‘Something is wrong with the system’: Sen. Cory Booker on ‘barriers’ in 2020 race | ABC News
Senator Cory Booker from Iowa this morning, I said I heard you listen to Nate silver right there. This week of, she started her first rally race, an awful lot of money early on perform pretty well in the early debates and only fell back when she stumbled in the campaign. So what is it about the system that caused her campaign to fail? What compared to Kennedy’s John Kerry, pulling like her at 4 % John Kerry pulled out all of his the other campaign places pulled it all in Iowa, just like Kamala Harris John Kerry had problems in his campaign has campaign but himself $ 5000000 popping the influence of Big money in politics never stopped her campaign because of the campaign, Finance rules and the fact that she couldn’t do what we see billionaires doing in this race, which is flooding, adds to jack up their poll numbers and get in so they’re allowed this week. I’M including members of my family and friends, were supporting me, who just thought I’d this incredibly talented, African-American woman who has done things that broken glass ceilings at every point of her career and now somehow the Iowa voters can’t make a decision out. Remind John Kerry is number one in the Iowa and the Iowa caucus Bernie Sanders is not that wealthy. Senator Senator Warren is not that wealthy they’re all staying in and doing better Harmony, what’s happening in Iowa right now, but George is not just is not just billionaires. It’S the fact that Iowa voters should have the right to choose and, in the end, that’s the issue, because I lab lies with a lot of respect for Nate silver buyer. By what hold on just about every time.. There is never in the Democratic party, been someone with a front-runner at this point that ever going on to the White House Bill Clinton. Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama around this time was about 20 points behind Hillary Clinton, Iowa voters. We have to come out here and actually meet folks. You see, people were pulling at low numbers end up finishing first, it wasn’t John Kerry. That year the campaign Iowa voters decide to go to the same issue with the debate stage. Right now. You know we’re running a campaign here where, in Iowa New Hampshire, where are the top in endorsements, we have literally of number one of the top in that favor abilities in the race. We were told my local media here and I was one of the top field organization and they’ve, even press people coming out in Iowa and saying this is ridiculous of the pollsters call. You choose Cory, Booker cuz. He should be on that debate stage. So we’ve been excited the last debate. We’Ve been experiencing our biggest online donation. We have tons of people coming out just yesterday, I’m more elected officials in the stator endorsing my campaign and are frustrated that we are putting artificial barriers, people with money determining who Iowa gets to choose for the next debate stage either. Can you go all in on Iowa just go camp there for the next several weeks and does the fact that you have to serve? Is it likely you’re in the Senate, trial of President Trump make that strategy almost impossible for you keeping the impossible so we’re doing like a lot of candidates have done in the past that were discounted by national media and press we’re running our campaign and we’re having A great result and I’ve been so grateful to the American people because booker.com and making contributions to a campaign helping us to overcome a lot of these artificial barrier. So I’m this has been one of the best trips that I would have had. Our crowds are getting so big we’re having overflow rooms and so we’re going to keep running our campaign. And as far as I take my old very seriously, even if the presents going to violate his I’m going to be in the Senate and do my job and trust that here in Iowa we’re going to continue to build on this momentum. We’Re feeling right now – and I’m really grateful that at this moment in our campaign, we’re breaking records in our campaign. Cuz Americans are saying your voice is important in this race and we can do everything we can to keep you there, because our online small dollar contributions are going up, and I hope that Americans will continue to support us in this last spring. Open voting on Witnesses. You think Rudy Giuliani, especially in the wake of his trip to Ukraine this week, should appear before the Senate and what was your reaction to the president saying that he especially Julian and to send a report on that trip to the attorney general? Look at this. This chapter in American history, president private lawyer, should also be engaging in with the president’s consent in foreign policy parents. At the end of the day, we we are one nation and we have real threats and Russia. We know. I read the intelligence. Reports is a real threat to our country, and, what’s going on right now is just unacceptable to anybody who’s going to be a fair Observer of fact. The fact that we can’t get through the truth is matter. Cuz Giuliani is not willing to testify in the president. Knighted states is holding back witnesses that can give her the American people insights into the true breadth and depth of this corruption is just frustrating to everyone question. I asked her other members earlier in the wake of the shooting in Pensacola on on Friday. What should be done with the United States relationship with Saudi Arabia? How should it be reviewed? Having this is a relationship? We have it’s unacceptable from our military, the plane’s refueling their military plane to drop American-made bombs on Yemen when we’ve, given no authorization for the use of military force and tragedies is causing with tens of thousands of children dying to what was mentioned earlier. In your show that that the murder of the outrageous killing of khashoggi is a relationship that has serious problems and the fact that this President thinks it’s a very transaction way doubling down a relationship and telling us it’s because of just financial interest is unacceptable. America’S best we lead with our values in a Resolute Manner and in this is a relationship more than just an examination in the Senate, we came together in a bipartisan way to rebuke what was some of the things we’ve been doing with this with the Saudis I’ll, Like the engagement in Yemen is unacceptable in his present State, I will change it. We will leave with our values again Senator Booker thanks for joining us this morning. Thank you. Grab him ABC News. Youtube channel.
