As several prominent Democrats continue to announce their run in the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump isn’t shying from his criticism of the current Democrat field, including Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.).
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, where no one is left behind,” Booker said in his announcement.
In an interview that will air on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday, moderator Margaret Brennan asked the president about Booker’s announcement to run.
“He’s got no chance,” Trump responded, not stopping short of showing his distaste for the Democratic senator. “I say no chance.”
When asked why Booker has “no chance” in 2020, the president said: “Because I know him. I don’t think he has a chance.”
Trump added that he didn’t see anyone suited to take him on in 2020.
“I’m not impressed with their group,” he said, blasting the Democrats.

Booker’s announcement is the latest for the Democratic Party for 2020, joining others such as Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) who have officially announced their intentions to run.
As IJR Red reported, “The View” co-host Meghan McCain told Booker on the show that “when I think of you now, I think of ‘I am Spartacus.’ And I don’t know if that’s the best reflection of you.” McCain was referencing comments Booker made during now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. Booker told “The View” that it was one of his “prouder moments” but claimed the clip was “twisted.”
