Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary R. Clinton spoke to the MAKERs women’s conference via a pre-recorded video message, in which she encouraged women to run for office, and kept speculation alive that she might make a third presidential run in 2020.

She said:

“Hello, MAKERS. I wish I could be there with you because this is such an important time.More than at any other point in my life, women are coming together to tackle big problems and rewrite old rules.

I am energized and encouraged by the diverse group of women everywhere who are speaking out. Speaking out against inequality, and bigotry, and racism, and homophobia, and organizing to create change in their communities and our country, refusing to give in to cynicism or fear.

You know, the tidal wave of women and young people running for office is helping to build an America that’s not only kinder, fairer, bigger-hearted, but safer, stronger and more secure.

And as Speaker Nancy Pelosi – doesn’t sound that great – has proved yet again, it often takes a woman to get the job done.

This is a pivotal moment, and all together, I believe, there is nothing we can’t do. So, here’s to the work ahead. And I look forward to working with you every step of the way.”

According to its website, “MAKERS is a media brand that exists to accelerate the women’s movement, through stories of real-life experiences that ignite passion and action.”

Two weeks ago, CNN’s Jeff Zeleny said that Clinton has not ruled out a 2020 run.

I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, she was telling people that look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying ‘look, I’m not closing the doors to this,'” Zeleny said.

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott is predicting a “50% increase” in support for Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

Scott made the prediction in an interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Friday.

President Trump will see a 50 percent increase in his African-American support. It will go from 8 percent in 2016 to a minimum of 12 percent in 2020. He may even get to 15 percent of the African American vote, and that is game over.”

Such a small slice of the black vote may seem small, but it very well could prove enough to be impactful in swing states such as Michigan and Pennsylvania. Scott pointed to President Trump’s performance on economic policy as a possible factor in drawing black support to the GOP in 2020.

“[Trump] had an executive order to increase affordability of home ownership, and African American home ownership since he took office is up about 2%… President Trump is not just talking a good game, he is walking a good game.”

Scott pointed to the possibility of a Michael Bloomberg nomination alienating some Black Americans from the Democratic Party.

African Americans have been one of the most consistent voting blocs for the Democratic Party since the 1960’s. Some blacks are concerned that they’re not a priority for the Democratic Party in an era where the party has made generous policy concessions to various demographic groups.

A realignment of some Black Americans into the Republican Party wouldn’t be without precedent in American history. African Americans originally strongly supported the reconstruction-era Republican Party when they were granted voting rights(in theory) after the Civil War. The first black U.S Senator and House Representative was a Republican.
