Despite the fact that his presidency is by far the worst thing that America has ever had to endure (and his approval rating continues to show it), Donald Trump continues to set his sights on 2020.
Trump wanted a second term the very minute he began his first term. His re-election campaign launched so early in his presidency, it was embarrassing. But even as his presidency suffers loss after loss and he continuously proves his incompetency, Trump continues to dream about 2020 so he can prove to himself that he is just as good as his predecessor, Barack Obama.
Obama has long been the person that Trump is most afraid and jealous of, and Trump is going to be devastated when he finds out what Obama’s been up to lately.
According to Politico, Obama has been busying himself in private meetings with possible Democratic candidates for 2020. So far, there have been nine one-on-one sessions, some of which were with major Democrats such as former Vice President Joe Biden, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D).
Obama has kept these meetings quiet for the most part and will not endorse a candidate until a nominee has come forward.
One person who was knowledgeable of the meetings said:
The president was generous with his time and advice, and he was excited to talk about the future.”
As Obama is gearing up to play a major role in the 2020 race for the Democratic Party, Trump is more screwed than he’s ever been. Not only will Obama be hitting the campaign trail hard, but the former president intends to be a “sounding board” and someone who can provide guidance to Democrats.
This is everything Trump is afraid of. America loves Obama and he’s an extremely influential speaker. Trump – as well as any contending Republican – knows that having Obama play an active role in the election could kill all hope for the GOP.
