President Donald Trump is eager for the 2020 presidential election to start — and he’s gone so far as to endorse one 2020 Democratic front-runner for president.
That is, he’s picked out who his preferred opponent is for the upcoming election. Trump wants him to win enough votes to win the Democratic primary… so Trump can beat him in the general election.
Trump isn’t afraid of any candidate — but there’s one he’s circling with a big red pen because he’s so certain he can defeat him.
Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-T.X., is the most vulnerable Democratic frontrunner because he plays to Trump’s strengths, the president told Fox Business Network in an interview that aired Friday.
He threw out a few Democratic front-runners he’s itching to square off against — but the president implied that the media’s love affair with Beto makes him vulnerable to Trump’s anti-establishment style.
“I mean, I’d love to have Biden. I’d love to have Bernie. I’d love to have Beto,” he told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo.
“I mean, Beto seems to be the one the press has chosen. The press seems to have chosen Beto,” Trump later said. “When I watch Beto, I say: We could dream about that [match-up].”
Trump said he’s growing increasingly confident in his re-election chances because of how far-left Democrats have swung in the early primary.
In recent weeks, Democratic presidential candidates have been promising everything to primary voters: Slavery reparations, $100+ trillion spending promises, free college, a new Supreme Court, and more.
“The Democrats actually are becoming a far left party,” Trump said. “I mean, they’re becoming a radical party. You look at what they want to do with the Supreme Court. You look at what they want to do with the voting age. Where did that come all of the sudden? The voting age at 16… They’re becoming radical! They are radicalized.”
