Donald Trump On 2020 Election Opponent: 'I'd Be Very Happy With Hillary'
Trump was quizzed on his dream candidate to run against in 2020
President Donald Trump has responded to reports of Hillary Clinton seeking to be President again in 2020 saying he'd be "very happy" with Hillary Clinton" as an opponent.
Trump was quizzed on his dream candidate to run against in 2020; he responded:
“I like her, too; I like her, too. I’d be very happy Hillary Clinton. I like them all. I don’t see anybody that I wouldn’t enjoy running against. And you know, that could happen. But I don’t see it right now.”
Clinton recently attended a recent event with Gwen Carr, the mother to the late Eric Garner, where the former first lady was introduced as "the real president."
In response to the introduction, the Democrat nodded and smiled along as if it were a reality.
According to the DC: Clinton was pressed recently on whether she would run again in 2020 to which she responded, “No…..no.” Clinton’s interviewer picked up on the momentary delay saying, “that was a pause.”
That prompted the former secretary of state to declare, “well, I’d like to be president. I think, hopefully, when we have a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021, there’s going to be so much work to be done.”
Clinton was further pressed on how much of a role she will play in the 2020 election to which she replied, “I’m not even going to even think about it until we get through this Nov. 6 election about what’s going to happen after that, but I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure we have a Democrat in the White House come January of 2021.”
US President Donald Trump gestures as he steps off Air Force One after landing at Indianapolis International Airport on October 27, 2018, in Indiana.
The failed Democratic candidate’s answer comes shortly after one of her longtime close aides Phillippe Reines revealed Clinton’s possible 2020 candidacy following an extended riff to Politico extolling the assumed benefits of Clinton.
“She is smarter than most, tougher than most, she could raise money easier than most, and it was an absolute fight to the death,” he said.
