Democratic hopeful Beto O’rourke says he believes abortion should be a woman, the decision, after he asked the third-trimester abortion at a campaign event in Cleveland, Ohio.

PLYMOUTH, N. H. Beto O’rourke is taking aim at embattled Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, and claimed to be the steadfast ally of the Republican President trump “has pointedly with racists.”

The democratic presidential candidate and former Congressman from Texas on the election campaign in New Hampshire, also criticized the negotiators who are trying, allegedly, to the end of the generations-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.


“Right now, we are the best negotiating’t have partners on both sides. We have a Prime Minister in Israel, which is open on one side with racists,” he charged.

O’rourke has been a critic of Israel’s long-standing conservative leader who faces a corruption scandal at home, but the comments were some of his most noted in the description of Netanyahu. O’rourke also met with a Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas.

“On the Palestinian side, we have an incompetent leader. Mahmoud Abbas has not been very effective in the education of his side of the table,” he complained.


O’rourke – who lost his plunge for the 2018 bid, GOP sen. Ted Cruz with the voice on Tuesday night at Keene State College. The attack was the first impetus for a jam-packed 48-hour swing through all 10 counties of New Hampshire, the state that holds the first primary in the race for the White house.


The candidate was asked during a question-and-answer session with the audience about the acceptance of large sums from the contributions of pro-Israel lobbyists during his 2018 Senate election in Texas.

“If you are no demand, whether the contributions, I accept the connection to the policy, which I support, is the answer is “no”, he replied.

O’rourke once again for a “two-state solution” between Israel and the Palestinians, for peace in the Middle East. “I believe in peace and dignity, and full human rights for the Palestinian people and the Israeli people. The only way to reach the … is a two-state solution,” he said.

While on Wednesday in New Hampshire holds that, in the meantime, O’rourke targeted sales of assault weapons, skirted his stance on late-term abortions, pre-K Start for the four-year-old, and he realized that he runs a learning curve for the President.

Asked, during an event at Plymouth State University about his stance on assault weapons, O’rourke again its conviction that such guns should be for military purposes.

He promised that if “you have something like an AR-15 and I’m your President, you keep it. Continue to use it responsibly. I don’t want to someone the weapons of everyone in the country.”

But he said that the AR-15, “which is a variant of something that was designed to be in the battle field, I see no reason for it to be sold in our communities.”


Speaking with reporters, O’rourke was asked by Fox News how he would have voted on a controversial GOP-sponsored Senate bill, the born required doctors for medical care for newborns, including those during failed abortions. Most of the Senate Democrats slammed the bill – which is a burden on a 60-vote threshold to advance politically.

“I would have listened to, the women I wanted, in the state of Texas. I would have listened to doctors and medical service providers. I would have looked at the facts and understand the truth. And then I would have voted to allow women their own decisions about their own body,” O’rourke replied. But he did not say how he voted on the bill, which was a political lightning rod.

The answer was similar to the one O ‘Rourke’ s answered questions about abortion since the Start of his election campaign last week. The candidate gave an indication of his support for the right to abortion by adding, “I have seen the impact of the regressive women’s health care policies in Texas, the inability to obtain much needed medical help… I want to make sure that at the national level, we do not make this mistake.”

As a three-term Congressman representing El Paso in the house O’rourke, a law in the year 2017, supported, would have lifted most state restrictions on abortion, including waiting times.

Abortion has become a pressing issue in the race for the democratic presidential nomination, with the fears of the party, the new conservative majority on the Supreme Court will roll back the right to abortion, for generations, while the conservatives have accused prominent Democrats of indifference to child death.

O’rourke repeated kindergarten also his push for universal pre -, from the age of four years.

He said he would partially pay for the program with the question, “the very richest pay a larger share of their wealth.”

And he said that “it will cause us to spend more up front but we will see a much higher return on the taxes paid on the street by people who earn far more than they otherwise would have done.”

O’rourke picked up a record $80 million in the past year-Senate-campaign, and he set a new record in his White house run, hauling in $6.1 million in its first 24 hours as a candidate, the most of any 2020 Democratic presidential candidate. On Wednesday, he announced that the contributions were made by 128,000 people, with the average donation at $48.

Sen Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who raised $5.9 million the day after he announced his candidacy last month, had the contributions of 223,000 people, the average donation at $27.

While O’rourke’s campaign cash for the headlines, a series of missteps out of the gate.

Last weekend O ‘ Rourke apologizes for joking at several events on Thursday and Friday, that his wife raised had Amy, and the couple has three children, “sometimes with my help.”

Discussion of comments – the critics said illuminated unwelcome gender-stereo-types – O ‘ Rourke promised, “only that I don’t say that, but I will be more thoughtful going forward in the way that I talk about our marriage.”

On Wednesday, O’rourke told the crowd that “Amy and I, raise these kiddos.”

Asked whether there is a learning curve to the presidential election campaign, he answered quickly: “Yes. Oh, Yes. I’m smart enough to know that there is so much more for me. To learn the only way for me to show up in the communities I seek to serve, and hear what from the human perspective.”
