President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign is literally begging Hillary Clinton to run again in 2020 after she was completely destroyed by the President during the 2016 election.
During an interview with “Fox and Friends,” President Trump’s campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany made it clear that no Democrat, including former First Ladies Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama could beat President Trump in 2020.
“We encourage Hillary to get back in the race,” she said. “We would love it, so please do.”
Fox News co-host Ainsley Earhardt immediately jumped in, arguing that the Democratic Party would never allow that to happen.
“There’s no way the Democratic Party would support that,” Earhardt said.
Although Clinton has been making signals in recent weeks about running again, The Hill’s Amie Parnes says that the chances she jumps in to the race is still very small.
“It’s Bannon-created,” said Clinton’s communications adviser Philippe Reines. “What his ratio is between honest belief and troublemaking is hard to know. Obviously though he doesn’t have any sources.”
“The Republican Party has made such a long-term investment in obsessing about Hillary Clinton that they literally can’t stop,” Clinton campaign surrogate Tracy Sefl said. “In some ways, she’s all they know. She’s the permanent Mad Libs subject matter of the GOP.”
Not everyone on the Left agrees however. Many people close to Clinton argue that she is strongly considering running against President Trump again.
“It would be the ultimate vindication,” a source told The Hill. “Of course, she’s thought about it. But that doesn’t mean that she’s running.”
On Tuesday, the New York Times posted an op-ed, stating that Clinton would probably step into the race if she thinks that the Democratic frontrunners would lose to the President.
Democratic leaders are engaging in a familiar rite: fretting about who is in the race and longing for a white knight to enter the contest at the last minute.
Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Bloomberg have both told people privately in recent weeks that if they thought they could win, they would consider entering the primary – but that they were skeptical there would be an opening, according to Democrats who have spoken with them.
Former Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who associates say has wondered aloud about whether he should have run and has found it hard to watch Mr. Biden’s missteps, has also been urged to get in. But he still thinks the former vice president, who was once his longtime Senate colleague, is the party’s best nominee.
Many conservatives like Ben Shapiro even think that if Clinton decides to run, she would have a really good chance of winning the Democratic primary.
“Honestly, if Hillary Clinton were to make her grand reentrance, now would be about the time she should do it,” he said. “Because the fact is, a lot of people are dissatisfied with [Joe] Biden. A lot of people are dissatisfied with [Elizabeth] Warren, and Hillary is an enormous name.”
