What is the true cost of Medicare for all?

Juniper Research Group founder and CEO Chris Jacobs breaks down the cost.

The Trump campaign slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, on Friday for his intention to extend Medicare-for-all for all illegal immigrants currently living in the U.S.

Speaking at a presidential candidate forum in Miami earlier on Friday, Sanders vowed to “organize the American people” to get onboard with government-funded health care for everyone, reiterating that it should be a “human right.” When asked by the moderator if the approximate 11 million illegal immigrants would be included, Sanders quickly responded, “absolutely.”

“When I talk about healthcare being a human right, the last time I heard that undocumented people are human beings as well,” Sanders added.

President Trump’s “War Room” blasted the 2020 candidate on Twitter.

“This is unfair to America’s seniors who have worked hard and paid into Medicare their whole life,” the campaign exclaimed.

RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also swiped Sanders. saying the Democrats’ “radical agenda” was on “full display.”

Fellow Democratic candidate, former Colorado governor John Hickenlooper, was also asked if all 11 million illegal immigrants would be eligible for his healthcare plan but expressed that the country “wasn’t ready” to guarantee such benefits for all of them, but did leave the door open once when immigration reform takes place.

2020 Democratic candidate Joe Biden says the Trump presidency is a threat to democracy

Former Vice President Joe Biden made a bold promise on Tuesday to “cure cancer” if he is elected president in 2020.

At a campaign event in Ottumwa, Iowa, Biden expressed the difficulty one faces with a “loss” of a family member and others attempt to comfort them saying, “‘I know how you feel'” when in reality they have “no idea how I feel,” which is likely in reference to the loss of his son Beau Biden, who died in 2015 from brain cancer.

“That’s why I’ve worked so hard in my career to make sure that… I promise you if I’m elected president, you’re going to see the single most important thing that changes America, we’re gonna cure cancer,” Biden declared.

His remarks were welcomed with applause.

In 2016, Biden headed the “Cancer Moonshot” program during the Obama administration in a renewed effort to find a cure for cancer. He also launched the Biden Cancer Initiative after leaving office.

The Democratic frontrunner took some shots at President Trump while campaigning in Iowa, calling him an “existential threat” to the country.

“Daily Show” host Trevor Noah appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Thursday night and offered some rare praise for President Trump for being the first president to “actually deliver” on his campaign promises.

Noah, 35, began by knocking critics who claimed he wasn’t “angry enough” when he first took over “The Daily Show” in 2015 from Jon Stewart.

“When I took over ‘The Daily Show,’ everyone was like, ‘What are you going to make jokes about?’ And then one of the main things people have said to me was — they said, ‘You’re just not angry enough, Trevor. Where’s your indignation?’ And I was like, ‘What do you have to be angry about? Things are going great right now; your economy is growing, your president is loved, your footprint around the world is one that’s being cemented as the super power. What are you angry about?'” Noah recounted to Jimmy Kimmel.

“And then people had all of this faux anger and they were like, ‘You’ve got to be angry’ and I was like ‘There’s nothing to be angry about. There’s nothing to be stressed about right now. And I was worried about that for the show.”

“We’re always angry about something. If there’s nothing important to be angry about, we’ll find something dumb to be angry about,” Kimmel said in agreement. “Somebody will put pineapple on a pizza and we’ll lose our minds.”

The Comedy Central star then pivoted to the Trump presidency and acknowledged a trait rarely seen in politics.

“Then when Donald Trump was elected and then proceeded to do what he had promised, ironically, right?” Noah continued. “Because it’s funny that Donald Trump would be the first presidential candidate to actually deliver. Hate him or love him, hate him or love him, he’s doing the things he said he was going to do.”

The South African comic routinely comments on Trump and American politics on his Comedy Central show and is ramping up the show’s political coverage ahead of the 2020 races.

“What’s going to be interesting for me in 2020 is this new narrative and this new discussion around the Democratic Party — because for a long time it’s just been one storyline: Donald Trump,” Noah said at a SXSW panel in March. “But now it’s going to be: Who are the Democrats? What do they stand for? What are their plans?”

“We’re going to be at the conventions, we’re going to be tracking the primaries,” Noah said. “We’re going to go where ever there’s access.”
