Trump: Would 'Love' Competing Against Biden, Sanders, Beto

By    |   Friday, 22 March 2019 02:18 PM

President Donald Trump said in an interview airing Friday that he'd "love" competing against either former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2020 presidential race, but "we could dream" about a challenge from ex-Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke.

“I'd love to have Biden. I'd love to have Bernie, I'd love to have Beto," Trump told Fox Business' Maria Bartiromo. "When I watch Beto, I say 'we could dream' about that...I mean, Beto seems to be the one the press has chosen. The press seems to have chosen Beto."

He said he "wouldn't mind" running against O'Rourke, who became nationally known when he narrowly lost against incumbent GOP Sen. Ted Cruz last year for the Texas Senate seat.

However, he slammed the El Paso Democrat for his comments that he would "absolutely" tear down a border wall in his hometown.

"So you have Beto, and Beto comes out and he says, ‘Let's take down the wall.’ If you ever took down the wall, this country would be overrun,” Trump said.

Trump said what he thinks about is competence.

"When I first ran, I was never a politician," said Trump. "I ran, I ran on a certain platform. I've done far more than I said I was going to do, when you look at the tax cuts, when you look at the regulation cuts more than any other president."

Sanders, I-Vt., has been running at the top of the pack of contenders for the Democratic nomination, along with Biden, who has not yet officially announced his candidacy.
