Tom Steyer: Trump Won Democrats' Contentious Debate

Billionaire Tom Steyer, one of the Democrats who did not make the debate stage in Las Vegas Wednesday night, said Thursday there was one winner from the often-contentious event: President Donald Trump. 

"I saw so much bickering between Democratic candidates tearing each other down and going after each other and forgetting the fact that what really counts is beating Donald Trump in November of 2020," Steyer told CNN's "New Day." "I saw people going after each other's personality and records instead of remembering that, in fact, the Democratic Party needs to win in November."

Many of the attacks against Mike Bloomberg, the other billionaire in the race for the presidency, were about his wealth, and Steyer commented that he agrees that "unchecked capitalism has failed."

"I think that people who've been as successful as Mike Bloomberg or me should understand that the Democratic Party stands for the idea that the inequality in this country is unacceptable," Steyer said. "That's why I said from the very beginning I said about Mike Bloomberg. 'You want to run as a Democrat? You have to come out for a wealth tax. I did it long before I was running for president, because what's gone on is wrong.'"

Steyer said he backs giving a 10% tax cut to every American making less than $250,000 a year, plus having a wealth tax that will collect from both passive and earned income. 

"(Bloomberg) has to understand that Democrats represent the vast bulk of working people in this country," said Steyer. "That means black people and brown people and Asian-Americans and Native Americans as well as white people. That's his responsibility. He sounded like he was running in the wrong primary last night."
