Ilhan Omar: ‘I Don’t Know’ if any Democrat can beat Trump in 2020

In a recent appearance on BET Digital’s #BlackCoffeeLive, Democrat and Minnesota Congressman Ilhan Omar expressed her uncertainty of whether any of the Democratic presidential candidates have the ability to defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

When asked by Marc Lomant Hill, one of the hosts of the show, if she had endorsed any of the presidential candidates yet, Omar replied, “I have not, and I don’t intend on making an endorsement any time soon. I think it’s a little too early. There are lots of important conversations that need to be had about particular policies.”

“Everybody has ideas that are closely aligned and so it’s within the details often that you get to pick your candidate,” she added.

Omar continued, “As a policy nerd, those kinds of things really matter to me. I also think there is this question of how do we defeat the occupant of the White House? What does that process really look like? How do we not only energize our base, but also get to the soul of our country and reclaim it?”

“I don’t know if, if we have gotten that, that candidate yet,” she said.

Following the first round of debates where 20 Democratic candidates faced off against one another, a series of polls have been released which have shown a steep drop in support for former Vice President Joe Biden, with an increase of support for Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.

According to a RealClearPolitics average of recent national Democratic Polls, Biden remains in the lead with 27.2 percent, Sanders in second with 14.8 percent, Harris in third with 14.7 percent, and Warren in fourth with 13.5 percent.

The 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries have shown the American people that the party hardly resembles what it was just four years ago. The party has clearly and drastically shifted to the far-left.

The party has veered so far to the left that almost all of the 20 candidates running in the primaries have outwardly expressed their support for providing taxpayer-funded healthcare to illegal immigrants for free.

That’s right. Democratic candidates want to give your hard earned money over to illegals with absolutely right to be in the county.

If you’ve been following the Democratic Party over the last year and a half, it’s clear that they care more about illegal immigrants than they do for our veterans and the vast swaths of Americans who’re dying from opioid addiction.
