Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke revealed that he plans to run for President of the United States via a text message sent to a local TV station.
KTSM reported that O’Rourke is officially launching his presidential campaign on Thursday morning, and that he gave them the exclusive information via a text message exchange between the station’s journalists and the failed senate candidate.
“I’m really proud of what El Paso did and what El Paso represents,” O’Rourke said in the text. “It’s a big part of why I’m running. This city is the best example of this country at its best.”
Speculation on whether he would run for president has been discussed since his Senate loss to Ted Cruz in November. An appearance with Oprah and a February showdown in El Paso with President Donald Trump only added to the discussion.
This comes after O’Rourke promised Texans he would not use his new level of fame to run for president, telling a reporter “I’m not looking at 2020. In fact, I’m completely ruling that out. Not going to do that,” adding that regardless of whether he was elected to the senate he was not interested.
“Win or lose, I’m not running in 2020… The answer is no.”

In spite of his now-broken promise, there has been escalating speculation that O’Rourke intended to run for president over the last few months. Last year he quietly met with former President Barack Obama and his aids, who urged O’Rourke to run. Earlier in 2018, there were endless articles declaring O’Rourke to be the new Obama, frequently referring to him as the “White Obama.”
O’Rourke’s ticket may prove a challenge for radical leftists to overcome, as the candidate recently pledged not only to forego building a wall at the United States-Mexico border, but to actually dismantle the existing border barriers.
He also attempted to upstage President Donald J. Trump during a rally in El Paso, Texas with his own event. President Trump’s audience, speech, and music were so loud they could be heard from O’Rourke’s comparatively much smaller event, leading many online to mock O’Rourke’s pathetic attempt.
Also available at O’Rourke’s rally was an interesting circus side show, which allowed attendees to violently beat a piñata made to look like President Trump.
Biden Impresses U.S. Workers with ‘Buy America’ Push After Kushner Blocked Trump’s Economic Nationalist Order
Kushner is sabotaging Trump’s re-election chances.
Trump backers are reportedly enraged as former vice president Joe Biden has unveiled his “Buy America” push, scoring points with the working class base that President Trump desperately needs to win re-election.
Biden proposed a plan this week that would spend $700 billion to revitalize the American economy and attempt to undo the tremendous damage done by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This will be the largest mobilization of public investments in procurement, infrastructure and (research and development) since World War II,” Biden senior adviser Jake Sullivan said to the Associated Press to talk up the proposal.
Biden wants the government to spend an additional $400 billion to buy U.S.-based goods and services over the course of four years. His plan would spend another $300 million on research and development related to technology. He is also intending to revise current “Buy American” laws to end loopholes that help foreign firms.
“What’s going on here, we need to build back, not just to where we were but build back better than we’ve ever been,” Biden said to the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers on Wednesday. “We’re going to take a monumental step forward for the prosperity, power, safety and dignity of all American workers.”
While Biden’s plan may be fluff, he has outflanked President Trump on the “Buy American” issue. Trump has reportedly had an “Economic Nationalism” executive order ready to be signed for months, but it has been stalled at the behest of globalists in his administration, namely his son-in-law Jared Kushner, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
Some White House allies in the "economic nationalism" camp are fuming today that Biden put out a "Buy America" push before Trump signed one of his senior aide's own "Buy America" proposals, a draft of which has languished for months ….

It was widely reported back in March that White House trade advisor Peter Navarro had the executive order ready for the President to sign, but it was ultimately shelved because of resistance from within the administration.
Big Pharma also sent a letter to the administration lobbying against the America First order. They claimed the measure would “not only overestimate the potential feasibility and underestimate the time and effort it would take to make such changes, but also misunderstand that a diverse pharmaceutical supply chain is precisely what enables the industry to respond quickly and make adjustments in its supply chain sourcing during natural emergencies and global public health crises.”
Big League Politics has reported for years about how Kushner’s influence as senior advisor has undermined President Trump’s mandate:
CNN commentator Van Jones, who was once run from the Obama administration due to his communist ties, has been revealed as the man largely responsible for crafting President Donald Trump’s police reform executive order.
Jones is under heavy fire from left-wing media outlets for being willing to work with the Trump administration. The Daily Beast published an article bashing Jones for helping to “secretly craft the weak Trump police reform he praised on TV.”
They reported: “Jones and California human rights attorney Jessica Jackson, who runs #cut50, a prison-reform group that Jones also founded, actively participated with law enforcement officials and White House staffers to help fashion the order and guide the politics of the discussion to what they considered “the sweet spot” between law enforcement and “the reasonable middle” and “the reasonable left.”’
Jones has become a major influence on the Trump administration because of Trump son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner. Kushner is a huge admirer of Jones, and has rolled out the red carpet for the communist to determine law enforcement policy for the White House.
“He was someone I’d seen on television, so I was deeply skeptical,” Kushner said to The Daily Beast. “But I said I’d be happy to speak to him, and we had a good chat. And then we just started working together. And what I saw, with him, was that he had a lot of courage, when other people play politics.”
“I find that in politics, people get in uncomfortable situations, and that’s when you get to see what a person’s character really is,” Kushner added. “And in a tough situation Van has shown me that he’s got true character. He’s focused on the right things.”
Kushner has pushed for Trump to abandon being the law-and-order President so he could let criminals out of jail instead to placate the Left. Placating the Left has not worked for the administration, as riots now lay waste to cities all over the country.
Kushner’s blundering could ultimately cost President Trump his re-election in November, as Biden leads on the issue of putting American workers first.
