Night two of the second Democratic debate in Detroit was a heated one between the 2020 hopefuls. The candidates focused more on attacking one another on issues such as healthcare and immigration than they did on how they would defeat Donald Trump. Kamala Harris was slammed by several candidates for her healthcare plan and her tenure as California's attorney general, but it was Joe Biden who received the majority of the blows by almost every candidate. His record was constantly called into question, as well as his position on the Hyde Amendment. Biden's responses were references to his time serving with Barack Obama.
2020 Democratic presidential candidate, and Washington Governor, Jay Inslee talked with MSNBC's Chris Matthews just moments after the second night of the second Democratic Debate. He told Matthews that President Donald Trump had built his political success on white nationalism, and that the President had promoted "birtherism conspiracy theories."
The first Democratic debate of the 2020 election cycle featured the first ten of twenty candidates who qualified to participate. There were plenty of minor disagreements between the candidates, particularly on immigration, healthcare policy, and Donald Trump. Some notable moments are when Senator Warren publicly called for the elimination of private health insurance (a first for her), Julian Castro's passionate plea for a more inclusive immigration law, and a number of candidates answering questions in Spanish instead of English in a bid to appeal to Hispanic voters.
