  • Race to Presidency: Responses to Brussels attacks | The Current
    statements about the attacks It s unrealistic to say we re going to completely shut down our borders to everyone That would stop commerce for example and that s not in anybody s interest This is a time for us to reaffirm our solidarity with our European friends and allies individually and through NATO Our country s most experienced and bravest military leaders will tell you that torture is not effective It does put our own soldiers and increasingly our civilians at risk They don t need to resort to torture Hillary Clinton in an interview with TODAY on March 22 It s probably why I m number one in the polls We have to have strong borders we have to be very vigilant and careful of who we allow into our country Uh I know Brussels well and Brussels is a total mess I would be very very tough on the borders and not allow certain people into this country without absolute perfect documentation Donald Trump in an interview with TODAY on March 22 I think people get afraid and for good reasons ISIS is a disgusting barbaric organization We ve seen what they ve done in Paris what they ve done in Brussels People are afraid of an attack in the U S but I think what we have to understand is we re not going to undermine the Constitution of the United States of America in order to effectively destroy ISIS At the end of the day we cannot allow the Trumps of the world to use these incidents to attack all of the Muslim people in the world That is unfair To imply that if somebody is a Muslim they re a terrorist that is an outrageous statement Bernie Sanders in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel on March 22 The wave of terror that has been unleashed in Europe and elsewhere around the world are attacks against our very way of life and against the democratic values upon which our political systems have been built We and all our allies must rededicate ourselves to these values of freedom and human rights We must strengthen our alliances as our way of life and the international system that has been built on our common values since the end of the Second World War comes under challenge from these and other actors of evil John Kasich in a statement released on March 22 Make no mistake these terror attacks are no isolated incidents They are just the latest in a string of coordinated attacks by radical Islamic terrorists perpetrated by those who are waging war against all who do not accept their extreme strain of Islam Radical Islam is at war with us For over seven years we have had a president who refuses to acknowledge this reality And the truth is we can never hope to defeat this evil so long as we refuse to even name it That ends on January 20 2017 when I am sworn

  • Race to Presidency: Understanding the primary elections | The Current
    delegates for conventions are conducted by each U S state beginning the January before the next president is to be inaugurated After the people of each state cast their ballots for the candidates they want to see in the general election the states determine how many delegates will be allocated to each presidential candidate The Democratic Party uses a proportional system in determining the number of delegates So basically the more votes a candidate gets the more delegates a candidate gets The Republican party on the other hand uses a winner takes all system If a candidate gets the majority of the votes all the delegates for the state are appointed to that candidate To sum it up the primaries allow voters to tell the Democratic and Republican parties who they should nominate for the general election in November What are delegates Delegates are the people who support presidential candidates They re usually party activists and local and state politicians who are nominated by their respective states to attend the Democratic and Republican national conventions in the summer before the general election to help decide the parties official nominees for the election Each state has a specific number of delegates based on population and congressional districts Additional delegates are awarded to states based on rules set forth by the Democratic and Republican parties What are super delegates The total delegates per state are comprised of pledged and unpledged delegates While pledged delegates are those who support a particular candidate at the convention which is decided upon after the primaries while unpledged delegates are not bound to particular candidates and are decided upon outside of the primary elections Many super delegates are political leaders selected by their respective parties These delegates make up 1 5 of the of the total delegates at the Democratic National Convention meaning that 1 5 of the party s delegates can select who they want for the nomination regardless of the primary results for their respective states Out of the 2 470 total delegates for the Republican National Convention there are 437 unpledged delegates meaning that about 17 percent of the delegates can select who they want for the nomination What happens if no candidate reaches the required number of delegates for nomination Democratic presidential candidates need 3 823 delegates to win the nomination and Republican candidates need 1 237 delegates to win the nomination If no candidates receive these numbers of delegates prior to their respective parties conventions then a contested convention will be held In this case all pledged candidates are able to re decide their nominations Votes are re casted at the national convention until a candidate wins the majority of the delegates votes and therefore receives the nominations However many Democratic presidential candidates personally select their delegates so even though delegates are technically able to re decide their vote they are unlikely to do so unless their candidate releases them from the relationship In the case for Republican party delegates are not

    with the Cuban government It s not just a communist dictatorship it is an Anti American communist dictatorship The Cuban government three years ago helped North Korea evade U S sanctions They were caught trying to sell missile parts to North Korea but nothing happened The Cuban government today harbors hundreds of fugitives of American judicial Medicare fraud there are people there who have stolen your money Marco Rubio on if he would visit Cuba as president o In 2013 the United Nations Security Council filed economic sanctions against North Korea after the country conducted its third underground nuclear test on Feb 12 After this sanction passed unanimously Cuba and Singapore organized illegal shipments of Cuban fighter jets and missile parts to North Korea as reported by Al Jazeera Included in the shipment were instructions on how to load and conceal the shipment and how to make false statements to customs officers in Panama o A year long investigation by the Sun Sentinel found that Cubans are legally permitted to enter the U S and return to Cuba without visas or background checks of their criminal histories Investigators found that Cuban criminals had staged car accidents for insurance fraud hijacked trucks sold Medicare numbers and wired money through Western Union o In one case it was found that a Cuban scam artist sent millions of dollars to Cuba allowing the government to seize 200 000 of that sum o Cubans are allowed to come and go so easily because of their refugee status once they come to the country they are automatically considered political refugees and can receive welfare food stamps and more If they stay in the U S for a year and a day they receive a green card o VERDICT True And if you look at unemployment with African American youth it s 58 percent 59 percent Probably even higher than that If you take African Americans in prime age 30 40 45 even 50 their numbers are not comparable to what white men or women in business are It s not good Donald Trump on small businesses o According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics as of Jan 2016 the unemployment rate for black or African American youth aged 16 to 19 years old was 25 2 percent The unemployment rate for black or African American adults was 8 8 percent as of Jan 2016 o The unemployment rate for white youth aged 16 to 19 years old was 14 4 percent and the rate for white adults was 4 3 percent o VERDICT The general idea was correct but the numbers were wrong While Trump was correct in saying that the numbers are not comparable to what white men or women in business are his statistics were significantly inaccurate You know I ve spent 18 years on the board of Kellogg s 16 years on the board of Costco learned a tremendous amount about business both domestically and internationally and a lot of things that
