Frontrunner Sanders under attack in Democratic Party debate
The Democratic candidates for president met for the party’s 10th – and perhaps most consequential – debate of the 2020 primary season. 

 

US Senator Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, faced a torrent of attacks from his rivals on Tuesday night, during a high-stakes debate that could be their final prime-time opportunity to change the momentum of the campaign.

Billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg seized on reports that Russia was interfering in the 2020 presidential election to help Sanders.

Bloomberg claimed both US President Donald Trump and Russia President Vladimir Putin shared the belief that Sanders would be the weakest Democratic rival for the Republican incumbent.

“Vladimir Putin thinks Donald Trump should be president of the United States and that’s why Russia is helping you get [in], so you lose to him,” Bloomberg said.

Sanders shot back, “Hey, Mr Putin, if I’m president of the United States, trust me you’re not going to interfere in any more American elections.'”

Last week, Sanders acknowledged that he had been briefed by intelligence officials who said that Russia is attempting to interfere in the elections to benefit him.
