"I am watching.

I think right now it will be Sleepy Joe, I think," Trump said after he was asked who he thinks will be the Democratic presidential nominee.

"I feel he'll limp across the line...I know the other people, I know him.

I think he's off his game by a lot, but personally I think it's going to be Sleepy Joe." Progressive allies Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts headline the first night of the second Democratic presidential debates on Tuesday, with eight other contenders aiming for a breakout performance that could propel them into the top tier of the White House race.

The first of two debates on back-to-back nights will give Warren and Sanders, old friends who have been battling for second place in opinion polls behind front-runner Joe Biden, a chance to draw some contrasts between their progressive policies even though they have promised not to attack each other.

The other candidates on stage in Detroit on Tuesday, including Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, former congressman Beto O'Rourke and U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, will be aiming for the sort of post-debate surge that U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California enjoyed after a strong performance in the first Democratic debate in Miami last month.

Harris got a bump in the polls when she confronted Biden over his past opposition to forced busing and comments about working with segregationists.

She and Biden, the former vice president, will renew their rivalry on the second night of the debate on Wednesday.

The crowded field of about two dozen candidates is vying for attention and financial support in the race for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in 2020.
