The Democratic Party is still trying to recover from their embarrassing loss in the 2016 election.
They should have seen such a loss coming when they decided to let Hillary Clinton represent their party, but that is besides the point.
Now, it appears as if the former Obama-era Attorney General Eric Holder wants to run against Trump in 2020.
“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes,” he told Yahoo News in an exclusive interview. “But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general.”
“There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President Obama, so I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country,” he added.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Accordingly, Holder has begun forming a political action committee-like organization to develop and coordinate “resistance” strategies among Democrat-controlled states in the hopes of interfering with the president’s agenda.
The veritable troublemaker clearly wasn’t kidding about his desire “to be effective in opposing things.”
As noted by The Resurgent, his law firm played a key role in helping Democrat legislators in California draft a bill “designed to block the Trump administration from forcing local police units to deport illegal immigrants.”
If passed, the bill would turn California into a sanctuary state. Likewise, if Holder were ever to become president, America as a whole would likely become a sanctuary country.
Holder made it clear that he dislikes Trump so much that it motivated him to run against him in 2020.
“I thought, frankly, along with everybody else, that after the election, with Hillary Clinton as president, I could walk off the field,” he said. “So when she didn’t win, I thought, ‘We’ll have to see how this plays out.’ But it became clear relatively soon — and certainly sooner than I expected — that I had to get back on the field and be in effective opposition.”
Why can’t holder just disappear? He was a terrible attorney general and serves as a reminder of how terrible the Obama administration truly was.
One thing is for sure, if Holder runs, Trump will easily win the 2020 election.
