Sanders: We've 'Come a Long Way' in Making Democratic Party 'More Progressive'

On Thursday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that “we have come a long way, I think, in transforming the Democratic Party and making it into a more progressive party.” Sanders said, “I’m proud that we changed the political discourse in this country, that ideas that today are widely accepted, are part of the mainstream, are being supported by many Democratic candidates, if you will recall, three years ago, these ideas [were] considered to be radical and extreme and fringe ideas. So, we have come a long way, I think, in transforming the Democratic Party and making it into a more progressive party.” He added, “[M]any of the major issues that I have been talking about for years are now widely supported by the American people.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Dem Rep. Ryan: 'China Is Overtaking Us in Every Way,' 'We Are Falling Behind'

Wednesday on syndicated radio’s “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) warned that the United States of America is “falling behind China.” According to Ryan, China is “locking down long-term deals in Africa for raw materials,” trying to take over manufacturing in the world and investing billions in artificial intelligence. “[W]e aren’t even acting like we’re in a competition with [China],” Ryan lamented. “And the Defense budget with the technologies that are in there, and look, we’ve got to audit the Defense Department. We’ve got to make sure we’re not wasting money. But we are falling behind in major technologies in weapons systems that we can’t afford to fall back on.” “We have got to make sure every member of the Democratic caucus and the country understand this competition. And if you’re in this competition, and China is overtaking us in so many ways, Russia doesn’t have quite as strong of an economic hand as China does, but they are playing their hand pretty well, militarily. And we’ve got to compete with them as well. If you don’t understand that competition, you’re not going to understand the need,” he added. Ryan’s comments echo Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s from his appearance

Dem Rep. Cicilline: 'Democrats Support Border Security' — 'In a Smart Way'

Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) during an appearance on “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox News Channel argued Democrats support border security when it is done “in a smart way.” Instead of a wall at the border, Cicilline suggested using the best technology available to protect the border, which he said would be a better use of taxpayers’ money. “Democrats support border security,” Cicilline told host Maria Bartiromo. “We appropriated in the last two years $1.6 billion for border security, and Democrats support that. We just think it should be done in a smart way — use technology, use sensors, use drones, use more personnel; use it in a way that’s effective.” “Let’s secure the borders in a cost-effective way, using the best technology that will keep our borders safe,” he added.
