President Donald Trump is taking a bowling ball to the crowded field of 2020 Democratic candidates.
With over 20 Democratic hopefuls running for the 2020 presidential election, the president is wondering, “What the hell happened to them?”
The president traveled to Lousiana on Tuesday to attend the energy infrastructure event and speak at the Cameron LNG Export Facility.
While delivering his speech, the president took swipes at his potential opponents for 2020 — echoing earlier remarks at his reelection campaign at a Florida rally on May 8.

President Trump: "We have a young man, Buttigieg. Buttigieg. They say 'edge-edge.' He’s got a great chance. He’ll be great. He’ll be great representing against Pres. Xi of China. It’ll be great. I want to be in that room. I want to watch that one." https://t.co/nn5y04C0hB pic.twitter.com/IHZNgdt6Pl

“I’m looking at the competition,” Trump told the crowd on Tuesday. “You sort of dream about competition like that but who knows.”
“Remember about four weeks ago, he said I was made for this,” Trump added. “He was made for it. He was made to fall like a rock. What happened to him? But he’s tried to restart his campaign. That generally doesn’t work out too well.”
As IJR Blue reported, O’Rourke saw his poll numbers take a tumble and is currently sitting in sixth place in the Democratic field. He recognized on Monday that he “can do a better job, also, of talking to a national audience beyond the town halls we are having.”
Trump also asked, “What the hell happened to Biden?” adding, “I’m looking, I said that doesn’t look like the guy I knew. What happened to him?”

“350 million people and that’s the best we could do. I don’t think so,” Trump said. “Even as Democrats, I could pick better than that.”
