Trump slams Democratic candidates at debate for supporting health care for illegal immigrants
“All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare,” Trump tweeted. “How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!”
NBC “Today” co-host and debate moderator Savannah Guthrie merged immigration and health care in her questioning, asking the candidates to raise their hands if their government health care plans “would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants.”
In response, it appeared that every candidate on stage put their hands in the air.
Guthrie pivoted questioning to South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, asking him why he supported the idea.
“Because our country is healthier when everybody is healthier,” he replied.
