While former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is now in full force, 2020 Trump campaign adviser Lara Trump is declaring that President Donald Trump’s campaign is not “nervous” about the new Democratic contender.
“Joe is finally in,” the daughter-in-law to the president said on Fox News on Thursday in regard to Biden’s launch into the crowded 2020 Democratic field early Thursday. She continued:
“Listen, at the campaign, it doesn’t really make us nervous. Joe Biden is just among a sea now of other candidates who, quite frankly, are all trying to out-Bernie one another, move so far left, become so radical. I didn’t hear any proposals for the future of this country in his announcement video that he made there. Race-baiting, as usual, as we see from the Democrats and identity politics is something I think we’ll see more of, and we saw it there.”
“But listen, Joe Biden has done this two times now, it hasn’t been successful,” Trump added. “Maybe third time’s a charm for him to at least win the nomination.”

Biden launched his 2020 White House bid early Thursday through a YouTube video after months of speculation as to when he will make his official announcement.
As for where Biden stands among the 19 other Democratic candidates, minoritiy and older adult voters are sending Biden to the early lead, with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in second place, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Wednesday.

“I only hope you have the intelligence, long in doubt, to wage a successful primary campaign,” he wrote. “It will be nasty – you will be dealing with people who truly have some very sick & demented ideas.
“But if you make it, I will see you at the Starting Gate!” Trump declared.
