When Booker was done, Trump accused him of making 'false charges,' called him an 'empty suit,' and accused him of not living in Newark when he was mayor. hqy世界播


'How dare failed Presidential Candidate (1% and falling!) @CoryBooker make false charges and statements about me in addressing Judge Barrett. Illegally, never even lived in Newark when he was Mayor,' Trump said in a pair of tweets as soon as Booker finished. hqy世界播


'Guy is a total loser! I want better Healthcare for far less money, always...protecting people with Pre-existing conditions. He has done nothing on Healthcare, cost or otherwise, or virtually anything else. An empty suit!!!' hqy世界播

Trump lashed out a Booker immediately after his questioning time hqy世界播






Unlike some members on the committee, Booker used much of his time to ask Barrett a series questions about loaded political topics hqy世界播


Trump for days would only say he would agree to a peaceful transfer if there were a 'fair' election. hqy世界播


'To the extent that this is a political context right now, as a judge I want to say out of it,' Barrett told him. hqy世界播


'In light of our founding fathers, in light of our traditions … I’m just asking you should a president commit themselves like our founding fathers I think had the clear intention … to the peaceful transfer of power,' Booker tried again. hqy世界播


Barrett responded only that: 'One of the beauties of America ... is that we have had peaceful transfers of power,' whereas many other nations don't, she said. hqy世界播


Booker then hit Trump's Supreme Court nominee with an arcane question that is also debated by scholars: whether the Constitution permits a president to pardon himself. hqy世界播


It is a potential issue, as Trump investigation by federal prosecutors in New York, and the New York Times obtained Trump tax returns that experts said could open him to investigation for potentially fraudulent tax deductions. Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes in 2016, the Times reported. hqy世界播


'That would be a legal question. That would be a constitutional question,' Barrett told him on the pardon. 'I think I agree with you. That it is an issue right now that our president may seek to pardon himself,' Booker said. hqy世界播


It was one of several topics Barrett sought to dodge, and it is one she might have to consider if she makes it to the high court and Trump does take the action. hqy世界播


The Booker asked about Trump's reported multi-million debts to foreign entities. 'I think it’s disturbing that we’re having this conversation,' he told the witness. hqy世界播


'Presidents should reveal what their debts are. Especially if it’s to foreign nations,' Booker told her. hqy世界播


Booker began quoting former Trump Defense James Mattis calling Trump a 'danger to our democracy.' Mattis blasted Trump in June after the clearing of protesters across from Lafayette Park. hqy世界播

布克开始引用前特朗普辩护律师詹姆斯·马蒂斯(James Mattis)的话,称特朗普是“对我们民主的威胁”。今年6月,在拉斐特公园对面的抗议者被驱散后,马蒂斯抨击了特朗普。hqy世界播

'The legitimacy of our institutions are at stake,' Booker said. 'It’s not normal that the president would further cast a shadow over your nomination,' he added. 'It’s an illegitimate process. Most Americans think that we should wait.' hqy世界播


Trump's attack appeared to revive a 2013 claim by Booker's former opponent, although his campaign shot back that property records and other evidence established Booker lived in Newark from 2006 through 2013 while he was mayor. Bookers campaign provided rent checks as well as payments from his security detail, which lived on a floor of a home following threats. hqy世界播

特朗普的攻击似乎重新唤起了布克前对手2013年的一项主张,尽管他的竞选团队回击了财产记录和其他证据,证明布克在2006年至2013年担任市长期间曾住在纽瓦克。Bookers Campaign提供租金支票以及他的安保人员的付款,在受到威胁后,他的安保人员住在一所房子的一层。hqy世界播
