President Trump just put Democrats on high alert for the 2020 presidential election.
During an interview with Piers Morgan during his overseas trip, Trump hinted he is going to run for re-election because “everyone” wants him to.
As the Dems line up challengers for the 2020 election, it has been unclear as to whether or not Trump was actually going to run for re-election.
The polarizing president made it fairly clear he is not only going to run but that he is already seeing a groundswell of support encouraging him to go for four more years.
When directly asked by Piers Morgan if he was going to run, Trump set the record straight in emphatic form.
Trump stated, “I fully intend to. It seems like everybody wants me to run.”
When asked about his competition and how much of a chance they would have against him, his confidence level at getting elected for a second term overflowed the glass.
“I don’t see anybody. I know them all and I don’t see anybody,” Trump stated.
To this point, there had been no official word from the Trump campaign, but there were plenty of feelers out there.
Trump had actually filed the paperwork for re-election almost immediately after being elected, but that was merely a formality.
He also recently hired Brad Parscale as a campaign adviser, getting the re-election rumors amped up.
Will He Win?
If you are looking for an answer as to Trump being able to pull off a second term, that “educated opinion” would change depending upon the publication you are reading.
Most liberal media outlets are conducting polls heavily weighted with Democrats that make it look like a bleak undertaking.
However, the word on the street seems to be quite different.
Republicans that did not vote for Trump seem to be very happy with how things are going from a legislative and economic standpoint.
The key for Trump will be in keeping things focused on real issues and not on the sideshow that seems to follow him wherever he goes.
If the Russian investigation is wrapped up before campaign season begins and he is found to be completely innocent, it may be very difficult for Democrats to stop him from holding the office for a second term.
