Outspoken Senator and anti-Trump crusader Cory Booker officially announced his 2020 presidential campaign Friday; becoming the latest left-wing legislator with the hopes of taking-on President Trump in the months ahead.
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood; where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame,” said Booker.

“It is not a matter of can we, it’s a matter of do we have the collective will, the American will? I believe we do. Together, we will channel our common pain back into our common purpose. Together, America, we will rise,” added the 49-year-old lawmaker.
CORY BOOKER: If You’re Not ‘DEEPLY DISTURBED’ by Trump You Don’t ‘LOVE’ America
Liberal senator and possible 2020 hopeful Cory Booker lashed-out at Trump supporters Wednesday, telling a packed audience if you’re not “deeply disturbed” by the direction of the country then you don’t “love” America.
Booker was speaking at a liberal rally this week when he slammed GOP voters across the country, bizarrely suggesting if the country “hasn’t broken your heart” then you’re not patriotic enough.
"If this country hasn’t broken your heart, you don’t love her enough,” Sen. Booker says at #WeThePeople18 summit.

“If this country hasn’t broken your heart, you don’t love her enough,” Booker said. “If you’re not deeply disturbed by what’s coming, you got to check your own love.”
“Folks are trying to divide us and cut us up, pin us against each other: poor white folks against poor black folks, poor brown folks against poor black folks,” Booker added. “We need to understand this is one nation, indivisible, with one destiny.”

'GET A GRIP': GOP Senator Tells Cory Booker to ‘GET A GRIP’ After Anti-Trump Meltdown
Republican Senator John Cornyn implored Cory Booker to settle down after his most recent anti-Trump meltdown this week; urging the liberal legislator to “get a grip” after he called Justice Kavanaugh supporters “complicit in evil.”
Cornyn was speaking on the Senate floor Wednesday when he called-on Booker to calm down after his recent tirade; adding that “everybody’s trying to out do everybody else.”
“I thought that would pretty much take the cake until I saw a report this morning that one of our colleagues across the aisle said that supporting Judge Kavanaugh would make you ‘complicit in evil,’” said Cornyn.
“It’s hard to take statements like that seriously. It’s completely unhinged and detached from any reality […] My advice to some of our friends across the aisle is get a grip, get a grip,” he added.
