(WXYZ) — The second night of the Democratic presidential debate has come to a close, with tense exchanges between candidates.

In response, the Republican National Committee says President Trump won't have anything to worry about in 2020.

"Proving that nothing is impossible, Democrats moved even further to the left tonight," said Chairwoman of the RNC, Ronna McDaniel. "Once again, the Democrat candidates boasted extreme, socialist policies and a government takeover of every aspect of our lives. As the Democrat field narrows, our country will continue to thrive under President Trump’s winning agenda of rising wages, new jobs, and a booming economy. Not a single Democrat candidate can compete with President Trump’s record, and the American people are ready to re-elect him in 2020 to keep up this great American comeback."

And on the second night of debates, President Trump chimed in on the debate on Twitter, saying the first night of the debate garnered "very low ratings."

According to CNN, the first night of the debate on Tuesday drew in 9.2 million viewers.
