Former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove, on weighs, what can the audience expect that from the first to the 2020 Democratic presidential debate.

Presidential candidate Beto O’rourke at his question, the tax rates for wealthy Americans during Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Miami, and instead spoke at length in the Spanish corporate welfare.

NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, the first question to the former Congressman from El Paso, Texas, worried about whether he supports high tax rates for some of America’s highest income bracket.

“Some Democrats want a marginal individual tax rate of 70 percent on the highest earners, those making more than $10 million per year. You would be supporting, and if not, what would be your top individual rate,” she asked.

“In this economy, work for all, and now we know that it is so. And we all come together to ensure that it works is said,” O ‘ Rourke, before switching to Spanish.

The sudden switch seemed to give prompt sen. Cory Booker, his Democratic rival in the side-eye-even though Booker was a part of the answer in Spanish, later in the debate.

O’rourke did not answer whether he supported the tax rate.

“Beto is asked about the 70 percent tax rate, and somehow ends up talking about the registration of voters. But not taxes,” tweeted Tim Murtaugh, communications director for the President of the Trump s re-election campaign.


The Latinos have become a very important block in the last few years. Trump launched a “Latinos for trump” campaign in Miami, at the beginning of this week, and many residents of the city are bilingual.
