& # 39; The biggest threat to the security of the United States is Donald Trump & # 39 ;, said an authorized Inslee during the first night of the first democratic primary debates of 2020.
Inslee & # 39; s response received an enthusiastic response from the hundreds of people gathered in Miami for the two-night event.

The other candidates provided a wide variety of answers, including climate change, Iran, nuclear proliferation and China
Moderator and NBC host, Chuck Todd, asked for each of the 10 candidates who took the debate stage for the two-hour event issue, a one or two word response about who or what is currently the biggest geopolitical threat to the US.
Candidates gave different answers, but the governor of Washington was the only one who called the president by name.
Inslee regularly puts down a poll as one of the least popular candidates among likely democratic primary voters – who usually come last or close.
In all national polls, and almost every regional poll, he came in with 1 percent support or less.
Bill de Blaiso, the mayor of New York City, seemed to send his response a little to the president, but did not explicitly proclaim Trump.
& # 39; Russia, & # 39; he said, is the biggest threat, & # 39; because they are trying to undermine our democracy and they have done a pretty damn good job and we have to stop it. & # 39;
Inslee is one of the least popular candidates out of 25 ongoing, regular polls at 1 percent or less among likely democratic primary voters
