During Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar’s annual White House trip, he and President Trump took some time to answer questions fielded by various media reporters.
One of the first questions directed to President Trump was for his thoughts on the recent announcement by former Democratic Texas Senate candidate Robert “Beto” O’Rourke that he’ll be running for President in 2020. This doesn’t come as a surprise to anyone. O’Rourke became somewhat of a poster boy for the Democrats after he raised a record 38 million dollars for his 2018 Senate race – which he ended up losing to Republican Ted Cruz.
The question presented by a reporter was “who’s the bigger threat Beto O’Rourke or Joe Biden?”
The President responded saying “I think it’s going to be tough for somebody. But you know what, who ever it is – it makes no difference to me”.
“I just say whoever it is I’ll take em’ on – whoever it is I’ll take him or her on. And I think with the economy going so well with all the things we’ve done with the tax cuts the biggest in the history of our country, with people having a lot more money in their pockets. With their 401(k)s hitting record numbers. The market is hitting almost new highs and I have all the records, every single record I have. I think it’s going to be very tough to beat. If you look at African-American or if you look at Hispanic or Asian unemployment we have the best records in history – in the history of unemployment we have the best records. So I think it’s going to be tough for somebody but you know what whoever it is makes no difference to me whatsoever.”
President Obama’s Former Vice President Joe Biden has not officially announced his run for 2020. Although, many think he will be announcing soon. Out of the two, I believe Biden has the best chance to win the Democratic nomination.
It feels like President Trump just won the election. The 2016 presidential election was a very busy time here at RealNSE. The 2020 election should be no difference – maybe even crazier. So it should be interesting.
