Part 5 of the Fox News GOP presidential debate in Detroit


>>>WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY, TO
THE FOX NEWS REPUBLICAN
PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.
WE WANT TO GET RIGHT BACK TO THE
QUESTIONS.
>>WE ARE HERE IN DETROIT.
THE TOP ISSUES IN MICHIGAN
ACCORDING TO FACEBOOK ARE
DISPLAYED IN A WORD CLOUD.
YOU’RE TAKING A LOOK AT.
THE SECOND BIGGEST ISSUE IS
CLEAN WATER.
THAT, OF COURSE, IS DIRECTLY
TIED WITH THE SITUATION IN
FLINT.
SENATOR RUBIO, BERNIE SANDERS
AND HILLARY CLINTON HAVE BOTH
BEEN TO FLINT.
THEY ARE BOTH RUNNING ADS IN
THIS STATE FOCUSING ON THAT.
FOCUSING ON SUPPORTING FLINT AND
FIXING THE PROBLEMS.
SHOWING IMAGES OF PEOPLE IN
FLINT, THANKFUL THAT THEY’RE
THERE.
WITHOUT GETTING INTO THE
POLITICAL BLAME GAME HERE, WHERE
ARE THE NATIONAL REPUBLICANS’
PLANS ON INFRASTRUCTURE AND
SOLVING PROBLEMS LIKE THIS?
IF YOU TALK TO PEOPLE IN THIS
STATE, THEY ARE REALLY CONCERNED
ABOUT FLINT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE
AISLE.
SO WHY HAVEN’T GOP CANDIDATES
DONE MORE OR TALKED MORE ABOUT
THIS?
>>WELL, I KNOW I’VE TALKED
ABOUT IT AND OTHERS IN OUR
CAMPAIGN HAVE TALKED ABOUT IT
AND OTHER CANDIDATES HAVE TALKED
ABOUT IT AS WELL.
WHAT HAPPENED IN FLINT WAS A
TERRIBLE THING.
IT WAS SYSTEMIC BREAKDOWN AT
EVERY LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT, BOTH
THE FEDERAL AND PARTIALLY —
BOTH THE STATE AND PARTIALLY AT
THE FEDERAL LEVEL AS WELL.
AND BY THE WAY, THE POLITICIZING
OF IT I THINK IS UNFAIR BECAUSE
I DON’T THINK SOMEONE WOKE UP
ONE MORNING AND SAID LET’S
FIGURE OUT HOW TO POISON THE
WATER SYSTEM TO HURT SOMEONE.
ACCOUNTABILITY IS IMPORTANT.
I GIVE THE GOVERNOR CREDIT.
HE TOOK RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT
HAPPENED AND HE’S TALKED ABOUT
PEOPLE BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE
AND THE NEED FOR CHANGE, WITH
GOVERNOR SNYDER.
THE WAY DEMOCRATS HAVE TRIED TO
TURN THIS INTO A PARTISAN ISSUE
THAT SOMEHOW REPUBLICANS WOKE UP
IN THE MORNING AND DECIDED, OH,
IT’S A GOOD IDEA TO POISON SOME
KIDS WITH LEAD.
IT’S ABSURD.
IT’S OUTRAGEOUS.
ALL OF US ARE OUTRAGE BY WHAT
HAPPENED AND WE SHOULD WORK
TOGETHER TO SOLVE IT AND THERE
IS A PROPER ROLE FOR THE
GOVERNMENT TO PLAY AT THE
FEDERAL LEVEL IN HELPING LOCAL
COMMUNITIES TO RESPOND TO A
CATASTROPHE OF THIS KIND NOT
JUST TO DEAL WITH THE PEOPLE
THAT HAVE BEEN IMPACTED BY IT
BUT TO ENSURE SOMETHING LIKE
THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN.
>>THANKS, SENATOR.
>>GOVERNOR KASICH, THE CITY OF
DETROIT HAS LONG SUFFERED WITH
URBAN BLITHE, BROKEN STREET
LIGHTS, DILAPIDATED AND VACANT
HOUSES AND SO ON.
IN 2013, DETROIT ACTUALLY
DECLARED BANKRUPTCY WHICH
HELPED, BUT THE SCHOOLS HERE
REMAIN A BIG PROBLEM.
THEY’RE $3.5 BILLION IN DEBT AND
ARE SOME OF THE MOST TROUBLED
AND POORLY TESTING IN THE
COUNTRY.
THE KIDS TOO OFTEN GO TO
CLASSROOMS THAT ARE UNSAFE,
FALLING APART, INFESTED WITH
RODENTS AND INSECTS.
EXPERTS SAY THE SCHOOLS COULD GO
BANKRUPT BY NEXT MONTH.
QUESTION TO YOU.
IF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT BAILED
OUT THE AUTO INDUSTRY HERE IN
DETROIT, SHOULD IT ALSO BAIL OUT
THE DETROIT SCHOOLS?
>>WELL, LOOK, FIRST OF ALL, I
THINK THE MAYOR NOW IS
CONTROLLING THE SCHOOLS.
THIS IS NOT MUCH DIFFERENT THAN
WHAT HAPPENED IN CLEVELAND,
OHIO, WHERE THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
DEMOCRAT MAYOR, THE UNION AND
BUSINESS LEADERS CAME TO SEE ME
AND SAID WOULD YOU HELP US TO
PASS LEGISLATION TO REALLY
CREATE A CEO ENVIRONMENT SO WE
CAN TAKE CONTROL OF THE SCHOOLS?
WE EVEN INVESTED IN A BUYOUT
PLAN WHERE WE BOUGHT OUT THE
TEACHERS WHO HAD BEEN THERE A
LONG TIME BECAUSE THERE WERE SO
MANY YOUNG TEACHERS WHO HAD BEEN
LAID OFF WHO WERE SO
ENTHUSIASTIC TO GET BACK IN THE
SCHOOLS, IT WORKED BEAUTIFULLY.
CLEVELAND’S COMING BACK.
THE CLEVELAND SCHOOLS ARE COMING
BACK BECAUSE OF A MAJOR
OVERHAUL.
IT’S THE SAME THING THAT HAS TO
HAPPEN IN ALL OF OUR URBAN
SCHOOLS.
AND, FRANKLY, LOOK, IF I WERE
PRESIDENT, I’D TAKE 104 FEDERAL
PROGRAMS, BUNDLE THEM INTO 4
BUCKETS AND SEND IT TO THE
STATES BECAUSE FIXING SCHOOLS
RESTS AT THE STATE AND THE LOCAL
LEVEL AND PARTICULARLY AT THE
SCHOOL BOARD LEVEL.
NOW, I ALSO BELIEVE —
[ APPLAUSE ]
I ALSO BELIEVE THAT YOU NEED TO
INTRODUCE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION
IN THOSE SCHOOLS.
YOU NEED MENTORING IN THOSE
SCHOOLS.
AND YOU NEED TO HAVE A SITUATION
WHERE PEOPLE CAN HAVE AN
ALTERNATIVE FORUM TO GET A
DEGREE AND YOU NEED SCHOOL
CHOICE.
BOTH VOUCHERS AND CHARTER
SCHOOLS.
ALL OF THOSE THINGS CAN COME
TOGETHER TO HELP, MEGYN.
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE.
I’LL GO QUICKLY.
WE AS ADULTS HAVE TO FIGHT IN
OUR NEIGHBORHOODS, IN OUR
COMMUNITY
COMMUNITIES, FOR OUR CHILDREN’S
EDUCATION.
PUT THE POLITICS ASIDE AND
EVERYONE IN THIS ROOM CAN PLAY A
ROLE IN LIFTING THEIR SCHOOLS
AND LIFTING THE STUDENTS IN
THOSE SCHOOLS BECAUSE TOO MUCH
POLITICS GETS IN THE MIDDLE OF
IT AND WHERE WE FOCUS AS ADULTS,
PUT CHILDREN FIRST, WE SEE
TREMENDOUS RESULTS.
AND THE PEOPLE OF THIS TOWN ARE
GOING TO RISE AND THEY NEED TO
BE INVOLVED.
THANK YOU.
[ APPLAUSE ]
>>FOR HALF A CENTURY, AS YOU
ALL KNOW, DETROIT WAS THE SYMBOL
OF AMERICA’S INDUSTRIAL MIGHT.
300,000 MANUFACTURING JOBS IN
THIS CITY.
AT LAST COUNT, THERE ARE NOW
FEWER THAN 30,000 MANUFACTURING
JOBS HERE AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT
RATE IN THIS CITY IS 11%.
TWICE THE NATIONAL AVERAGE.
SENATOR CRUZ, I KNOW THAT YOU
HAVE GENERAL PLANS FOR TAX
REFORM, BUT WHAT SPECIFICALLY
WOULD YOU DO TO BRING
MANUFACTURING JOBS BACK TO
AMERICA AND TRAIN RESIDENTS OF
CITIES LIKE DETROIT TO DO THOSE
JOBS?
>>WELL, CHRIS, THANK YOU FOR
THAT QUESTION.
LET ME START BY OBSERVING THAT
DETROIT IS A GREAT CITY WITH A
MAGNIFICENT LEGACY THAT HAS BEEN
UTTERLY DECIMATED BY 60 YEARS OF
FAILED LEFT-WING POLICY.
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
HENRY FORD REVOLUTIONIZED
AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING AND
BROUGHT AUTOMOBILES TO THE
MIDDLE CLASS.
DURING WORLD WAR II, DETROIT
PROVIDED, FUNDED THE ARSENALS OF
DEMOCRACY TO HELP US WIN WORLD
WAR II.
IN THE 1960s, DETROIT WAS THE
SILICON VALLEY OF AMERICA.
IT HAD A POPULATION OF 2 MILLION
PEOPLE.
HAD THE HIGHEST PER CAPITA
INCOME IN THE COUNTRY.
AND THEN FOR 50 YEARS, LEFT-WING
DEMOCRATS HAVE PURSUED
DESTRUCTIVE TAX POLICIES, WEAK
CRIME POLICIES AND HAVE DRIVEN
THE CITIZENS OUT.
THIS CITY NOW HAS JUST 700,000
CITIZENS.
THERE ARE VACANT HOMES, ONE
AFTER THE OTHER AFTER THE OTHER.
CRIME HAS BEEN RAMPANT.
AND IT IS AN OUTRAGE.
LET ME SAY TO FOLKS IN THE
MEDIA, THAT IS A STORY THAT THE
MEDIA OUGHT TO BE TELLING OVER
AND OVER AGAIN, THE DESTRUCTION
OF LEFT-WING POLICY AND THE
MILLIONS WHO HAVE HURT BECAUSE
OF IT.
>>I WAS GOING TO SAY, I’LL GIVE
YOU 30 SECONDS TO TRY TO ANSWER
MY QUESTION.
WHAT SPECIFICALLY WOULD YOU DO
TO BRING MANUFACTURING JOBS BACK
TO DETROIT AND TO TRAIN THE
RESIDENTS HERE TO DO THOSE JOBS?
>>THE WAY YOU BRING
MANUFACTURING BACK TO AMERICA,
NUMBER ONE, YOU LIFT THE
REGULATIONS.
AS PRESIDENT, I WILL REPEAL
OBAMACARE, THE BIGGEST JOB
KILLER IN AMERICA.
I WILL PULL BACK THE FEDERAL
REGULATORS, THE EPA AND ALL THE
REGULATORS THAT ARE KILLING
SMALL BUSINESSES AND
MANUFACTURING.
AND MY TAX PLAN, WHICH IS A
VERY, VERY DETAILED PLAN ON THE
WEBSITE, TEDCRUZ.ORG, IS WHAT’S
CALLED BORDER ADJUSTABLE.
WE GET RID OF THE CORPORATE
INCOME TAX AND THE DEATH TASK
AND THE OBAMACARE TAXES AND
PAYROLL TAX AND REPLACE IT WITH
A 16% BUSINESS FLAT TAX THAT IS
BORDER ADJUSTABLE WHICH MEANS
ALL EXPORTS ARE ENTIRELY TAX
FREE AND ALL IMPORTS PAY THE 16%
BUSINESS FLAT TAX.
THAT’S A 32% DIFFERENTIAL.
WHAT THAT WILL DO, CHRIS, IS
BRING MILLIONS OF MANUFACTURING
JOBS BACK TO THIS COUNTRY, BRING
THE STEEL INDUSTRY BACK TO THIS
COUNTRY, CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT
WHERE WE COMPETE ON A FAIR AND
LEVEL PLAYING FIELD, AMERICAN
INGENUITY CAN BEAT ANYONE, BUT
RIGHT NOW THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
ISN’T GIVING US A LEVEL PLAYING
FIELD.
>>THANK YOU, SENATOR.
GENTLEMEN, THE NEXT SERIES OF
QUESTIONS WILL BE ON SOCIAL
ISSUES.
GOVERNOR KASICH, THE LAST
DEBATE, YOU WERE ASKED A
QUESTION ABOUT RELIGIOUS
LIBERTY, A HYPOTHETICAL
SITUATION WHERE A SAME SEX
COUPLE APPROACHES A CUPCAKE
MAKER TO DO THEIR WEDDING.
HERE’S WHAT YOU SAID.
>>BUSINESS OF SELLING THINGS,
IF YOU’RE NOT GOING TO SELL TO
SOMEBODY YOU DON’T AGREE WITH,
TODAY I’M NOT GOING TO SELL TO
SOMEBODY WHO’S GAY, TOMORROW
MAYBE I WON’T SELL TO SOMEBODY
WHO’S DIVORCED.
>>GOVERNOR, SOME FAITH LEADERS
GOT NERVOUS ABOUT THAT ANSWER.
DO GAY MARRIAGE DISSENTERS HAVE
RIGHTS?
>>WELL, LOOK, FIRST OF ALL, I
TRY TO BE A MAN OF FAITH EVERY
DAY AS BEST AS I CAN, AND I TRY
TO FOCUS IN MY FAITH ON THE DOS
AND I THINK THE DON’TS WILL TAKE
CARE OF THEMSELVES ONCE I GET
THE DOS RIGHT, HUMILITY, LOVING
MY ENEMY, CARING FOR MY
NEIGHBOR.
SECONDLY, LOOK, YOU’RE IN THE
COMMERCE BUSINESS, YOU WANT TO
SELL SOMEBODY A CUPCAKE, GREAT.
OKAY?
NOW IF THEY ASK YOU TO
PARTICIPATE IN SOMETHING YOU
REALLY DON’T LIKE, THAT’S A
WHOLE OTHER ISSUE.
OKAY?
ANOTHER ISSUE.
HERE’S WHAT I’D LIKE TO SEE
HAPPEN.
THE SUPREME COURT RULED, I DON’T
AGREE WITH THE RULING.
I’M OF FAVOR OF MARRIAGE
BETWEEN, TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE, A
MAN AND A WOMAN.
WHO I HOPE IS GOING TO HAPPEN
AFTER THE SUPREME COURT RULING
IS THINGS SETTLE DOWN.
IF YOU GO TO A PHOTOGRAPHER TO
TAKE PICTURES AT YOUR WEDDING,
SAY I’D RATHER NOT DO IT, FIND
ANOTHER PHOTOGRAPHER, DON’T SUE
THEM IN COURT.
YOU KNOW WHAT, THE PROBLEM IS —
[ APPLAUSE ]
— IN OUR COUNTRY, IN OUR
COUNTRY, WE NEED TO LEARN TO
RESPECT EACH OTHER AND BE A
LITTLE BIT MORE TOLERANT FOR ONE
ANOTHER, AND AT THE END OF THE
DAY, DON’T GO TO COURT.
CAN’T WE HAVE COMMON SENSE IN
AMERICA?
THAT’S THE WAY IT USED TO BE.
AND THERE WAS A BOOK WRITTEN
CALLED “THE DEATH OF COMMON
SENSE.”
WE NEED TO BRING IT BACK, BUT AT
THE END OF THE DAY, IF SOMEBODY
IS BEING PRESSURED TO
PARTICIPATE IN SOMETHING THAT IS
AGAINST THEIR DEEPLY-HELD
RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, THEN WE’RE
GOING TO HAVE TO THINK ABOUT
DEALING WITH THE LAW.
YOU KNOW WHAT, I’D RATHER PEOPLE
FIGURE THIS OUT WITHOUT HAVING
TO PUT ANOTHER LAW IN THE BOOKS
AND HAVE MORE ARGUMENTS IN THIS
COUNTRY.
WHY DON’T WE COME TOGETHER AS A
COUNTRY, RESPECT ONE ANOTHER,
LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND LIFT THIS
COUNTRY?
I THINK THAT’S WHAT PEOPLE WANT.
SO —
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
THANKS FOR ASKING.
>>SENATOR CRUZ, THE U.S.
SUPREME COURT OBVIOUSLY DECLARED
SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LEGAL IN ALL
50 STATES, A DECISION YOU HAVE
CRITICIZED.
GIVEN THE CURRENT STATUS OF THE
LAW, DO YOU BELIEVE A GAY COUPLE
SHOULD BE ABLE TO ADOPT?
>>WELL, LISTEN, ADOPTION IS
DECIDED AT THE STATE LEVEL AND I
AM A BELIEVER IN THE TENTH
AMENDMENT IN THE CONSTITUTION, I
WOULD LEAVE THE QUESTION OF
MARRIAGE TO THE STATES, I WOULD
LEAVE THE QUESTION OF ADOPTION
TO THE STATES.
THAT’S THE WAY IT’S BEEN FOR TWO
CENTURIES OF OUR NATION’S
HISTORY UNTIL FIVE UNELECTED
JUDGES IN AN ILLEGITIMATE AND
WRONG DECISION DECIDED TO SEIZE
THE AUTHORITY OVER MARRIAGE AND
WRONGFULLY TEAR DOWN THE
MARRIAGE LAWS OF ALL 50 STATES.
NOW, CONNECTED TO THIS IS THE
QUESTION OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.
AT THE LAST DEBATE, ONE OF MY
COLLEAGUES ON THIS STAGE SAID ON
THE QUESTION OF RELIGIOUS
LIBERTY AND SUPREME COURT
NOMINEES THAT HE’D BE WILLING TO
COMPROMISE AND NEGOTIATE.
I CAN TELL YOU, FOR ME, THERE
ARE AREAS THAT WE SHOULD
COMPROMISE ON.
MARGINAL TAX RATES.
WE CAN REACH A MIDDLE GROUND ON.
WHEN IT COMES TO CORE PRINCIPLES
AND CONVICTIONS, WHEN IT COMES
TO THE CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF
RIGHT, I CAN TELL THE MEN AND
WOMEN AT HOME I WILL NEVER
COMPROMISE AWAY YOUR RELIGIOUS
LIBERTY.
[ APPLAUSE ]
AND FOR ME, BRET, RELIGIOUS
LIBERTY HAS BEEN A LIFELONG
PASSION.
I’VE SPENT TWO DECADES DEFENDING
RELIGIOUS LIBERTY INCLUDING
DEFENDING THE TEN COMMANDMENTS
BEFORE THE U.S. SUPREME COURT
AND WINNING.
DEFENDING THE PLEDGE OF
ALLEGIANCE BEFORE THE SUPREME
COURT AND WINNING.
AND DEFENDING THE MOJAVE DESERT
VETERANS MEMORIAL, A LONE WHITE
LATIN CROSS THAT WAS ERECTED TO
HONOR THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO GAVE
THEIR LIVES IN WORLD WAR I.
I REPRESENTED 3 MILLION VETERANS
DEFENDING THAT MEMORIAL AND WON
5-4.
>>THANK YOU.
SENATOR CRUZ DEFINITELY AVOIDED
SAYING YOUR NAME, MR. TRUMP, BUT
I THINK HE WAS REFERRING TO YOU
AND YOUR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY
ANSWER.
WOULD YOU LIKE TO RESPOND?
>>I HAVE NOTHING TO SAY.
I MEAN, GENERALLY SPEAKING I
AGREE WITH WHAT HE SAID.
I WOULD HAVE CERTAINLY HAVE
RATHER LEFT IT TO THE STATES.
I WAS ALWAYS IN — I WAS VERY
SURPRISED WHEN THEY CAME UP WITH
THAT DECISION.
I WOULD HAVE CERTAINLY — I
WOULD HAVE PREFERRED HAD IT BEEN
LEFT TO THE STATES AND I THINK
MOST PEOPLE WOULD HAVE PREFERRED
THAT.
>>SENATOR RUBIO, THE LATE
SUPREME COURT JUSTICE ANTONIN
SCALIA, A CONSERVATIVE ICON
OBVIOUSLY, POINTED OUT IN THE
UNITED STATES VERSUS HELL RERKS
THAT LIKE MOST RIGHTS THE SECOND
AMENDMENT RIGHT IS NOT
UNLIMITED.
FIRST AMENDMENT DOESN’T ALLOW
YOU TO TWO
YOU TO TW
YOU TO GO
YOU TO GO I
YOU TO GO INT
YOU TO GO INTO
YOU TO GO INTO A
YOU TO GO INTO A T
YOU TO GO INTO A THE
YOU TO GO INTO A THEAT
YOU TO GO INTO A THEATER
YOU TO GO INTO A THEATER A
YOU TO GO INTO A THEATER AND
YELL FIRE.
DO YOU AGREE WITH JUSTICE
SCALIA, WHAT LIMITS WOULD YOU’D
DRAW AROUND THE SECOND
AMENDMENT?
>>AS FEW AS POSSIBLE.
THE SECOND AMENDMENT AS I SAID
BEFORE IS NOT A SUGGESTION.
IT’S THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT OF
EVERY AMERICAN TO PROTECT
THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES.
IT IS A RIGHT THAT — IT IS THE
SECOND AMENDMENT FOR A REASON.
IT IS RIGHT AFTER THE DEFENSE OF
THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR A
REASON.
CLEARLY THE FOUNDERS OF OUR
NATION UNDERSTOOD AND THE
FRAMERS OF THE CONSTITUTION
UNDERSTOOD THAT YOU CANNOT HAVE
LIFE AND YOU CANNOT HAVE LIBERTY
AND CANNOT PURSUE HAPPINESS IF
YOU ARE NOT SAFE.
AND THE SECOND AMENDMENT WHEN
PEOPLE TALK ABOUT GUN LAWS, WHAT
THEY NEED TO REALIZE IS
CRIMINALS DON’T FOLLOW GUN LAWS.
THEY’RE CRIMINALS.
BY DEFINITION, THEY IGNORE THE
LAW.
BUT THE GUN RIGHTS OF AMERICANS,
IF YOU ARE TALKING TO A
LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN AND A GUN
OWNER LIKE MYSELF, IF YOU PASS A
LAW, I WILL KNOLL WHATEVER THE
LAW IS.
A CRIMINAL WILL NOT DO IT.
THEY WILL CONTINUE TO PURSUE
THESE GUNS ON THE BLACK MARKET
WHERE THEY THEN GO OUT AND
COMMIT CRIMES AND STEAL GUNS
FROM EACH OTHER.
GUN LAWS ARE NOT EFFECTIVE.
THEY SIMPLY DO NOT PROVIDE FOR
SAFETY BUT THEY DO, HOWEVER,
ENSURE THAT LAW-ABIDING PEOPLE
DON’T HAVE ACCESS TO WEAPONS TO
PROTECT THEMSELVES AND GUNS TO
PROTECT THEMSELVES, BUT
CRIMINALS ALWAYS WILL BE WELL
ARMED.
THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THE LAW.
THEY DON’T FOLLOW THE LAW.
WE WILL PROTECT THE SECOND
AMENDMENT WHEN I’M PRESIDENT OF
THE UNITED STATES.
>>MR. TRUMP, YOU WERE ONCE A
SUPPORTER OF A WEAPONS BAN, SO
DO YOU THINK THERE SHOULD BE ANY
RESTRICTIONS ON THE SECOND
AMENDMENT?
>>NO, I’M A BIG DEFENDER OF THE
SECOND AMENDMENT.
IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT’S HAPPENED,
WHETHER IT’S IN CALIFORNIA WHERE
YOU HAD THE 14 PEOPLE KILLED,
WHETHER IT’S IN PARIS, WHICH BY
THE WAY HAS THE TOUGHEST GUN
LAWS IN THE WORLD AND 130 PEOPLE
KILLED.
MANY, MANY PEOPLE IN THE
HOSPITAL.
GRAVELY INJURED.
THEY WILL BE DYING.
MANY PEOPLE WILL BE DYING IN
ADDITION.
IF WE HAD GUNS OR IF THEY HAD
GUNS ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE
ROOM WITH THE BULLETS GOING IN
THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION, YOU
WOULD NOT HAVE HAD 130 PEOPLE
KILLED.
THAT I CAN TELL YOU RIGHT NOW.
SO I’M A VERY, VERY BIG
SUPPORTER OF THE SECOND
AMENDMENT.
>>BUT IN 2000, YOU WROTE IN
YOUR BOOK, I GENERALLY OPPOSE
GUN CONTROL BUT I SUPPORT THE
BAN ON ASSAULT WEAPONS.
>>I DON’T SUPPORT IT ANYMORE.
I DO NOT SUPPORT THE BAN ON
ASSAULT.
>>SENATOR CRUZ?
ANY LIMITS TO THE SECOND
AMENDMENT?
>>WELL, LISTEN.
UNLIKE DONALD, I WOULD NOT
SUPPORT BANNING FIREARMS.
IN THAT INSTANCE, BILL CLINTON
BANNED MANY OF THE MOST POPULAR
FIREARMS IN AMERICA.
BY THE WAY, THE STUDY SHOWED
THAT BAN DID NOTHING TO REDUCE
VIOLENT CRIME BUT TOOK AWAY THE
SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OF
LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.
LET ME POINT OUT, IT IS EASY FOR
POLITICAL CANDIDATES TO HAVE
RHETORIC AND SAY I SUPPORT THE
SECOND AMENDMENT.
YOU CANNOT SAY THAT AND AT THE
SAME TIME SAY WHAT DONALD JUST
SAID WHICH IS THAT ON THE
QUESTION OF SUPREME COURT
NOMINEES HE WANTS TO COMPROMISE
AND REACH A MIDDLE GROUND WITH
HARRY REID AND CHUCK SCHUMER.
THAT’S HA
THAT’S H
THAT’S WH
THAT’S WHAT
THAT’S WHAT H
THAT’S WHAT HE
THAT’S WHAT HE S
THAT’S WHAT HE SAI
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID I
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID IN
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID IN T
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID IN THE
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID IN THE L
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID IN THE LAS
THAT’S WHAT HE SAID IN THE LAST
DEBATE.
>>I DID NOT SAY THAT.
>>HARRY REID AND CHUCK SCHUMER
SIGN OFF ON —
>>I DID NOT SAY THAT.
>>HARRY REID AND CHUCK SCHUMER
ARE BOTH DEMOCRATS MR. TRUMP HAS
WRITTEN CHECKS TO REPEATEDLY.
ANY JUSTICE THAT THOSE TWO SIGN
OFF ON IS GOING TO BE A LEFT
WING JUDICIAL ACTIVIST WHO WILL
UNDERMINE RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND
WE’RE ONE VOTE AWAY FROM THE
HELLER DECISION BEING OVERTURNED
WHICH WOULD EFFECTIVELY ERASE
THE SECOND OF AMENDMENT FROM THE
BILL OF RIGHTS.
IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE SECOND
AMENDMENT, YOU NEED TO ASK WHO
ON THIS STAGE DO YOU KNOW WILL
APPOINT PRINCIPLED CONSTITUTION
APPOINT PRINCIPLED CONSTITUTIO
CONSTITUTIONALISTS TO THE COURT
AND NOT CUT A DEAL WITH YOUR
SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS?
>>MR. TRUMP, SO WE’RE LISTENING
TO THE ALL TALK, NO ACTION
POLITICIAN AND HE WAS THE
PRIMARY SUPPORTER OF JOHN
ROBERTS WHO GAVE US —
>>FLAT-OUT WRONG.
>>NO, IT’S NOT.
YOU TAKE A LOOK.
HE WAS THE PRIMARY SUPPORTER.
HE PUSHED JOHN ROBERTS AND
PUSHED HIM AND PUSHED HIM AND
BUSH ULTIMATELY APPOINTED HIM.
HE GOT APPOINTED.
AND WHEN IT CAME HIS TIME TO
RAISE HIS HAND AND KILL
OBAMACARE, NOT ONCE, BUT TWICE,
HE LET US DOWN AND HE DID THE
WRONG THING.
THIS IS THE MAN THAT WAS THE
PRIMARY SUPPORTER AND YOU CAN
READ LAW JOURNAL, READ WHATEVER
YOU WANT TO READ, I’VE READ
PLENTY OF IT.
THERE WAS NO STRONGER SUPPORTER
OF JOHN ROBERTS THAN HIM.
AND IT WAS A VERY, VERY BIG
MISTAKE.
>>QUICKLY, SENATOR CRUZ.
>>YOU KNOW, DONALD HAS A
TENUOUS RELATIONSHIP WITH THE
TRUTH.
I WROTE ONE OP-PED SUPPORTING
PRESIDENT BUSH’S NOMINATION
AFTER HE MADE IT.
I WOULD NOT HAVE MADE THAT
NOMINATION.
LET ME POINT OUT —
>>THAT IS NOT WHAT YOU SAID —
>>DONALD, PLEASE, I KNOW IT’S
HARD NOT TO INTERRUPT.
TRY.
>>IT’S NOT WHAT YOU SAID IN THE
OP-PED.
>>BREATHE, BREATHE, BREATHE.
>>I AM, TED.
>>YOU CAN DO IT.
YOU CAN BREATHE.
I KNOW IT’S HARD.
BUT JUST —
>>WHEN THEY’RE DONE WITH THE
YOGA, CAN I ANSWER A QUESTION?
>>YOU CANNOT —
[ APPLAUSE ]
>>I REALLY HOPE WE DON’T SEE
YOGA ON THIS STAGE.
>>HE’S VERY FLEXIBLE, SO YOU
NEVER KNOW.
[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
>>BUT YOU CANNOT, IN FACT, CARE
ABOUT CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT
JUSTICES AND SUPPORT JIMMY
CARTER FOR PRESIDENT.
YOU CANNOT CARE ABOUT
CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT
JUSTICES AND SUPPORT JOHN KERRY
FOR PRESIDENT AS DONALD DID.
YOU CANNOT CARE ABOUT
CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT
JUSTICES AND SUPPORT HARRY REID
FOR SENATE MAJORITY LEADER AND
YOU CANNOT CARE ABOUT
CONSERVATIVE SUPREME COURT
JUSTICES AND WRITE FOUR CHECKS
TO HILLARY CLINTON FOR HER TO BE
PRESIDENT IF YOU CARE AT ALL
ABOUT THE SECOND AMENDMENT OR
RELIGIOUS LIBERTY OR ANYTHING
ELSE.
>>GENTLEMEN, WE’RE GOING TO
MOVE ON.
THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT MORE
POLICY QUESTIONS COMING UP.
>>AND COMING UP, THE CANDIDATES
TACKLE FOREIGN POLICY.
FIRST, DURING THE COMMERCIAL
BREAK, JOIN US FOR FACEBOOK LIVE

TONIGHT’S DEBATE IN THE COMMENT

100 thoughts on “Part 5 of the Fox News GOP presidential debate in Detroit”

  • they all talk about the same shit 8 years ago cruz and rubio sound like two little girl picking each other wow is this are the people want to be tr president of United States of America come on people even a blind person can fix this country this is all talk but no action this why this country is full of liars especially in the white house because

  • they all talk about the same shit 8 years ago cruz and rubio sound like two little girl picking each other wow is this are the people want to be tr president of United States of America come on people even a blind person can fix this country this is all talk but no action this why this country is full of liars especially in the white house because

  • Richard Willford says:

    One narcissist arsehole, one bigoted, lying car salesman, one Mr Perfect card-board cut-out and one John Kasich still trying to introduce himself to the American public. I’m not very impressed by the Democratic side of this election… BUT THIS!!!

    As a European, I’ve always respected and counted on America. But what is this? What have you turned into?! Three puerile IDIOTS and a failed Kasich campaign on stage, all behaving like 5-year-olds. And three incompetents posing as moderators, playing into crowd-pleasing TV entertainment. A jeering mob of an audience.

    Wrestling dramaturgy produced by Trump Entertainment. So embarrassing!

  • Why in the year 2016 are the Republican Party still being asked about gay marriage, no one cares, move on. The longer they bitch about this issue, the sooner the republicans will become irrelevant in the 21st century.

  • A real commander in chief would have send the Army Corps of (they are only)Engineers and set up a field water filtration system and redoing the entire water network getting ride of the LEAD.

  • hmmmm. maybe, just maybe, the war on drugs has something to do with Detroit turning to shit.  Just a possibility.  But yeah go ahead and blame democrats. Fuck Cruz

  • I am an illegal and i want Trump to win. I believe he is the only one who can turn aroud the economy. If he can bring all those jobs back from china, I mean all that money back, there will be so many job oportunities that Trump will change his mind again about his tough immigration policies. He will probably say: F*** them, let them stay. Someone needs to do the cleaning."

    Because, let me tell you my friends. The way the economy is right now, you won´t have to deport me, i will leave this country on my own.

  • I used to trust Trump, I guess it's over. Don't trust anyone is my new my theme
    But afterward, I thought about it, who on earth is 100% perfect? Everyone has a bright/dark side. At least Trump is very energetic and flexible…
    OK, Trump 2016!

  • We DO have laws to regulate firearms: The Gun Control Act of 1968 and The National Firearms Act of 1934. What we need is a DOJ who will coordinate with state and local jurisdictions to enforce the laws already on the books, instead of administrations that fail to enforce the laws and then claim they need more laws.

  • Rubio and Cruz are liars. The Flint water problem was orchestrated by yet another FAILED Republican governor who appointed a Republican Emergency Manager to replace the elected mayor, and knew all about the problem over a year before he did anything. Check out the FAILURES of conservative principles in Kansas under Sam Brownback and Bobby Jindal in Louisiana where they are now praying for relief. Detroit's failures had nothing to do with Liberal policies, but outsourcing promoted by Republican conservative policies. Everything you heard in this debate were lies built upon lies. Trump wanted to save $300 billion a year on Medicare drugs when the government only spends about $78 billion a year. The GOP wrecked the World economy 8 years ago and this debate showed just how out of touch they are and why they should never ever be allowed back in the White House!

  • Mike G U.S Army Veteran 15H/15T says:

    Haha this is the result of Americas declination and submission as by design by the individuals who control the money and created this system

  • this second amendment that Americans are obsessed with is crazy, ust ban all the guns and let the police do their job to protect people

  • "Do gay marriage dissenters have rights?" What the hell! You're asking, do the people who persecute others have the rights to do that. Shut the hell up. It's like, Do racists have rights to deny selling things to blacks?

  • This was another terrible job by Fox News.  The only goal they had was to destroy Trump rather than letting citizens understand the issues.

  • There is obviously no reasoning with someone that supports Trump. He has tapped into the anger and fear that a lot of people have. You cannot reason with those emotions. So believe what ever you want. Trying to talk and debate issues is something that no one can do anymore. It seems to slide into a insult contest or someone is a racist for their views anymore. A sad time truly in our Nation.

  • This debate is Kasich's best to date. We actually got to hear that he really does have a ton of experience and good ideas.

  • the robot pimp says:

    Kasich is quite impressive. He'd make a terrific republican president. Too bad republicans won't pick him. Damn they're stupid.

  • 09morningglory says:

    I'm watching this on a Saturday afternoon, as a comedy series replacement. BTW, I'm not American. Gosh, I'm having so much fun…. What a bunch of idiots. The guy on the right seems to only sane one, and the only one that has some logic in what he's saying.

  • People: if you are outraged by what happened in Flint, stop voting for Republicans who want to dismantle the EPA. It's now so underfunded it can hardly do its job of protecting our health and water from industries that put profit before people.

  • Marco looks like he been drinking Flint water.

    Brent: "What would you do to bring manufacturing jobs back to Detroit."
    Ted: "Brent, let me thank you for that question. Let me start by changing the subject. This places has been fucked for 50 years."

  • This party is so screwed up. They're saying – among other things – that we should be tolerant of the intolerant. At long last, the religious right is finally losing control of this party. It needs to move back to the middle and become a big tent party once again. With the feminist S.J.W.s on the rise on our college campuses, controlling too many of our laws, we need a competent alternative in this country. Hmm?

  • Abdullah Syed says:

    The Second Amendment is bullshit, our founding fathers were human. SLAVERY WAS WRITTEN INTO THE CONSTITUTION, and African Americans were considered 3/5th of a Person. There were more mass shootings in 2015, than the number of days in the year. Thousands of lives could have been saved with a complete ban on guns.

  • Paul Osterberg says:

    Drug tests. A nice little full spectrum drug test. We need to know just what kind of drug soup these clown's are on. Don't agree? Tell me why.

    Here is the republican plan: 1) cut taxes to the rich altogether, 2) send your ass to Iraq for Gulf War 3 – the Great Ground War, 3) keep you there for 30 years, 4) cut social security, medicare, medicaid, unemployment insurance, and the ACA, 5) dispense with police, fire department, garbage collection unless you pay a monthly bill to a privately owned company, 6) get rid of free public school, 7) replace 50% of you with a robot, a computer, an H1A worker, or automation, 8) the private name for that plan is THE SOUTHERN SHARECROPPER MODEL! Doubt me? Read General David Patraeus' book, COUNTERINSURGENCY FM 3-24 to find how much sunshine the republican party is pumping up your ass in reference to Gulf Oil War 3. Also, read THE OCCUPATIONAL OUTLOOKS HANDBOOK, and THE FUTURE OF EMPLOYMENT, by Frey & Osborne. Get informed before you vote for any of the four stooges of presidential politics.

    one of the 2 male moderators, the one who is asking the first question in this video, has a pretty small nose, this nose is much to small for his fac e and makes it even look fatter!

  • Barton Warren says:

    Very liberal here! However, I vote for the candidates with little regard to their political party and, instead, vote for them because of their political views. So, I watch both democrat AND republican debates.. But, honestly I'd rather Trump win than Cruz. Cruz is always the worst lol. If one of these men- realistically speaking- wins the presidency, I would rather it be Trump..
    By the way, I'm for Bernie Sanders all the way and he is my man!

  • "Let's leave this issue to the states." Okay, let's let interracial marriage and divorce to the states. These are stupid peeps.

  • Crazy how Ole Ted does his best to get 2 bells. Pretty convenient to get asked questions that he can give a history lesson instead of a direct answer. Just saying. Lying Ted!

  • Valkyrie Sardo says:

    It is also interesting to note that Ford was as anti-semite that supported the Nazi war effort by constructing automotive factories on German soil and employing forced labor from concentration camps during WWII.

  • Valkyrie Sardo says:

    Marriage is a legal contract. The religious definition is optional in a secular nation where there is freedom of religion and freedom FROM religion.

  • Alternative Universe Cuts says:

    16:05 Wow Ted has a bad poker face. Jim carrey was more convincing in Liar Liar. Love the laugh and then the very worried face and the big gulp, lol.
