The Democrat Debate was held in South Florida on Wednesday night. This is the first of two presidential primary debates. Bill de Blasio, Tim Ryan, Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, John Delaney, and Jay Inslee took the stage at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, Florida.

Before and during the debate, several hundred Trump supporters protested against socialism outside on the sidewalk. Most to them had signs that read “Democrats for Trump #WalkAway” and “Socialism Sucks” and many sported their red MAGA hats.

Cubans with personal experiences of socialism expressed their opinions of the Democratic party. They know firsthand what socialism does.

A group of Dade and Broward County police officers and members of the Police Benevolent Association of New York were protesting New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s appearance. PBA president Pat Lynch told the New York Daily News that Bill de Blasio cut city workers health benefits for employees and retirees and offered them low raises while giving himself a 15 percent pay raise.

The PBA, which represents 50, 000 police officers and retirees, purchased this ad in the Miami Herald.

On Thursday night, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kirsten Gillibrand, Michael Bennet, Marianne Williamson, Eric Swalwell, Andrew Yang, and John Hickenlooper will take the stage for the second round of the debate.
