Trump calls out O'Rourke 'hand movement'

  • Beto O’Rourke to Announce 2020 Presidential Bid

O'Rourke said that he plans to travel the country and "listen to those who I seek to serve, to understand from your perspective how we can best meet these challenges". "That's part of the problem, and I'm a white man".

Fellow Texan Julian Castro distributed a list of Texas Democrats who had already gotten behind the former federal housing chief's campaign.

O'Rourke is in Iowa for three days of campaigning, which includes canvassing for a Democratic state Senate candidate in an upcoming special election, running a 5K race and taping an episode of a local political podcast.

Following months of speculation, O'Rourke announced that he would be seeking the Democratic nomination for the presidency in 2020 and opted for his campaign slogan to be "Beto for America", which boldly appears on his newly-minted campaign website. He visited with students in the key swing state of Wisconsin. I tell O'Rourke that perhaps he's simply too normal to be president. Trump doesn't seem to have a solid grasp on O'Rourke yet, while he's branded Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" and Bernie Sanders as "crazy", O'Rourke is largely a new character for him. Both events in the Texas city that borders Mexico drew thousands and put the two men's divergent positions on the border wall on sharp display.

Klobuchar was not the only 2020 candidate to welcome O'Rourke on Thursday.

Budget Chief Defends Spending Cuts, Strong Growth Projections
The cost-saving covers some of the mandatory programs such as Medicaid, Medicare, and programs on federal health care. Nevertheless, the budget also includes an additional $8.6 billion to construct walls right along the Mexican border.

Like progressives such as Sanders, O'Rourke premised much of his appeal in the Senate race on his refusal to accept money from political action committees and instead raised $80 million from small-dollar donors - a national record for a Senate bid.

O'Rourke, 47, served three terms in Congress representing a region of West Texas along the USA border with Mexico.

Acording to the Post, the former congressman's GOP ties are likely to become an issue as he enters a crowded Democratic presidential primary field that has leaned leftward.

O'Rourke's 2018 Senate campaign didn't fit the usual mold.

After Cruz defeated O'Rourke, the former congressman revealed that he was mulling over running for president in 2020, despite repeatedly claiming that it was a "definitive no" regarding whether he would run or not.
