Julián Castro on his 2020 vision and beating Trump

This is who I predict will win the DEM nomination.  God help us!  I don't think that the GOP can continue to count on FL, TX or AZ.

Julián Castro on his 2020 vision and beating Trump

2020 Democratic hopeful Julián Castro said that while he knows his candidacy has "special meaning for the Latino community," he is prepared to present his "vision that includes everybody" as he works to gain the Democratic nomination in an already crowded field.
Castro announced his intent to run for president in January, focusing on his family's immigration story during his announcement, but he told Van Jones on "The Van Jones Show," airing Saturday on CNN at 7 p.m. ET, that possibly becoming the first Latino nominee isn't all about demographics.
"I know there's special meaning for the Latino community that I'm running for president. ... I'm proud of my background. I do think that there's going to be special meaning in my candidacy, but I'm also aware that I have to have policy proposals and a vision that includes everybody," Castro said.
Castro said Trump's rhetoric, particularly when it comes to Latino-Americans, has divided the US. "I can only imagine, as a Mexican-American, the things that they're going to come up with for me," he said.

When asked how he plans to make the 2020 election a "nightmare" for Trump, Castro said he would win states like Florida, Texas and Arizona and go after battleground states like Michigan and Wisconsin, should he win the Democratic nomination.

"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Julián is such a lightweight.  Sort of an AOC without the charisma and photogeniety.

That lemon sucker has all the charisma of a puckered bleep after a habanero pepper eating contest.
