Who will compete for Trump in the elections-2020
There are still two years before the US presidential election, yet the number of Democrats announcing plans to run is growing every day.
Six senators have already entered the race, including Bernie Sanders, who already tried to be elected president in 2016.
In contrast, Hillary Clinton did not go to the polls for the second time. Abandoned the race and ex-mayor of New York, billionaire Michael Bloomberg.
“Although there could be no higher honor for me than serving as president, my highest duty as a citizen is to help my country with everything I can, right now,” wrote Bloomberg on Twitter.
The billionaire admitted that he is more interested in “working up his sleeves,” rather than talking about his ideas, knowing that the Democratic Party may not nominate him for president.
“I’m confident I could beat Trump in the general election,” Bloomberg said. "But I understand that it will be difficult to win the Democratic nomination with such competition."
Democrat Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump in 2016, also refused to participate in the elections.
“I’m not running, but I’ll continue to work, speak and stand for what I believe in,” she said on News 12. Clinton is the first and so far the only female presidential candidate in American politics from one of the two main political parties in the United States, which reached universal suffrage. In an interview with News 12, she said she did not think she would run for any elections again.
The last politician in US history who successfully elected to the presidency after losing an election was Richard Nixon. He lost to John F. Kennedy in 1960, but won the elections in 1968 and 1972.
“Clinton has confirmed that she will not run for president in 2020, she is giving up the third fight for the White House. Sorry, does that mean I won't have to compete with her again? She will be sorely missed! ” - President Donald Trump commented on Twitter on the refusal of the former rival from the race.
In response, Clinton posted a gif from the comedy Mean Girls, where the heroine asks the question - "Why are you so obsessed with me?"
