Trump Takes Shot at 2020 Candidate, Invokes Obama Along The Way

The President isn’t playing around anymore.

President Trump isn’t quite sure who his 2020 election opponent will be just yet, but that hasn’t stopped him from running roughshod over the entire field on Twitter.

Trump is known for his social media presence, and his ability to boil down his political opponents to little more than nicknames at the drop of a hat.  This worked wonders for him during the 2016 election, in which his doling out of mischievous monikers helped to instill a sense of character to each and every politician who looked to usurp him.

For the 2020 election, it seems that little has changed for Trump, tactically, as he continues to expound his disdain for “Crazy” Bernie Sanders and “Sleepy” Joe Biden.

Biden does appear to be running away with the 2020 candidacy at this early stage, and that sort of enthusiasm has the President reaching a little deeper into his bag in order to diss the former Vice President this week.

President Trump ramped up his criticism Monday of “Sleepy Joe Biden” as the former vice president rises in the polls, saying former President Barack Obama took him off the “trash heap” back in 2008 — and China is rooting for him.

“Looks like Bernie Sanders is history. Sleepy Joe Biden is pulling ahead and think about it, I’m only here because of Sleepy Joe and the man who took him off the 1% trash heap, President O! China wants Sleepy Joe BADLY!” Trump tweeted.

The president’s tweet comes as Biden climbs in the 2020 Democratic presidential polls. A Fox News Poll last week showed Biden leading the crowded field with 35 percent, and Sen. Sanders, I-Vt., in second position with 17 percent.

Biden’s campaign has so far been centered around framing the 2020 election as a fight between himself and Donald Trump, opting to assuage democratic constituents into falling for this “inevitability”.  Of course, this is a similar strategy to that of Hillary Clinton back in 2016, and we all know how that ended up.

Elizabeth Warren Asked How She’ll Pay For Her Policies; She Says ‘There’s Always Money’

Published

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been asked repeatedly how she plans to pay for something like Medicare for All, and each time the question comes up, it seems as if she can’t give a solid answer. Warren recently dismissed the idea that her ability to provide funding for the massive expansion of federal programs she wants to make law will be hindered by finite amounts of cash available. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Warren made the comments during an interview in November with Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association. Garcia had asked Warren about increasing funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and how that might be paid for. “So the answer is yes. And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us,” Warren answered. “A budget is about priorities. … The way I see it, there’s always, come on, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?” https://youtu.be/X7PsSTivy1E Warren’s approach to financial questions about her ambitious policies has been one of the biggest sources of criticism of her campaign. She has insisted, for example, that Medicare for All can be implemented without taxes being raised on middle class Americans, partially by reducing the amount of money allocated toward military spending. Most of the other Democratic candidates running for president have come out and criticized Warren for not being totally honest about where the money for her programs is going to come from. Warren has waved off these criticisms, saying they are just rehashing Republican talking points.

Michelle Obama Weighs In On Trump Impeachment; Says ‘It’s Surreal’

Published

Former First Lady Michelle Obama recently opened up and expressed her thoughts on the current impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, stating she feels the whole thing is “surreal.” Obama recently conducted an interview with NBC’s “Today Show” where she spoke with Jenna Bush Hager. During the course of the interview, Obama said she is optimistic the division ripping through America will eventually subside. Here’s more from Fox News: The daughter of former President George W. Bush asked Obama whether the country can come back from the divisive situation unfolding in Washington, D.C., as polls show Americans largely split along party lines on impeachment. “It’s surreal, I think,” said Obama, speaking from Vietnam, where she is on a trip to promote the education of young girls. “For the last impeachment hearing [in 1998], a lot of young people weren’t around for that. I don’t think people know what to make of it. But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah. “We’ve seen worse times, we’ve seen tough times in this country. You know, we’ve gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we’ve gone through Jim Crow, and we’ve always come out stronger. And that’s what we have to continue to believe because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well, that’s not fair to this next generation that’s coming before us that are counting on us to get this right,” Obama continued. Obama said the country should not view the impeachment inquiry as a battle of “us or them” or of Democrats against Republicans. https://twitter.com/TODAYshow/status/1204019184532885507 Obama concluded by saying, “We are all here as part of this country. We all want the same things, it’s just sometimes that gets lost in the noise.”
