Although Democrats seem to think that Joe Biden could be a formidable force in the 2020 presidential race, evidence culled from his own statements and public actions suggests otherwise.
Most recently, Biden disgraced himself and his party by calling the United States of America an “embarrassment” while speaking in Munich.
It is pretty clear, based on the swift and punishing criticism of Biden’s remark, that the Democrat would be very damaged by this clip if he chooses to go forward and run in 2020. Republican ads would obviously be merciless.
“The America I see values basic human decency, not snatching children from their parents or turning our back on refugees at our border. Americans know that’s not right. The American people understand plainly that this makes us an embarrassment. The American people know, overwhelmingly, that it is not right. That it is not who we are,” Biden stated.
“Joe Biden’s the real embarrassment, not America,” said the Boston Herald headline.
President Trump signed an executive order ending the separation of illegal migrant children at the border from their adult supervisors — many of whom are human traffickers. The Obama administration, which Biden was a leading part of at least for public appearances, was responsible for this practice.
According to a Tuesday POLITICO report, former Vice President Joe Biden raked in a huge amount of money under the guise of 2018 midterm fundraising via his PAC, but kept most of the money in his PAC’s coffers.
“Biden’s PAC gave Democratic candidates just a quarter of the more than $2 million he raised and spent during the midterms,” the piece said. “At the same time, he spent half a million dollars on websites and digital ads that could help him bolster his online presence and raise money from small donors for a 2020 primary campaign, and more of his PAC funds went to travel and other expenses.”
As rumors swirl that Biden is preparing a 2020 presidential run, it looks as if he has been planning such a run for a while.
“Biden reported expenses marked as ‘digital consulting,’ ‘website development’ and ’email services,’” the reports said. “Much of that business went to Blue State Digital, a firm founded by former campaign staff to President Barack Obama.”
An early Harvard/Harris poll had Biden leading a Democratic field, trailed closely by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and failed U.S. Senate candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke. Lagging behind in what will be a crowded field were Sens. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Elizabeth Warren, (D-Mass.) and Kamala Harris (D-Calif.).
Since the poll was released, several other Democrats have publicly toyed with the idea of making a 2020 run. former Obama Housing Czar and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro has formed an exploratory committee, the first official step towards running for president. Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.), famous for threatening to nuke American citizens if they rebelled against gun control laws, has openly discussed running. So has Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii). Actress Angelina Jolie did not rule out a potential run, either.
Still, when polled more recently, Democrats preferred an unnamed potential candidate over any of the names mentioned.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
