While most Americans think that Donald Trump’s re-election campaign for 2020 is absolutely ridiculous (especially since his already failing presidency hasn’t even made it through his first year) Trump needs the biggest head start he can get. Thanks to a recent announcement, it looks like Trump’s chances at a second term are even more impossible than they already were.
The daughter of former Vice President Joe Biden has just announced that her father is considering a 2020 run against Trump – news that will pretty much end Trump and the Republican Party on the spot. Biden’s daughter, Ashley, said:
I hope so. He’s busier truly than ever. Right now his focus is on the [Biden] Foundation and Cancer Moonshot, as well as getting other Democrats elected. He’s not there. He’s taking it day by day after the loss of my dear beloved brother [Beau who died in 2015]…He’ll make a decision when that time comes. It’s a little ways away. A lot can happen in four years and we know this as a family. If he is in good health, knock on wood, and seeing what the landscape is at the time, yeah, I think he is considering it.
I do believe if he is in good health…He is more vivacious and has more energy in his 70s than I do in my 30s. The man is sort of supercharged. So I think, if we get to that [decision] point, yeah, I think he will do it. But a lot can happen in three years. You just don’t know. Life happens. God willing we’re healthy and strong and we go for it. You just never know.”
If Biden runs, Trump doesn’t stand a chance. The former VP has the love, support, and respect of the Democratic party, and his colleagues will rush to get behind him. He is the perfect candidate to unite the Democratic party and continue the progress that former POTUS Barack Obama had achieved. This would be an absolute nightmare for Trump, and we certainly hope to see it unfold in a few years.
