Trump 'bored' with Democratic debate

United States President Donald Trump appeared unimpressed with the first Democratic debate that featured 10 presidential candidates who talked about a number of issues. "Boring!" Trump tweeted as he was heading to Japan for the G20 summit where he will meet Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

His younger son Eric Trump echoed the sentiment when he tweeted "I'm already bored" ten minutes into the debate.

Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke engaged in the first confrontation of the night over their stances on private health insurance. De Blasio believes that private insurance "is not helping for tens of millions of Americans" while O'Rourke responded that "for those for whom it’s not working they can choose Medicare."

O'Rourke also took the opportunity to show off his knowledge of Spanish when he talked about tax rates. "We need to include each person in the success of this economy. But if we want to do that, we need to include each person in our democracy. Each voter, we need the representation, and each voice, we must listen to," he said in Spanish, making some grammatical errors in the process. His insistence on Spanish caused an uproar among some Twitter users who reminded him that he is running for the president of the United States and not Mexico.
