Donald Trump is going to be the 45th President of the United States. Even though we just went through a vicious election cycle, the 2020 presidential race is going to sneak up on his real quick. Here are a few possible candidates from both sides of the aisle that can challenge Trump after his first term.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo
Cuomo is making a push to be the face of the Democratic party now that Hillary Clinton’s time is up. He now is no longer in the shadow of Clinton and constantly challenge President-elect Trump, which will make him a household name.
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker
Many see him as the favorite to be the favorite to be the Democratic nominee in 2020. The 47-year old will take a page out of Obama’s book and connect with young voters, as he will use Twitter and social media to challenge Trump. Booker is likable and is already emerging as a leader in the Democratic party.
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren
Liberals have always seen Warren as their true spokesperson and believe she is the true voice of the middle class. Warren constantly goes head to head with Wall Street and is a fierce opponent of Donald Trump.
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders
Bernie nearly knocked off Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries and undoubtedly gained national support from Democratic and Independent voters. Would Bernie have beaten Trump? That will be one of the greatest “what ifs” in political history. One big factor for Bernie will be his age, as he will turn 79 in September of 2020.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz
Everyone knows Cruz truly never supported Donald Trump, even though at the last second he started to barely support the Republican nominee. Cruz did not endorse Trump at the RNC and has made it clear what he thinks of him. If any Republican would to try and challenge Trump for the nomination, it would be Ted Cruz.
