Who won the Republican debate last night: Donald Trump gets 5 and Carly Fiorina 9 out of 10 in GOP Presidential debate

Many people are wondering as to who won the GOP debate last night. There is no denying the fact that with Donald Trump around, there is really no chance for anyone to beat him, more so when the momentum is on his side.

Nonetheless this time the debate was not as one-sided as Trump would have liked it to be. He got some tough moments and had to give in meekly on some occasions too.

Many people have claimed that it was actually former HP boss Carly Fiorina who won the debate hands down. Jeb Bush who showed some spark this time round, was without doubt eclipsed by Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump.

This may be the reason that CNN’s Jake Tapper made the following opening remark. “In an interview last week in Rolling Stone magazine, Donald Trump said the following about you. Quote, ‘Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?’ Mr. Trump later said he was talking about your persona, not your appearance. Please feel free to respond what you think about his persona” Tapper said.

Fiorina was categorical in her response and while addressing larger female voters outside the studio said, “I think women all over this country heard very clearly what Mr. Trump said.”

Foreign policy is among Trump’s weakest aspects like many other serious policy matters he was found wanting when it came to foreign affairs. On the contrary Fiorina was fully prepared. When asked what she would do to out Russians from Syria Fiorina had a well-laid out plan. “What I would do, immediately, is begin rebuilding the Sixth Fleet, I would begin rebuilding the missile defense program in Poland, I would conduct regular, aggressive military exercises in the Baltic states. I’d probably send a few thousand more troops into Germany. Vladimir Putin would get the message. By the way, the reason it is so critically important that every one of us know General Suleimani’s name is because Russia is in Syria right now, because the head of the Quds force traveled to Russia and talked Vladimir Putin into aligning themselves with Iran and Syria to prop up Bashar al- Assad” said she.

On the contrary Trump was ill-prepared to face the question and received jeers from the audience. “I would talk to [Putin]. I would get along with him. I believe — and I may be wrong, in which case I’d probably have to take a different path, but I would get along with a lot of the world leaders that this country is not getting along with…We don’t get along with China. We don’t get along with the heads of Mexico. We don’t get along with anybody, and yet, at the same time, they rip us left and right. They take advantage of us economically and every other way. We get along with nobody. I will get along — I think — with Putin, and I will get along with others, and we will have a much more stable — stable world”, said Trump.
