On Thursday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” former Colorado Governor and possible 2020 presidential candidate John Hickenlooper (D) stated that President Trump has divided the U.S. more than it has been divided “in the last 100 years.”

Hickenlooper said he is “leaning towards running. I think there’s a lot of traction we’ve gotten.”

He added, “I think, if you look at President Trump, he has divided the country worst than it’s ever been divided in its history — or at least certainly for — in the last 100 years.
