President Trump directly challenged former Vice President Joe Biden this week, saying he “dreams” about taking on Biden should he choose to run for the White House in 2020.
The President was speaking with CBS News when he was asked to comment on his potential challengers in the Democratic Party; confirming “I’d love to have it be Biden.”
“Who do you think your Democratic opponent will be? Joe Biden says he’ll make a decision by January,” asked CBS’ Jeff Glor.
“Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That’s a dream. Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did,” said Trump.
“I’d love to have it be Biden. I think I’d like to have any one of those people that we’re talking about…You know, there’s probably – the group of seven or eight right now. I’d really like to – I’d like to run against any one of them, but Biden never by himself could never do anything,” he added.

BERNIE’S BACK? Campaign Manager Says Sanders ‘Considering’ Run in 2020
Bernie Sander’s former campaign manager told reporters Tuesday the Vermont Senator is actively considering a run for the White House against Donald Trump in 2020; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown within the Democratic Party.
According to Yahoo News, former campaign manager Jeff Weaver confirmed the ultra-liberal legislator was weighing another run for the Oval Office, saying “He is considering another run for the presidency.”
“And when the time comes, I think we’ll have an answer to that, but right now, he’s still considering it,” he added.
Weaver’s comments come two years after Senator Sanders was defeated by Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Democratic primary season; with many critics claiming Clinton “rigged” the election away from the Vermont Senator.
“Anybody who follows Bernie Sanders for one day and sees his schedule, and how rigorous it is, and how he drives everybody around him, works them into the ground with the amount of work and energy he has, I think they would understand that his chronological age is just not really a measure of his true age,” Weaver said. “[He] is an extremely energetic and vigorous person, and has more energy, I would say, than people half his age.”

DEMOCRAT DREAM: Liberal ‘Agenda’ REVEALED, Includes Free College and ‘Reparations’
A prominent Democratic donor foundation laid the groundwork for the liberal movement heading into the 2022 election cycle; calling for free college and “reparations” during an annual conference this week.
According to Fox News, an invitation to the high-caliber Democracy Alliance’s fundraiser outlined the progressive agenda for the future of the party; saying “It’s 2022 and we are celebrating policy victories across the nation: Medicare for All and Free College, and next on the agenda is Reparations.”
“Take a ride in our time machine to hear from the true political geniuses who made this happen,” the invitation adds.
The event was attended by DNC chairman Tom Perez, former governor of Virginia and possible 2020 hopeful Terry McAuliffe, and multiple members of Congress.
“Because we’re governing with gusto, we’re seeing victories up and down the ballot—including winning a governorship in Texas and putting 38 electoral votes in grasp by 2024… Stop in 2020 and 2019 when local power builders turned Arizona and Florida solidly blue and established Virginia as a progressive governance juggernaut,” the invitation predicts.
