Christie: Booker Could be Problem for Trump in 2020

Christie: Booker Could be Problem for Trump in 2020

"The president said before that Cory Booker as mayor of Newark ran the city into the ground, so I'll let those comments stand", the White house counselor later told reporters. Kamala Harris, spiritual author Marianne Williamson, and businessman Andrew Yang.

But Mr Booker will face tough competition in the party's primary, with a number of hotly-tipped candidates having already announced their intentions to run.

Mr Booker released classified documents relating to President Trump's Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh previous year and vehemently opposed his nomination, stating that supporters were "complicit in evil".

While Booker attempted to channel the Civil Rights movement, his announcement video arguably represents the more divisive identity politics of the modern Left, rather than the inclusive identity politics of Martin Luther King, Jr.'s movement.

Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey said Friday that he will seek the Democratic nomination for president, adding his name to a growing and increasingly diversified field of 2020 candidates intent on taking on President Trump.

In a poll conducted by CNN in December, Booker was the favorite of 5 percent of likely Democratic voters nationwide, behind former Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former U.S. Representative Beto O'Rourke of Texas.

In the Senate, Booker has been a strong advocate of overhauling the criminal justice system.

It will be hard to find a more gifted orator in the 2020 Democratic field than the New Jersey senator.

In addition to Booker, Democratic California Sen.

In running as a relative newcomer to Washington, Booker follows in the footsteps of another black American politician, Barack Obama, who left his Senate seat and ultimately won the presidency in 2008.

Booker declares his goal to build an America "where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride", a suggestion that political leaders should be members of minority groups, in order to build the pride of such minorities - especially African-Americans.

In some ways, Booker is a political heir to former President Jimmy Carter, who in the aftermath of the Nixon administration pledged a government "as good and honest and decent and compassionate and filled with love as are the American people". "But I think the reward is higher, because that means more if you can inspire, versus anger", Sterzenbach said.

At times, he has caught Trump's attention.

In turn, Booker has said he "loves" Trump as part of his Christian faith and that his party should not make opposition to the president the centerpiece of its message. "Remember he was pretending he was breaking with protocol in this Senate, that he was going to release confidential emails, and I believe it was Senator [John] Cornyn of Texas, reminded him that those had already been released".

"He's a person who operates between instincts, gut and faith", said Rep. Cedric Richmond, a Louisiana Democrat who's the most recent former chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus.
