first time this election cycle and only the third time in U.S. history, the debate was moderated by an all-female panel, which included Rachel Maddow of MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC, Ashley Parker of The Washington Post, and Kristen Welker of NBC.
The Democratic Candidates
As expected, the candidates who were involved provided little substance throughout the two-hour debate, and the most important questions surrounding U.S. national security were overshadowed by talks of open borders and impeachment. Nonetheless, here are three key takeaways from Wednesday night’s debate:
1. Obsessed With Impeachment
Given the last two weeks of impeachment hearings and testimonies, it was only a matter of time until the moderators would ask the candidates where they stood on the impeachment of President Trump. It was no surprise to hear they all agreed with the coup, however, what was surprising was to hear this topic discussed for the first twenty minutes of the debate, which ultimately took away from time spent discussing real issues that threaten our country. The Democrats can’t wrap their minds around the fact that President Trump has been effective in securing our southern border, strengthening our foreign relations, and delivering on jobs and the economy. If impeachment is a sign of anything, it is a sign of how unconfident the Democrats are that they will retake the White House 2020 and their will to overturn the 2016 election.
2. Complicit With Illegal Immigration
It is amazing to witness how far left the Democrats have taken their party on issues concerning illegal immigration. When asked if she would use taxpayer dollars to remove sections of the wall along our southern border, Elizabeth Warren said, “of course we should do it.” When asked the same question, Cory Booker said, “absolutely, if this is not effective, we see people cutting holes in this wall, his wall, the way he brags about it, it’s just wrong.” Lastly, to top off the night, Bernie Sanders said he would “stand with the eleven million undocumented immigrants.” After five debates now of similar rhetoric being spewed, it is crystal clear that the Democrats want to open our borders and would put illegal aliens over American citizens.
3. Content With Abandoning Our Allies
Earlier this month, Democratic hopefuls Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and Pete Buttigieg all announced, that if elected President, they would potentially withdraw U.S. military aid from Israel in favor of Palestinians and Hamas terrorists. During Wednesday night’s debate, this notion of pressuring our long-standing ally with defense aid was reinforced. Bernie Sanders said, “it is no longer good enough for us simply to be pro-Israel” and was greeted with applause from the crowd. The candidates want to engage with enemies like Iran and the Taliban while ignoring our allies like Israel. The sentiment of abandoning our strongest ally in the Middle East is a concerning trend that is spreading throughout the Democratic party.
With discussions that ranged from opening our borders to praising the Iran nuclear deal, the best-of-the-best 2020 Democratic candidates have proven that they would be a disaster in leading the United States towards a successful future. The party has gone off the rails in recent years, and there was not one Democrat on stage Wednesday night who proposed a policy focused on keeping our country safe and secure.
The Democrats put illegal aliens over American citizens. They put our enemies over our allies. They put themselves over the United States of America.
