Transcript for Strong support for government-run health care at Bernie Sanders event
Now, to the race for 2020 tonight, and the fiery town hall. Bernie Sanders on Fox News. And the question about health care in America, it drew a huge response from the audience. And tonight, president trump tweeting, puzzled why Bernie Sanders was on Fox News. Their response tonight, and here's ABC's Mary Bruce. Reporter: In trump territory, rust belt Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, at a town hall on the president's favorite network, Fox News, Bernie Sanders asked voters to embrace one of his most Progressive ideas -- medicare for all. Do you think it makes sense to spend twice as much per capita as the people of any other nation and be the only country in the world not to guarantee health care to all people? Reporter: Moderator Brett Baier then took it a step further. I want to ask the audience a question, if you could raise your hands here, show of hands of how many people get their insurance from work, private insurance, right now. How many get it from private insurance? Okay. Now, of those, who many are willing to transition to what the senator says, a government-run system. Reporter: Health care was the number one issue in the midterms, and this group of Democrats and Republicans are making it clear, it will likely top the list again in 2020. President trump, who has blasted the idea of medicare for all, was watching, tweeting "So weird to watch crazy Bernie on Fox News. Not surprisingly, Bret Baier and the audience was so smily and nice. Very strange." Baier responding "Thanks for watching, Mr. President. We cover all sides." Mary, the Bernie Sanders town hall getting the president's attention, but also the white house tonight, focused on the Mueller report. We know a redacted version set to be released on Thursday morning. What are you learning tonight? How is the white house now Reporter: Well, David, tonight, there are already some discussion within the trump legal team about releasing their own counter-report, depending on what they see on Thursday. Rudy Giuliani says they could release their own roughly 35-page version. In the meantime, several outlets are already planning to publish the redacted Mueller report as a book, and on Amazon tonight, it's already a best-seller. Best-seller before it comes out. Mary Bruce, thank you.
