Bernie Sanders sat down with Late Show host Stephen Colbert for another interview about his Presidential campaign and where he sees the race weeks before the first caucuses and primaries are held. Sanders was asked what is different about this primary compared to 2016 and he said the biggest difference is his increased focus on global climate change. He was also asked about Trump's burgeoning conflict with Iran and Sanders responded that he would do everything he can to prevent war with Iran.
Nikki Haley sat down for an interview with Goldman Sachs executive John Waldron in front of an audience of the company's employees where she discussed the book she recently released, among a number of other issues. Haley spoke openly about her tenure in the Trump Administration while at the same time refusing to openly criticize her former boss over his unorthodox leadership style. She also spent a good portion of the interview discussing her biography and her career from a state congresswoman to United Nations Ambassador.
Pete Buttigieg sat down with the hosts of CBS This Morning to discuss his 2020 Presidential campaign and what he must do if he were to go deep into the primary season. Buttigieg was asked about his lagging support among people of color and he admitted that he has "got a lot more work to do to earn" trust of voters of color. He then pivoted to highlighting his work as mayor where he "directed resources to low-income and mainly minority neighborhoods to improve the quality of life there." Buttigieg also discussed the ongoing impeachment hearings, among a number of other topics.
Pete Buttigieg spoke with Rachel Maddow on her evening show to discuss recent criticisms he and his campaign have faced, specifically when it comes to his past work at the elite consulting firm McKinsey, which only recently released him from a nondisclosure agreement he had signed that prevented him from discussing his work there. Buttigieg admitted that it was an unforced error to not get in front of the issue and promised more transparency moving forward. He also vowed to begin allowing press into his fundraising events.
Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spoke with Gayle King on CBS This Morning for his first interview since announcing his Presidential candidacy in 2020. The twenty-five minute interview covered a range of topics, including whether he was trying to "buy" the nomination. Bloomberg insisted he wasn't trying to buy the nomination and said his wealth is actually a positive thing because he doesn't have to spend hours a day asking donors for money.
Elizabeth Warren sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show to have a more casual discussion about her 2020 candidacy for President. The two discussed Warren's proposed "wealth tax," Medicare for All, and, more lightly, why she is a fan of "pinky promises." Warren also played a game with Fallon where she had to answer rapid-fire questions on topics ranging from the somewhat serious to the downright silly.
