President Donald Trump ridiculed the expanding Democrat field of 2020 presidential candidates on Tuesday.
“I’m looking at the competition, you sort of dream about competition like that, but who knows?” he said.
The president commented on the state of the 2020 presidential race during a visit to a natural gas plant in Lousiana.
Trump listed off some of his rivals, noting Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke.
“I’ve got Boot Edge-Edge! I got ’em all, I got Beto, Beto is falling fast, what the hell happened?”
Trump referred to a Vanity Fair article where O’Rourke was quoted as saying his was “born” to be in the presidential fight for 2020.
“Remember about four weeks ago? He said, ‘I was made for this,'” Trump said. “He was made for it, he was made to fall like a rock.”
Trump also ripped O’Rourke in response to reports about rebooting his presidential campaign.
“That generally doesn’t work out too well…” Trump said. “History has said that that’s trouble.”
Trump also mocked Vice President Joe Biden, who recently launched his campaign, enjoying a big boost over his Democrat rivals.
“I don’t know what the hell happened to Biden, what happened to him? … that doesn’t look like the guy I knew, what happened to him?” Trump said.
Referring to Democrat-Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump said that the had the “wrong kind of energy.”
“And you know Bernie’s crazy, but Bernie’s got a lot more energy than Biden, so you never know,” he said.
He also referred to Sen. Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas” but admitted that she was “probably out” of the race.
“Boy, you got some beauties there, 350 million people and that’s the best we could do?” Trump asked. “I don’t think so. Even as Democrats, I could pick better than that.”
