Democratic Debate Confronts A Loaded Question: 'Can A Woman Win Against Trump?'

Description

Six Democratic presidential candidates debated on Tuesday night in Iowa, less than three weeks before the state's first-in-the-nation caucuses.

It came up early: can a woman win? The candidates agreed that the answer is yes after Bernie Sanders denied Elizabeth Warren's accusation that he told her a woman couldn't win.

And as the candidates debated trade, Sanders stood out as the only opponent of USMCA, the replacement for NAFTA.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, political correspondents Scott Detrow and Asma Khalid, and political reporter Danielle Kurtzleben.

Elizabeth Warren has a track record of claiming victimhood status only to be called out on it later on and proven wrong. The biggest example is when she claimed she was fired from a job because she was pregnant. Not only do we have the records disproving that, we even have her on camera many years ago countering this claim.
