Trump Mocks Beto O'Rourke's Hand Gestures: 'Is He Crazy?'

Trump Mocks Beto O'Rourke's Hand Gestures: 'Is He Crazy?'

US Democrat Beto O'Rourke has said that he is running for president in 2020.

The "born to be in it" comment has already garnered some backlash on social media, as issues of inequality and privilege are being debated in what is already the most crowded and diverse Democratic primary field in recent history. And it remains to be seen how he will fare in a Democratic nominating battle with a heavy emphasis on progressive policies and diversity. O'Rourke will have to make a robust argument about why Democrats should instead back a white man.

"Whereas Obama is from the tail end of the baby boom, Beto O'Rourke is quintessentially Generation X, weaned on Star Wars and punk rock and priding himself on authenticity over showmanship and a healthy skepticism of the mainstream". Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. He will hold a launch event in his hometown of El Paso, Texas, on March 30.

Robert is O'Rourke's legal first name. "The challenges we face right now, the interconnected crises in our democracy, and our climate have never been greater".

O'Rourke became a national star during his 2018 Senate bid a year ago, despite the fact that he was defeated by incumbent Ted Cruz. He didn't hire traditional political consultants and pollsters, didn't take any PAC money and refused to go negative against Cruz.

Building a national presidential operation, however, is a different matter.




He wrote: "I'm really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents".

"Amy and I are happy to share with you that I'm running to serve you as the next president of the United States of America", O'Rourke said in a video announcing his candidacy.

Last month, he appeared to try to separate himself further from that wing of the party when he pointedly called himself a capitalist. "There's still an open question as to what Democrats are going to do in the U.S. Senate race and I think having a viable candidate in that race will also help other candidates down ballot". Bernie Sanders, Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen.

When asked if he's concerned about anyone who's challenging him for the White House in 2020, Trump shrugged it off by promising he'll take on whoever the Democratic nominee turns out to be.

Also teasing at a 2020 presidential campaign is former Vice President Joe Biden, who met with former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams on Thursday. "Is he insane or is that just the way he acts?"
