Election 2020: Field Grows
News Bytes 02/12/2019 134 Comments

Last weekend, two more candidates joined the list of Democrats jostling to be president: Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar.

On Saturday, Warren made her bid official. At the kickoff, she condemned a “middle-class squeeze” that allows “too little accountability for the rich, too little opportunity for everyone else.” Warren hopes the message will help quiet the controversy over her past claims to Native American heritage. (Years ago, Warren filled out one or more identification cards claiming she was part of the Cherokee Nation, a claim the tribe rejects.)

Hours later, President Donald Trump tweeted, calling Warren “Pocahontas” and saying he would see her “on the campaign TRAIL.”

Warren quickly fired back: “By the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person.” Her comments referenced investigations surrounding the president.

During her Sunday announcement, Klobuchar told the crowd, “As your president, I will look you in the eye. I will tell you what I think. I will focus on getting things done.”

Klobuchar didn’t utter Trump’s name during her speech. But she did bemoan “foreign policy by tweet.”

In turn, Trump pointed out the irony of Klobuchar’s stance on global warming and the arrival of a snowstorm during her outdoor announcement. He tweeted that Klobuchar talked proudly “of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures.”

The list of Democrats already in the race features several well-known senators—Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Some believe the field could soon expand to include former Vice President Joe Biden and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. With the Democratic National Convention still over 17 months away, these candidates are in for a marathon race to the presidential finish line.

Wow, there's more people tweeting than the birds. Ha! I kill myself :)


Giving a statement on global warming in a snow storm is pretty funny and coincidental. You think God is trying to tell us something?


LOL Luke maybe so! :)


LOL that is funny : ) I personally think that global warming is not happening, and that the earth's temperature just fluctuates, but that is getting away from the point of this article : )


You are indeed funny Luke

uh oh

it sounds kinda like Warren is threatening trump I get that people should be prepared but the election is still over a year away


At least Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is too young to run for presidential office. We are saved from the socialist AOC till (she most likely runs in) 2024. What has this country come to? It's crazy nine democrats have announced that they are definitely running in 2020 and that a few more are "considering" (i.e. Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders). That is funny that is started snowing while Amy Klobuchar announcing her running (and while talking about global warming:-))

I think Bernie Sanders is

I think Bernie Sanders is Independent.

@Luke F.

No. There is a difference between weather and climate.

@Anna C.

Why is it crazy that nine democrats will be running? The more people running for president the better.


It is this kind of attitude and ignorance that will lead to problems later. I hope nobody seriously thinks "It's cold outside" is anything more than a joke of an argument against global warming.

@ Luke F

I was thinking the same thing, lol.




I believe Alexandria O. Cortez is NUTS. I mean, really! She should have been laughed out of New York! (Btw she's NY's representative!)




"I agree"


not really

@ Faith B

Do you think he is better than Washington, or Lincoln, or Roosevelt?(just curious)


Democrats. Enough Said. O. Cortez, enough said.


While I think the joke about global warming is really funny...Zack's right, it's not a good argument against global warming. I don't believe in global warming, but you can't just look outside your window to check if it's really happening. It's much more complicated than the weather in just one, or even several, locations.
I also agree with Zack that the more people running the better. Although at this point I'm hoping President Trump will get in again, it's great to have a bunch of other candidates--it makes for some good competition and a wide variety to choose from.

think about Global Warming this way...

Think about it this way, do you think humans can ruin the Earth? No. Only the one who created it can ruin it. That 's all I am going to say.


God won't make the Earth come to an end until he's ready


Read: It' s official: President Donald J. Trump

trump will win in 2020

@Meg M.

Yes, humans can't destroy the world at the moment, but we could certainly eradicate all human life. We shouldn't say "oh don't worry, God will save us." Because we are the instruments for Gods work. There have been threats to humanity in the past, and the solution was never to "let God save us" the solution was to take action and let God work through us.


He's right up there with them Sarah, just look at the numbers. If Trump wins in 2020 can he run again in 2028?

@ JT S

No, if he gets reelected, then he will have served two terms, which is the most a person can be president.

Actually F.D.R. served for

Actually F.D.R. served for more than 2 terms.

A.R. @ JT S and Claire

President Roosevelt served for three and part of a fourth term, but shortly after his death Congress passed a constitutional amendment (the 22nd amendment) that says you can only be elected as president twice.


President Donald Trump tweeted, calling Warren “Pocahontas” and saying he would see her “on the campaign TRAIL.”

I agree.

I agree.

I watched her in my living room.

I watched her on TV.


I hope we get a female president! #Feminist


My brother was the one who said that Donald Trump would win
in 2020. Just so you know. It wasn't me.


Me to but it states very clearly in the bible that the men are to lead and the women to follow

@ Leah P

I agree.

Female president...

It would be nice to have a female president.but not a 20 year old SOSHALIST!!!!!!!!!


That's just my opinion.

@Leah P

I agree

@Leah P.

In the new testament, it also directly tells you to...
1. Greet one another with a holy kiss (Romans 16;16)
2. A woman ought to have a veil on her head. (1 Corinthians 11:10)
3. Wash one another's feet (John 13:14)
4. It is disgraceful for a woman to speak in church (1 Corinthians 14:35)
5. Abstain from eating blood (Acts 15:29)
6. Anoint the sick with oil (James 5:14)
7. Permit no woman to teach men (1 Timothy 2:9)
8. Observe the lords supper (1 Corinthians 11:24)
9. Preach two by two (Mark 6:7)
10. Eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience (1 Corinthians 10:27)
11. Prohibit women from wearing braided hair, gold, pearls, or expensive clothes. (1 Timothy 2:9)
12. Do not look for a wife (1 Corinthians 7:27)
13. Refrain from public prayer (Mathew 6:5-6)
14. Speak in tongues privately and prophesy publicly (1 Corinthians 14:4)
15. Lift up holy hands in prayer (1 Timothy 2:8)
16: set aside money for the poor on the first day of every week (1 Corinthians 16:1-2)
Just because you don't follow all of these doesn't make you a bad christian, because some things that were important at the time of the new testament (like the verses about women you mentioned) Are no longer important now.

Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris would be president, but Chuck Norris never runs.

if global warming

If global warming was real, then why are we having record colds in Michigan???
FYI the world flood wasn't global warming either


I think that women should respect men, but men should also respect women.

@Zack w

About your number 4.
That vers is speaking about church at that time, the women sat on one side and the men on the other so if a woman wanted to say something to her husband then she had to yell over the minister to be heard. Paul was speaking to the women who yelld durning the service. Telling them not to yell and to wate to be heard.

@Zack w

Oops I ges I didn't read your who's comment sorry.

I didn't mean to judge you.
Forgive me?


I completely angry with you. Its frezing here in Indiana.

But we all have our own opinions.
