Rumors have started circling from political associates of Al Franken, hinting at a possible run by the Minnesota senator for the White House in the following elections that will take place in year 2020.
But in order to do so, Franken would apparently need to be convinced and reluctant to enter a battle with a slew of Demcorats, in a wide-open race for party’s nomination. Franken’s Minnesota colleague in the upper chamber, Sen. Amy Klobuchar is also seen as a possible presidential candidate.
But according to R.T. Rybak, the former Minneapolis Mayor, Franken is “not the type of person to crawl over everyone’s dead carcasses to get to the White House,” but he also added that he wouldn’t yet rule out his running for the presidential elections, as one of his aides described him as a person that has a broud appeal to both wings of the party.
Rybak also went on to slam Trump, saying, “You can really imagine a discussion with the American people that gets beyond the bologna,” he said. “Right now people are so desperate for something that is real, that’s the reason they accepted a charlatan like Trump.”
It is clear that the Democrats are desperate to find a way to regain power, but as long as Trump has the support of the people who elected him, their candidates don’t stand a chance.
What do you think about this? Do you think Al Franken stand a chance against President Trump?
