Milwaukee GOP Debate on Fox Business, November 10, 2015: Highlights
On the November 10 GOP debate, Trump made statements regarding what he will do if he becomes the United States President, as well as the current state of things. Unfortunately, Trump wasn’t given nearly as much speaking time as those who interrupted and fought for the spotlight. So, for the purpose of keeping Trump Supporters tuned in specifically on Donald Trump’s position, we will place focus mostly on Trump’s statements.
ON THE BORDER
Trump moment: “We have no choice but to build the wall. Dwight Eisenhower…. he moved 1.5 million illegal immigrants out of this country. Moved them way south… They never came back….We have no choice.”
Showing Respect for Other Candidates on Tax Codes
We all have a different tax code… Each one of those tax plans is better than the mess we have right now.”
International Trade Agreement
“The TPP is a horrible deal… it’s designed for China to come in through the back door and take advantage of everyone. I’d rather make individual deals with individual countries…. We’re losing over 500 billion dollars imbalance with China…. I love trade… but we need smart people making the deals.. China and India…take advantage through currency manipulation. Currency manipulation is the single great weapon.”
“If Putin wants to go and knock the hell out of ISIS, I support him. Why are we always doing the work? We owe 19 trillion… a country going to hell… We have to start investing money in our country.”
Bush interrupts and says, “We have to lead the world. We have to play a role in this…before its too late.”
Trump: “No one even knows who the rebels are. We’re giving hundreds of millions of dollars to these people. We don’t even know who they are. We should’ve kept the oil.” Trump then stated that money should’ve been given to wounded veterans.
Fiorina interrupts and disagrees, saying we shouldn’t be speaking to Putin right now. She states in a snarky manner that she has spoken to him and it was not in a green room (after Trump stated he spoke to Putin in a green room). Fiorina waited for a positive reaction from the audience, and then said we must have a no fly zone in Syria. “We must have the strongest military on the face of the planet and everyone has to know it.” She claimed she would do multiple things right under Putin’s nose.
Rubio called Putin a “gangster” and says ISIS is “coming for us… They hate us. We better take this risk seriously.”
Kasich received an excessive amount of speaking time, and Cruz spoke up often. Many people on social media complained that this took away from the other candidates.
Trump reaffirmed that he wants to do something very special with our country, and that the United States has the ability to be better than it’s ever been before.
Social Media Real Time Reaction
Trump didn’t have enough speaking time. Diehard Trump fans are still in full support and Trump has over 4.1 million followers on Facebook. As Carson has climbed his way up the ranks in the poll numbers, Trump leads in GOP vote in several states, as shown in various polls.
The GOP debate should be on YouTube shortly, for those who missed it.
