2020 is already heating up. We’ve heard many names being thrown around to take on President Trump in the 2020 general election. Corey Booker aka Spartacus claims he could beat President Trump in a landslide. So does former Vice President Joe Biden, former Democratic Nominee for President Hillary Clinton, California Senator Kamala Harris, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Creepy Porn Lawyer Michael Avanatti, Mickey Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, Jimmy Buffett, Willie Nelson, and last but not least Julian Castro
Former San Antonio Mayor then President Barack Obama’s HUD Secretary Julian Castro thinks he’s the guy to beat President Trump in 2020. Like many fairy tales, Castro thinks he has what it takes to take the main stage & bring the fight home to the American people. Yeah, we thought Hillary Clinton was the one to do that too, but then again Ariana Grande thinks God is a woman.

“People are ready to get on a better track with leadership that’s focused on creating opportunity for everybody and trying to bring the country together, rather than tear us apart,” he told CBS News. “I’ve had a chance over the last several years to get a sense of what people are looking for. I’ve visited more than 100 communities across the United States and I believe they’re ready for new leadership.”
Castro has spent the last two years as a guest lecturer at the University of Texas and other universities and recently published a memoir that was seen as his treatise for a potential campaign. He had passed on a 2018 campaign for U.S. Senate or governor in Texas, a sign he remained focused on eventually launching a presidential campaign.
In a field of candidates that could include dozens of current and former lawmakers, governors and mayors, Castro said he will cite his “track record of getting things done at the local and the federal level.”
“There are going to be a lot of talented people running and I look forward to making my case to the voters,” he added.
Castro, who is Mexican-American, made the announcement about his exploratory committee standing in front of a picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe; Dec. 12 is the feast day for the saint, a venerated figure in Mexico.
Castro has a twin brother, Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, who is poised to be a senior member of the House Intelligence Committee next year and to hold a senior position in his brother’s campaign, likely in a fundraising role, given that both brothers have been popular draws on the county and state party fundraising circuit for several years.
Can we all just stop & take a moment to calm down? This guy is a joke. If you know his families ties to the radicalized movement. Julian Castro’s mother Rosie Castro isn’t your typical politicians mother. She doesn’t shit at home & bake cookies for other congressman or sends Julian to work with a taco plate. No, Rosie Castro was a member of the Raza Unida Party ( RUP).The party’s objective was to elect member of the Tejanos to office. What many people do not understand is the RAZA Unida Party has direct ties to the Palestine Liberation Organization & their leader Yasser Arafat. That along should disqualify Julian to becoming President. The RUP is nothing short of a communist revolution organization.
