Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey has just announced his bid for the 2020 presidency.
As of now, we have an interesting line up for the 2020 crown. Recently, Kamala Harris announced her presidential run. And prior to her announcement, Elizabeth Warren even hinted at running against Trump in the 2020 Presidential campaign. And it looks as though Cory Booker is looking to add his name to a diverse and qualified group of candidates.
Booker made the announcement via email with supporting visuals to encapsulate his message. In short, he believes:
The history of our nation is defined by collective action; by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists; of those born here and those who chose America as home; of those who took up arms to defend our country, and those who linked arms to challenge and change it.”
But, Booker’s announcement should come as no surprise! According to the Washington Post, he has been traveling extensively to early-voting states for months. He even visited South Carolina on MLK day, a state which dominates in black votes. But he going to need more than black votes to win the masses. Although his donor list includes the likes of Ivanka Trump and Mark Zuckerberg, conservatives have ridiculed his “carefully manufactured” image.
He is the opposite of what the “President of the United States” should like. He is a black, single, New Jersey native whose sexuality was questioned by the Philadelphia Inquirer. But, if you ask us, he sounds perfect! But, only time will tell if he is for the people or the corporate state. There is no in between.
But, what do you think of his announcement? Can he take down Trump in the 2020 race? Please comment below and for more news, keep it locked to hypefresh.co!
