Even with nearly a dozen Democrats vying for the White House ahead of 2020, President Donald Trump says he hasn’t found a rival who will really challenge him.
“So far, I don’t see anybody,” Trump said. “I’m not impressed with this group.”
Taking Some Early Shots
Trump hasn’t kept quiet about the Democrats’ 2020 hopefuls. The president has poked fun at several contenders on Twitter, including, most recently, Sen. Cory Booker.
According to Trump, the New Jersey senator has “got no chance.”
“I know him,” Trump said. “I don’t think he has a chance.”
It’s not hard to see why Trump made that assumption, as Booker has done virtually nothing since he arrived in the Senate in 2013. He’s like the guy in the Campbell’s Soup commercials: he always looks like he’s doing something, but he never actually accomplishes anything.
As the ninth African-American senator elected to serve, Booker was able to worm his way onto some rather notable committees — but his name only appears on a couple pieces of legislation as a sponsor or co-sponsor.
Meanwhile, Booker has spent his time opposing Trump at every opportunity and even spreading false narratives about the president.
Focusing on the Big Picture
If Booker were to win the 2020 nomination from the Democrats, you can bet your last dollar that he will make his opposition to Trump a platform issue. He’s already one of the many Democrats currently in office that continues to try to persuade the American people that the president is outright racist.
On the campaign trail, he will no doubt have the likes of Jesse Jackson and Rev. Al Sharpton standing next to him on the dais offering their support. (Keep in mind these same two men have been at dinners to show their support for Donald Trump’s contributions to the minority community in Booker’s home state!)
Indeed, Booker is nothing more than a snake oil salesman in a tailored suit. He is a perfect example of everything that is wrong with today’s politicians.
He creates narratives and issues to justify his salary, but he does nothing for the people he represents. And shockingly, he actually admitted this when he announced.
Booker flat-out said that his only priority over the next two years is campaigning for the presidency.
I wonder how the people of New Jersey feel about being on Booker’s backburner since they elected him to represent them and the state of New Jersey.
