"Very little of (the defense) budget — less than 10 percent — actually goes into fighting ISIS and international terrorism."
He wrote one provision
"I helped write" the Affordable Care Act.
Searches were run
"We didn't go out and take" information from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
The link is indirect and complicated
Climate change is "directly related" to the growth of terrorism.

Out of the total U.S. military budget, "significantly less than 10 percent of that money is used to fight international terrorism."
By itself, a joint doesn't get you into the joint
"We are imprisoning or giving jail sentences to young people who are smoking marijuana."
Not on the U.S. payroll
The largest low-wage employer "is not McDonalds or Walmart but the U.S. government."
Israel and Mexico have higher rates

"Poverty levels (are) at an all-time high."
