Americans are scratching their heads after President Donald Trump made a puzzling prediction about the 2020 presidential election.
A long list of possible Democratic challengers has emerged and Senator Elizabeth Warren is seen as one of the strongest competitors. Many analysts suspect Warren would have the credibility and experience to lead a massive comeback against Trump and the Republicans during the 2020 presidential election.
But Trump apparently disagrees – he told a reporter over the weekend that Warren would be easy to beat.
What do you think – would President Donald Trump win in a race against Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren?
President Trump said in an interview broadcast Saturday night that Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) launching a presidential bid against him would be “a dream come true.”
“I think she’d lose so badly,” Trump said during an interview on Fox News’ “Watters’ World.”
Trump claimed Warren, a top surrogate for 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “was getting up with that craziness and that anger” in speeches on the campaign trail.
Considering Trump’s awful approval numbers, it seems unlikely that he’ll be able to beat anyone the Democrats put forth during the next presidential election.
No other president in modern history has reached such a low approval rating in such a short amount of time. Trump has only been in office for about two months now and he’s already managed to anger pretty much every important voter group – senior citizens, public employees, blue-collar workers, and more.
Trump’s new comments about the 2020 election came during a televised interview with Fox News. Trump reportedly answered a wide range of questions and gave predictably puzzling responses.

Trump’s comments to Fox News came during a “lightning round” segment where he gave short descriptions of various political and media figures.
He called his senior adviser Kellyanne Conway a “very nice woman,” while when asked about Clinton, responded simply, “disappointed.”
Trump also said that billionaire Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban “backed me all the way but when I wouldn’t return his phone calls he went the other way, picked the wrong horse.”
The president spoke is less detailed terms when asked about Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“Don’t know him, but certainly he is a tough cookie and I don’t know how he’s doing for Russia. We’re gonna find out one day I guess,” Trump said.
Trump just repeats the same old talking points again and again – he doesn’t have anything of substance to say.
