President Trump weighed-in this week on the current state of the Democratic primary process; saying it would be a “dream” to run against Beto O’Rourke in the coming months.
Trump was speaking with Fox Business Networks’ Maria Bartiromo Friday when he was asked which liberal leader he hoped to take-on in 2020.
“I mean, I’d love to have Biden. I’d love to have Bernie, I’d love to have Beto. I mean, Beto seems to be the one the press has chosen. The press seems to have chosen Beto,” said the President.
“You have Beto, so you have Beto. And Beto comes out and he says, ‘Let’s take down the wall.’ If you ever took down the wall, this country would be overrun,” he added. “When I watch Beto, I say we could dream about that.”
“But whatever it is — no, I think it’s competence. I think it’s somebody — look. When I first ran, I was never a politician — I ran, I ran on a certain platform. I’ve done far more than I said I was going to do,” concluded the Commander-in-Chief.
