Many Democrats consider Beto O’Rourke to be the strongest candidate to take on Donald Trump.
And the Texas Democrat has openly flirted with a Presidential bid.
Now O’Rourke just dropped this big hint about his 2020 plans to challenge President Trump.
Donald Trump traveled to El Paso, Texas on Monday to hold a rally designed to ratchet up pressure on Democrats to vote to fund construction of new barrier fencing as part of a border security package.
Beto O’Rourke used to represent El Paso when he was in Congress and announced he will deliver a response to the President’s remarks.
Failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke will rally Monday against President Donald Trump in El Paso, Texas.
O’Rourke is joining the “March for Truth” campaign sponsored by several leftist groups protesting the wall and Trump’s political rally also scheduled for El Paso, Texas on Monday. More than 60 local musicians plan to also join the event.
“We will meet lies and hate with the truth and a vision for the future from the U.S.-Mexico border,” O’Rourke said in a Facebook video on Saturday.
As he explores a run for president in 2020, O’Rourke has condemned Trump’s demand for a wall on the southern border.
O’Rourke already blasted the wall as “racist.”
And his answer to the crisis of hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens trying to enter America each year is a mass amnesty that could create up to 10 million new citizens.
That is not a serious solution.
Going back to 1986, every time amnesty is tried it only results in higher levels of illegal immigration.
That doesn’t matter to O’Rourke.
O’Rourke staking out such radical left-wing positions on immigration only means one thing.
He is running for the Democrat Party Presidential nomination.
