Friday on MSNBC, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said “lots” of Democrats could beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
Partial transcript as follows:
HUNT: I would like one short answer to this question. Who in the Democratic Party can beat President Trump in 2020?
SCHUMER: Lots of people.
HUNT: Lots of people. One name?
SCHUMER: I’m not going to pick a name. If he continues at the rate—
HUNT: Who is the leader of the Democratic party, you?
SCHUMER: We have a bunch of leaders. I’m the leader of the Senate and try to represent the Democratic Party, but we have a bunch of good voices. It’s much too premature to handicap 20/20. But I’ll tell you this if the president continues this way, there is even a chance we could take back the Senate.
