Senator Elizabeth Warren was on Tuesday the main target of the attacks in the fourth Democratic debate, whose participants showed unity in the investigation prior to a Trump political trial and avoided questioning the performance of former Vice President Joe Biden regarding Ukraine .
The criticisms and challenges that several of the aspiring Democrats addressed to Warren during the debate that took place in Westerville (Ohio, USA) showed that some see more and more the senator, and not so much Biden, as the favorite in the Democratic primary race for the 2020 elections in the US
Warren received criticism from Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar about his plan to promote a public health system in the United States, as well as the latter and former Congressman Beto O'Rourke regarding his intention to impose a wealth tax of the wealthiest in the country.RELATED
"Sometimes I think Senator Warren is more focused on being punitive against part of the country, rather than making sure we can help people," O’Rourke said in general.
Warren replied, puzzled: "The idea of someone thinking that I am punitive leaves me stunned."
The Massachusetts senator has risen in recent weeks in surveys in key states and has been ahead of Biden in some national polls, so several of the candidates of the moderate spectrum of the party, who have not dared to criticize the former vice president, they decided to try their luck with her.
The one in Ohio was also the first debate since the president of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, announced at the end of September the opening of an investigation prior to a political trial against US President Donald Trump.
Although the basis of that political trial has to do with Trump's pressures on Ukrainian leaders to investigate Biden, the aspiring Democrats dodged any debate about the possibility of the former vice president committing negligence related to the Ukrainian interests of his son Hunter .
“My son did nothing wrong, I did nothing wrong. (When I was vice president) I carried out the policy of the US Government, that of combating corruption in Ukraine, ”said Biden.
The rest of the candidates focused their words on defending the need for political judgment against Trump, and Senator Cory Booker even criticized the moderators for asking the "statesman" Biden about the issue.
“That has been offensive (…). The only person who has enjoyed that when seeing him from home has been Donald Trump, ”Booker said.
The aspirants also condemned Trump's decision to withdraw US troops from northern Syria just before the Turkish offensive against the Turks, and Senator Bernie Sanders came to the point of declaring that Turkey is "no longer an ally of the United States" because He is committing a "mass murder."
