After an astonishing win at the November elections, several Democratic leaders have preferred to remain at a distance from indulging in an unnecessary feud with President Donald Trump during the 2020 election campaign. However, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) recently presented an argument, which possibly has the potential to outrage the President as well as his supporters, but is not being viewed as mythical by many.

On Saturday, Warren made an official announcement about her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination. Besides, she made an impactful entry with the very first full day of campaigning, as she stated the justification for neglecting the presence of Trump in the election campaigns.

On Sunday, while addressing a huge crowd at the Veterans Memorial Building in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Warren stated that that Trump “may not even be President” by 2020, and that “he may not even be a free person.”

Citing that the President could soon end up in prison, Elizabeth Warren said that the Democrats must decide whether or not fall into a tiff with Trump, over “a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly” from him. She suggested that the party should question itself, “Are we going to let him use those to divide us?”

Few hours after her remark, the Massachusetts Senator justified her statements to the reporters by referring to the augmentation of probes into the President. She said that it’s not merely the Mueller investigation, but also some other “serious investigations” that are everywhere. “So we’ll see what happens,” Warren added.

President Trump and his administration were already under the investigation by the special counsel, Robert Mueller, regarding the Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections. However, in addition to that there are ongoing probing initiated by the federal prosecutors in New York and by the Democratic majority in the House of Representatives.

While the investigators and the Democrats were suspicious over the role of Russia in the 2016 elections, it was recently revealed that the FBI is also probing into whether Trump has been assisting Moscow interests or working under its influence. The escalating inquiries into the President has even raised questions over his presidency.

Although the investigations have already deteriorated the reputation of the President, Warren’s statement came as a direct jostle against Trump. Apart from her, Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) on Saturday suggested that if he won the Democratic nomination, he is uncertain if he would have to face Trump in the general election.

“Should I be our nominee and Trump also be the nominee — I’m not sure if he will be — but if he is the nominee, you will see the toughest, strongest person standing against him,” Booker said. “Whatever he wants to throw at me, bring it.”

The political shift in the United States has driven optimism amongst the Democrats regarding the 2020 presidential elections. While Trump remains tangled in multiple investigations into his credibility as the President, the Democrats are certain that he is not even close to the candidacy. Besides, the enormous support that they received in the midterm elections has also raised hope. The staining presidency of Trump and the soaring Democratic support in the country might certainly prompt the most interesting elections in history.

  1. […] Amidst the already existing controversies of 2016 US elections, President Donald Trump has been snapped with yet another allegation that tainted his image further. A former Trump campaign worker accused the then-Republican candidate of sexual harassment, bringing the issue in limelight of political debate. Alva Johnson, who lives in Alabama, alleged that Trump had kissed her forcibly during the recent presidential race. Additionally, she also affirmed of experiencing race and sex discrimination, citing of being an African-American woman on the campaign. The ex-staffer said she was paid less than the white men working with her on same post. The claim has been strongly denied by the White House and some individuals. However, four people claim that Johnson informed them about the incident afterward, while two others who were present during the incident said that they didn’t see it. On Monday, Johnson filed a lawsuit in Florida claiming that in August 2016, Trump grabbed her hand and forcibly kissed her on lips inside an RV in Florida, without her consent. The lawsuit alleges that Johnson smelled a rat, as she “noticed that Defendant Trump was watching her and appeared to be trying to make eye contact with her.” Later, the Secret Service notified Trump about his next rally, when Johnson urged him “to go in there and ‘kick ass’.” As per the complaint, Trump grasped her hand in that moment and appreciated her efforts. As the accuser realized that “Defendant Trump was trying to kiss her on the mouth”, she turned her head to avoid it. “Defendant Trump kissed her anyway, and the kiss landed on the corner of her mouth,” the lawsuit states. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post, in a statement to which, Johnson told, “I immediately felt violated because I wasn’t expecting it or wanting it.” She added, “I can still see his lips coming straight for my face.” According to the reports, the lawsuit alleges that the incident was witnessed by several individuals, including then-State Director Karen Giorno, then-Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, as well as the Regional Directors Earl “Tony” Ledbetter, Mitch Tyner and Nick Corvino. Amongst these, the allegations have been completely ridiculed by Bondi, whereas, Giorno didn’t state anything yet. On the other hand, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders also called the accusation “absurd on its face”. In a statement, Sanders said, “This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eye witness accounts.” While the claims are not yet justified, they have in a way blemished Trump’s already deteriorating reputation, both on personal as well as political grounds. However, as the Presidential elections are nearing, the allegations can also be perceived as a mere political agenda. Yet, considering Trump’s past, the probability of the complaint being legit are still more. As the issue seems to have a long future, it is unpredictable whether or not it will impact the 2020 elections. […]
