Trump Slams Dems for Supporting Free Healthcare for Illegal Aliens: ‘How About Taking Care of Americans First?’


President Donald Trump weighed in on night two of the first 2020 Democratic primary debates, slamming Democratic hopefuls on stage for supporting free healthcare for illegal immigrants.

Debate moderator and “Today” show co-host Savannah Guthrie asked the candidates on stage for a show of hands whether their healthcare plans “would provide coverage for undocumented immigrants.”

All 10 candidates, including, of course, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, California Sen. Kamala Harris, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, raised their hands.

Guthrie then asked Buttigieg why he supported the idea. He replied, “Because our country is healthier when everybody is healthier.”

That’s interesting, all things considered.

Trump criticized the Democratic candidates, asking, “How about taking care of American Citizens first!?”

“All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare,” the President tweetedOpens a New Window.. “How about taking care of American Citizens first!? That’s the end of that race!”
