Cory Booker mixes positivity with liberal policies at CNN town hall

At the latest CNN town hall, held in South Carolina and moderated by Don Lemon, Cory Booker tried to make himself stand apart from the other Democratic candidates by focusing on positivity in his campaign.

“What Americans want is not to know what we’re against. They want to know what we’re for … You can’t lead the people if you don’t love the people. All of the people,” Booker said.

He also says his faith plays an important role and Christ is the center of his life.

When asked about the Jussie Smollett case, Booker responded that he “didn’t know the details” but “white supremacy is on the rise in America.”

Booker says he would give DACA folks a pathway to citizenship and reverse everything Trump has done.

He would also let transgender people serve in the military again.

Booker had no kind words for the NRA, however and pledged to ”bring the fight like the NRA has never seen if they’re going to defend corporate gun manufacturers.”

When asked about his “present” vote on the Green New Deal, Booker said he didn’t need to play by McConnell’s rules.
