-You ask me fair questions,
I will give you fair answers. -Thank you, sir.
-That’s a deal. -And, you know, not everybody
thought that I should come on this show. -We appreciate it.
-Alright. -Will you pay your fair share? -How can you challenge the idea
that socialism is bad? -Why do you believe
that the government can provide better healthcare
than the private sector? -How would you bring
back jobs in industry? -Now, you raised the issue
I am a millionaire. Well, actually, this year,
we had $560,000 income. That’s a lot of money. And that money in my case,
my wife’s case, it came from a book
that I wrote. Pretty good book.
You might want to read it. So if anyone thinks that
I should apologize for writing a best-selling book,
I’m sorry. I’m not gonna do it. I guess on Fox News, you said that I benefited
from Trump’s tax bill. Did you tell people that I voted
against Trump’s tax bill? -Sure, but you
did benefit from it. -But I voted against it. But whether it’s me or you
or anybody else, I think wealthy people
and large corporations that are making billions
of profits should start paying
their fair share of taxes. Why don’t you get Donald Trump
up here and ask him
how much he pays in taxes. -I will.
-You will? Good. I guess the President watches
your network a little bit, right? Hey, President Trump, my wife
and I just released 10 years. Please do the same. Let the American people
know how much… Whether you’re a conservative
or moderate or progressive, I don’t think
the American people are proud that we have a president
who is a pathological liar. If we spend all of our time
attacking Trump, you know what? Democrats are gonna lose. Alright. Our job — our job is to lay out
a vision that makes sense to the working
families of this country. And that’s kind of what
I’m trying to do. I believe that healthcare is
a human right, not a privilege. -A show of hands of how
many people get their insurance from work,
private insurance right now. How many get it
from private insurance? Okay. Now, of those, how many
are willing to transition to what the senator says
a government-run system? -We don’t need to
demonize immigrants. That we don’t need to do. What we need is comprehensive
immigration reform. That’s what
the American people want. -That is what
the American people want. -And if we had a president who believed in that,
we could actually do it. -You are looking to become
the first Jewish president. -Yeah. -You’re also a staunch supporter
of Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. -I’ve talked to Ilhan
about twice in my life, so I support a Muslim
member of Congress not to be attacked
every single day in outrageous, racist remarks. -Sure. -I think that Ilhan has got
to do maybe a better job in speaking
to the Jewish community. If your question to me is,
do I think she is anti-Semitic, no, I don’t. It is not anti-Semitic
to be critical of a right-wing government
in Israel. We have a lot more in common
than most people think we do. Alright?
Poll after poll. Should we raise the minimum wage
to a living wage? Yes. Should we rebuild our
crumbling infrastructure? -Yes!
-Should we make sure that our veterans get the healthcare
that they have earned? -Yes!
-Alright. Should we make sure
that we do not cut Social Security
or Medicare or Medicaid? Should we give huge tax
breaks to billionaires? -No!
-You know, that’s how most people feel.
