Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper officially launched his presidential campaign by accusing President Donald Trump of "destroying our democracy" and "endangering our plant," The Hill is reporting.

Hickenlooper, a Democrat, made his comments Thursday in Denver.

"We have every right to live in a land that's the home of hope," he told supporters. "But these days, that's not how it feels in America. It feels like we’re living in a heaving crisis – years in the making, spawned by dysfunctional politics, and defined above all by this president.

"Donald Trump is alienating our allies, ripping away our healthcare, endangering our planet, and destroying our democracy."

And he added: "I'm running for president because the only way to end the Trump crisis of division is with a leader who knows how to bring people together and get things done."

Hickenlooper, 67, joined the growing field of Democratic presidential candidates Monday. He hopes to position himself as a centrist.
