Full Video: CNN Democratic Debate from Flint, Michigan

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders met in Michigan on Sunday night for a debate sponsored by CNN and moderated by Anderson Cooper. The topic of trade was a point of contention with Sanders accusing Clinton of supporting policies which are detrimental to American workers. The trade issue arose this week based on more of Hillary Clinton’s emails released from her time as Secretary of State when she was lobbying privately in favor of a free trade agreement with the country of Colombia, a position she had previously vowed to oppose.

CNN Democratic Debate

Candidates: Clinton, Sanders

Here is the full video of the Democratic debate from Flint, Michigan:

Report from CNN:

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders angrily clashed over ties to Wall Street and auto industry bailouts on Sunday, as underlying tensions in the Democratic presidential race burst into the open in an impassioned CNN debate in Flint, Michigan.

The forum quickly turned into a heated philosophical argument about an economy that Sanders said is weighted against the middle and working classes and is abetted, he said, by close ties between politicians, such as Clinton, and Wall Street financiers.

Sanders accused Clinton of supporting “disastrous” trade policies that contributed to corporate America’s decision to move manufacturing from cities like Flint to low-wage economies in Central America and Asia. But she in turn said that he had refused to vote for a bailout for the auto industry that was included in the outgoing Bush administration’s attempts to stave off the financial crisis.

“If everybody had voted the way he did, I believe the auto industry would have collapsed, taking four million jobs with it,” Clinton said.

At one point, both candidates talked over one another in their determination to make their points about the economy.

“Excuse me, I am talking,” Sanders said.

Hillary still has a sizable lead in Michigan, upwards of 20 points on average. However, the most recent poll as of days ago showed her up only 11 points so perhaps Sanders might be making a little progress. There should be some final polls out on Monday just prior to the Michigan primary on Tuesday, March 8th. For a list of all the states voting on Tuesday, check the primary schedule.

  • Most of the middle and low class people having difficulty paying bills for rent and other utility because there is radical increment every 6 months for rent than what they are getting from there job,so in coming days when your the president of USA how can u save the people of USA paying too much rent every month so that every mum can effort good food and clothing for there kids.

  • All school in USA are under same roof of government ,but they are divided with low grade and high grade school in same zip code ,what all the people have to think about this situation?,This issue is mostly in ohio

  • I keep finding truncated clips cutting off responses in the Flint debate. So, I tried to find the entire uncensored debate online since I don't have TV. It has been censored by copyright by CNN and Turner Broadcasting.
    This raises a question: why are all the republican debates available in full and why did CNN block only this debate while all the others are available online? Privatized media corporations now have the right using copyright laws to restrict debates to the ones they choose?

    • It's been updated, refresh the page for the full debate video. It is shameful the way media outlets lock down access to the debate videos.

  • "We have 90% coverage!" Is she fucking serious? 90% of that 90% of us have the absolute most minimal coverage financially possible. State employees who have what most people consider "great benefits" are getting murdered by staggering deductibles and nonexistent co-pays. So please, Mrs. Clinton, be a little more fucking specific in how we are so much better off....bitch.
