POTUS Comments on Rumored Dem Plan to Replace Biden as 2020 Nominee

This seems to lend some legitimacy to the swirling rumors.

For the Democratic faithful, 2020 may have seemed like a slam dunk.

They were going to railroad Joe Biden into the nomination, as he was not only intrinsically linked to Democratic demigod Barack Obama, but he was a centrist who could steal votes away from Donald Trump in the moderate midwest.  And everything was going to plan too, until ol’ Joe started talking.  Soon, the headlines were practically commiserating with the Democratic faithful who saw Biden’s temper and absentmindedness as a burden.

It was too late to bring Bernie back into the fold, and the Democratic establishment would never go for that anyway.

So a not so secret plan was hatched to possibly usurp Biden at the convention, instead nominating New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo.

President Trump didn’t seem to mind that idea.

“I wouldn’t mind running against Andrew. I’ve known Andrew for a long time,” Trump said. “I wouldn’t mind that, but I’ll be honest. I think he’d be a better candidate than Sleepy Joe.”

The president spoke about Cuomo and Biden during an interview with Fox and Friends on Monday morning.

Cuomo’s performance as governor of New York during the coronavirus crisis has boosted his approval ratings, prompting comparisons between him and Biden as leaders of the Democrat party. A new poll shows that 87 percent of New Yorkers now approve of Cuomo’s job performance, up from 44 percent in February.

“I think probably Andrew would be better,” Trump said when asked about Cuomo. “I’m telling you right now, you know, I want somebody in this country that’s going to do a great job.”

Trump would go on to admit, however, that he’s comfortable running against whichever poor sap the Democrats throw at him.
