After just one year of President Trump in office, America is ready for a change. In fact, several lawmakers have moved to impeach Trump on the grounds that he is not fit to lead among other concerns.
What’s more, there is currently an on-going investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to the Russian interference during the 2016 presidential campaign that has already lead to several indictments of former Trump administration members.
At 39%, Trump’s approval rating is the lowest of any president in modern American history during their first year in Office. America is clearly not satisfied with who is running the White House at this point in time.
However, moves have already been made for the Democrats to take back Congress. Many progressive groups are looking to the 2018 midterms to flip some seats in Congress. They already the momentum from several historical wins over the past year, such as Alabama electing Democrat Sen. Doug Jones to Office, making him the first Democrat to hold public office in the traditionally red state in over twenty years.
But what about 2020? Who will the Democrats get to defeat Trump? Some speculated that media mogul Oprah Winfrey would but she announced earlier this week that she doesn’t “have the DNA” to do it.
The Democrats have floated names like former President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. But it was Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who gathered several of his top political advisers in Washington this past weekend to officially start discussing running against Trump in 2020, according to Politico.
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton beat Sanders in the primary but many argue that it should have been him. Now it looks like the Vermont Senator is seriously considering launching a White House bid. Would you like to see Sanders run against Trump? Could he win?
