Hillary Clinton supporter Rep. Steve Israel: 'Donald Trump is the Republican Party'

On Thursday, Democratic Congressman Steve Israel joined Alexis Christoforous on "Yippee News Live" to examine his backing for Hillary Clinton, her way to the designation and, as the previous administrator of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, how Donald Trump's appointment will affect the down-vote races in November.

On regardless of whether Israel is shocked that the Republican race has wrapped up before the Democratic race, he told Christoforous, "I need to admit that I am somewhat staggered not by the way that Republicans have now picked the new face of the Republican Party as right on time as they did, however the way that Donald Trump is the new face of the Republican Party."

Does he think Clinton will at last be the chosen one, in spite of Bernie Sanders' proceeded with nearness in the race? "Yes," he said. "She has more than 3 million votes more than Bernie Sanders, almost 300 more promised agents than Bernie Sanders. She will be the candidate. She's not underestimating anything, Alexis. She's going to keep on working hard and battle forcefully."

Israel rejected Sanders' contention that he is the better chosen one since he improves against Trump in surveys. "We're in a political situation now where there's something going ahead with surveying, and those surveys — whether they're beneficial for you or awful for you — those surveys are not the most solid vehicles in which to make a judgment," he said. "I will say that toward the day's end, in a general decision environment when you have a differentiation between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, I believe that Hillary Clinton has a more grounded capacity to win that general race." He conceded, in any case, that "this will be an erratic general race environment."

He said Clinton will engage an extensive part of the general electorate due to the perils of a Trump administration. "She is going to attempt and claim — and not simply attempt and advance, since I trust she will offer — to those moderate and autonomous voters no matter how you look at it since they know, themselves, that President Donald Trump is a high-chance suggestion for the United States of America," he said.

Israel did not ask Sanders to drop out of the race. "That is a judgment that Bernie Sanders needs to make, eventually," he said. "I would ask him, however — without asking him to get out or stay in — I would encourage him to center not on what contrasts Democrats might possibly have, yet to concentrate on Donald Trump and lay off assaulting Hillary Clinton and rather concentrate on what he trusts he conveys to the table regarding Donald Trump. In the event that he does that, he has the privilege to stay in, however at one point, we must be joined together, we must be sorted out."

Israel additionally had a message for Sanders about Trump reverberating the representative's assaults on Clinton's judgment and capabilities: "Leave those assaults to the Republicans. Try not to empower those assaults." He then had a message about Trump's discussion of "terrible judgment." "Recall that, this is a person who has said that a lady ought to be rebuffed for her own social insurance choices, that we ought to restriction all Muslims from coming into the United States and that not just does he contradict expanding the lowest pay permitted by law, however that wages are as of now too high," he said. "Those are case of awful judgment."

The previous seat of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee likewise talked about the down-ticket decision. "Donald Trump is the Republican Party," he said. "He is the face, the voice, the chosen one of the Republican Party, and in case you're running down-ticket, you have a commitment to say whether you're with Trump or against Trump. I expect that the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will consider Republicans responsible to their positions."

Israel, nonetheless, would not yet anticipate if Trump's bid would hand the Democrats both the House and the Senate in November. "I trust that the Senate is especially in play," he told Christoforous. "I need to let you know, as the previous seat of the DCCC, I think it is untimely to say that the House is in play."
