DONALD Trump has said a Democrat pledge to give “illegal aliens unlimited healthcare” has won him the 2020 election.
The President was reacting to the second of two Democratic contenders debates in Miami last night.

During the debate – which featured front-runners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders – the panel of ten Democrats were asked about healthcare.
They all raised their hands when asked if they would give health care to migrants in the country illegally.
President Trump tweeted: “All Democrats just raised their hands for giving millions of illegal aliens unlimited healthcare.
“How about taking care of American Citizens first!?”
‘THAT’S THE END OF THAT RACE!’
Declaring victory already – President Trump then added: “That’s the end of that race!”
was meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the G20 summit in Japan at the time.
But he said that he “passed a TV set” and saw the Democrats debating.
Despite Joe Biden being tipped as the favourite to take on Trump, California Senator Kamala Harris was widely viewed as the surprise winner in last night’s standoff.
In an emotional exchange, Senator Harris challenged Biden for recalling how he was able to work with segregationist senators in the 1970s.
She said that she did not believe he is a racist – but that his past associations were “hurtful.”
Biden said Harris was wrongfully characterising his position – but she hit back by saying: “There are moments in history where states fail to support the civil rights of people.”
ATTACKS ON BIDEN
She was among several lesser-known candidates who trained their fire at former Vice President Biden.
Eric Swalwell, a 38-year-old congressman from California, labeled Biden a relic of the party’s past.
But there were broad pledges among all the candidates to tackle gun violence, climate change, and to move beyond the divisiveness of President Trump’s tenure.
