How to watch a GOP debate live
GOP presidential candidates will debate in Flint, Mich., on Monday, where they will face off against each other in a four-way debate.
Here’s what you need to know about the candidates, their positions and the candidates’ views on the Flint water crisis.
Republican Donald Trump and Democratic rival Hillary Clinton have held their first debate in Detroit since the governor ordered the city to stop using the Flint River as a drinking water source last summer.
The two candidates are scheduled to debate at the Michigan Fair, and they’re joined by several other Republican and Democratic candidates.
Trump is scheduled to host the debate on Monday night, while Clinton is expected to appear on Thursday morning.
The former secretary of state is expected on the debate stage with her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
While the Republican and Democrat candidates are expected to share similar views on Flint’s water crisis, they differ in their views on a host of other topics, including the economy, national security and the future of the Affordable Care Act.
Trump has previously expressed skepticism about the viability of the ACA and questioned whether the GOP could ever repeal the law.
Clinton has made the same criticisms about the ACA, calling it a “socialized medicine system,” and has said the ACA has not helped many Americans and that it will ultimately cost the country too much money.
Both candidates have called for the removal of Flint’s emergency manager and have pledged to defund the state’s Medicaid expansion, which was implemented under the ACA.
Flint is one of the poorest cities in the country and one of its poorest states.
It is not the first time that a major city in the United States has been affected by the water crisis in Flint.
The city’s residents are still grappling with the aftermath of the crisis, which is the most severe since the Flint Water Crisis in 2014, when the city became the site of a public water emergency.
According to a study from the New York Times, Flint’s population has increased by more than 4,000 people since 2014.
As of July 15, more than 100,000 residents in the city of Flint are still under water advisories, according to the city’s Department of Public Works.
Water contamination and lead-tainted water from the city has contributed to an outbreak of Legionnaires disease, a potentially deadly bacteria that can be passed from person to person.
