Former President Barack Obama secretly said that if Bernie Sanders was leading the presidential nomination for 2020 he would try to stop him, according to Politico.
He pointed out that Sanders no longer had a close link with the electorate that helped him in his 2008 campaign, adding that Joe Biden did not have it either, according to Politico.
Obama also intervened in the previous campaign, in 2016, when he pressured Sanders to support Hillary Clinton.
The former president did not agree with the policies of senator and progressive candidate Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) because of her expensive public health program, according to The Hill, quoted by The Daily Wire.
At the same time, Democrats are beginning to show how Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry turned against them.
Republican Rep. Andy Biggs referred to the issue by summarizing: “Nobody can really explain what the charges are [of which the president is accused] …” and he also said Democrats would be looking for an escape from the impeachment inquiry they started.
“The primary is going to be turned topsy turvy for the Democrats,” Biggs concluded on the Fox News program “Hannity.”
Democratic lawmakers accuse President Donald Trump of pressuring Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy in a July 25 phone call and based on that they started the impeachment inquiry.
