Hillary Clinton Quietly Advising Biden, Klobuchar on How to 'Beat Trump' in 2020
Meetings allegedly took place at former secretary of state's home in Washington, DC,
Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton held secret meetings with former Vice President Joe Biden and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar to discuss beating President Donald Trump in 2020, according to a source close to the former secretary of state.
The meetings allegedly took place at Clinton's home in Washington, DC, which focused on Biden and Klobuchar's possible 2020 bids.
Clinton met with Klobuchar before she announced her candidacy on February 10 in Minneapolis.
Biden is still in the process of considering a bid but is said to be moving closer to the decision.
Their spokespeople confirmed the meeting between Clinton, Biden, and Klobuchar.
The potential Democratic presidential candidates meetings with Clinton suggests that they see a value in her endorsement, despite her crushing defeat in 2016.
According to a report from CNN in January, Clinton also met with Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to talk about 2020.
The assumption is that Clinton will sit out the Democratic primary and get behind the eventual nominee.
Democracy should mean free and fair access to the ballot box. But in America, voting rights are under attack. I’m honored to have been invited to join the 54th Bridge Crossing Jubilee in Selma, Alabama on March 3rd to march for voting rights with @liftourvote. #liftourvote2020— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) February 15, 2019
Former President Barack Obama is also coaching Democratic presidential election candidates on how to "beat Trump" in 2020, according to reports.
Obama has not yet commented publicly on the Democrats vying for the 2020 nomination.
But a report from The New York Times suggests he has been privately coaching on how to take on President Donald Trump
According to the Times, key Obama-era officials held a sort-of "audition" in Washington, D.C., where they spoke to 2020 hopefuls like "Senators Kamala Harris (D-CA), Cory Booker (D-NJ), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH)."
Tuesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) announced on Tuesday he is making another bid for the 2020 race.
Sanders announced in an interview with Vermont Public Radio which is set to be released in full later Tuesday morning.
“We began the political revolution in the 2016 campaign, and now it's time to move that revolution forward,” he told the radio station.
