Sanders and Biden Lead Crowded 2020 Dem Nominees


With the announcement of the 2020 Democratic National Convention taking place in Milwaukee, all eyes are on the candidates to see who will become the nominee and take on President Trump in the upcoming election cycle.

Though the Democratic field has a number of well-known politicians that have thrown their name in the ring to face-off with President Trump, it seems that Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden are the front runners in the race, and the latter hasn’t even made an announcement.

However, it has been rumored that Biden will be making an announcement soon, but nothing has been set in stone.

In addition, since Senator Sanders’ 2016 Presidential run, he’s faced backlash over ushering in a rise of what some people deem sympathy towards Socialism.

In response and in commenting on the political climate in Venezuela, President Trump has reinforced the message that the United States will never be a Socialist country, and he has vowed to support Juan Guaidó and the country of Venezuela in order to ensure that the country bounces back from the tyrannical Maduro regime.

And, while candidates like Kamala Harris are also in the running, former Vice President Joe Biden has been making waves over what seems like an impending Presidential run.

Both Biden and President Trump have shared back and forth verbal jabs in the past, and one exchange even implied that they would get into a fist fight.

Nonetheless, Biden is sure to enter the race with momentum should he decide to make another run at the Presidency. And, while Democrats may respond with cheers, all eyes will be on President Trump to see the response that he’ll bring to the table.
