Democratic Donor Tom Steyer has always dabbled in politics, but never quite like now. Since July, he’s hopped into the crowded field of 2020 Democratic hopefuls. In his interview on FOX11’s “The Issue Is: with Elex Michaelson,” Steyer explained what separates him from the pack. “The debates were about very important policies…none of these policies can happen until we break the corporate takeover of America.” Steyer, who spearheaded the organization, ‘Need to Impeach,’ also made a bold prediction. Come November, “there’s a good chance [Trump] won’t even be on the ballot.” We discuss impeachment, California's power blackout problems, and the upcoming Democratic debate with our panel.
