Justin Amash Tweet Indicates Possible Presidential Run Against Trump in 2020

Amash’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ Tweet makes it obvious that he wants to challenge Trump even though he knows it is a doomed venture.

Rep. Justin Amash’s hatred of President Trump may inspire the five-term Michigan congressman to run for President in 2020.

Rep. Amash (R-MI) decided to break the news on Twitter, apparently feeling emboldened by having taken up the mantle of King of the Never Trumpers from former Sen. Jeff Flake, who was run from office in disgrace.

Amash released a cryptic tweet earlier this week, geekily quoting “Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien in a manner to indicate that a Presidential run may be in order even though he knows he has no real chance to win.

Amash, who was nowhere to be found during President Trump’s massive rally in his hometown of Grand Rapids last night, has flirted with the idea of running for President in the recent past. He told a reporter in January that his ideal third-party candidate “wears Air Jordans” while wearing Air Jordans at the time. Amash addressed the issue at length during an interview with libertarian podcaster Marc Clair earlier this month.

“Well, it’s more on my radar every day, because I keep getting asked about it now,” Amash said during an interview on the Lions of Liberty podcast. “I think there were just some people sort of talking about it on social media, and then Jake Tapper must have picked up on that and asked me the question, so now more people are talking about it. So obviously I’m thinking about it a little more.”

Amash may leave the Republicans behind completely and become the standard bearer for the Libertarian Party, which has achieved relevance only as a laughingstock since its inception in 1971.

“I just think it’s important that we offer some alternative. And I think we need someone out there who can be a bridge for people, who can present a libertarian message but also bring people together. And I think the libertarian message is one that unites people across the political spectrum,” Amash said.

“Most people who aren’t politically active, who are just at home and don’t want to have to think about government, they kind of want our government to just stay out of their lives for the most part, stop messing things up, and stop dividing everyone,” he added, failing to point out how Trump’s tax cuts and regulatory rollbacks have helped ordinary Americans by getting the government off their backs.

Amash’s competition for the Libertarian Party nomination would include tech privacy advocate and whale lover John McAfee and steadfast defender of underage relations Arvin Vohra. Amash could conceivably beat those individuals in a primary challenge, secure the Libertarian Party nomination for President in 2020, and be the ‘Never Trump’ protest option in Michigan like Evan McMullin was for Utah back in 2016.

The globalist liberaltarians at Reason Magazine are thrilled at the prospect of Amash running a sabotage campaign against Trump in 2020. They have documented and promoted Amash’s change from Ron Paul revolutionary into Jeff Flake wanna-be for years now:

While Koch brothers functionaries and irrelevant third-party backers may love the idea of Amash turning his back on party and country, he should take into consideration his fellow liberty stalwarts in Congress – like Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) – as well as his pro-Trump constituents before making such a self-serving decision.

Donald Trump Dominates Iowa Youth Straw Poll, Winning 55% to 32% Over Biden

Young Americans for Trump.

Donald Trump secured a victory in Iowa’s Youth Straw Poll, with Iowa Secretary of State Paul Pate announcing the results of the informal contest on Friday.

Trump won 55% of 31,000 participating students who attend 225 different schools across the state of Iowa. Biden won only 32%, with dark horse candidate Kanye West winning 9% of the straw poll vote.

The poll also questioned students as to Iowa’s Senate election, with incumbent Republican senator Joni Ernst winning 53% support. Democrat Theresa Greenfield won 38%.

This is a fun, hands-on learning experience that hopefully will create a lifelong interest in civics and elections for these students,” Secretary Pate said. “My thanks to everyone who participated and the teachers and school leaders across the state for organizing this event.

Democrats have expressed increasing confidence that they’re on the verge of winning Texas, Iowa, Ohio and other historically Republican states. If young voters vote for President Trump in anything close to the margin seen in the straw poll, they can frankly kiss such a prospect goodbye. Trump would win Iowa by a margin never before seen in the state if he secures 55% of Generation Z voters. However, the high school audience that participated in the poll didn’t query millennial voters.

There’s evidence to suggest that Trump has increased the appeal of the Republican Party to young voters, especially with Democrat Joe Biden doubling down on a campaign strategy of almost exclusively marketing his candidacy to traditionally conservative white senior voters.
