Sanders & Clinton square off in Michigan debate

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton faced each other in a debate on Sunday night after a rather intense week which saw the Democrats obtain significant wins. The debate took place in Flint, Michigan and was hosted by CNN. The moderator, Anderson Cooper, explained that the reason to choose this city was due to its water crisis. Both candidates expressed their commitment to help resolve this crisis.

The topic of Flint’s water crisis was debated well during the first 20 minutes of the event. Both candidates agreed that whoever was responsible for this toxic waste dumped into the water must be relieved of their job immediately. 

The topic was changed when a voter asked Mrs. Clinton how she would keep jobs from going overseas.  Clinton´s answer brought the first heated moment when Sanders stated, “I am very glad that Secretary Clinton has discovered religion on this issue, but it’s a little bit too late,” implying with this that his competitor has sponsored many disastrous trade agreements.  Mrs. Clinton fired back by stating how Sanders had opposed her proposed auto bailout, an important issue in Michigan, which depends on the auto industry for jobs. 

The arguments went back and forth as both candidates fired and tussled over each issue. Mr. Sanders called on Mrs. Clinton over her speeches to banking groups, insinuation that these are paid by the banks. Mrs. Clinton renounced such accusations. A discussion regarding gun violence sprang up as Mrs. Clinton brought up the topic.

The issue of fracking was debated and Mrs. Clinton stated that it should be controlled and Sanders emphatically said that this is something he does not support.

The topic of Donald Trump came about to which each candidate gave their personal opinion about it.  “Donald Trump’s bigotry, his bullying, and his bluster are not going to wear well on the America people,” Clinton said.   Bernie Sanders added that Sanders versus Trump does a lot better than Clinton versus Trump.”
