Overseas Network, January 13 (local time, 12), then President Barack Obamas Housing and Urban Development Minister of the Democratic Party Julian Castro officially announced his participation in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, which is the second Democrat after former Maryland Congressman John Delaney announced his candidacy. So far, Trump has sought a second term with another competitor.
Castro, 44, a Mexican immigrant, was elected mayor of San Antonio, the seventh largest city in the United States at the age of 34, with rich political experience, in addition to serving as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development during Obamas second term, according to the Associated Press. If elected successfully in 2020, it will become the first Latino president in American history.
Trump recently visited the U.S. -Mexico border to launch a new round of propaganda on his border wall and said in his local speech that the United States is currently facing threats from its southern allies. Castro scoffed at this and said, Trump calls it a national security crisis. Yes, the United States does have a crisis today, but its a leadership crisis. Trump failed to uphold American values.
Castro strongly opposed Trumps immigration policy. There are many serious problems in our current fragmented immigration policy that continue to be solved, but asylum-seeking is a legal right, but the Trump government is doing lasting harm to it, he said. Castro advocated a wise and humanitarian approach to ensure border security.
In addition, Castro said he joined the presidential race because the United States needed new leaders, new skills and new commitments to ensure that every American enjoyed his rights. Currently, Castro has begun preparations for the election. His first trip as a presidential candidate will begin on the 14th, in Puerto Rico, which was hit by a hurricane.
In addition to Castro, who officially announced his candidacy, Tulsi Gabbard, a Democratic congresswoman, recently said she had decided to run for the presidency of the United States in 2020 and would officially announce the news next week, CNN reported. Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat, also announced her intention to run for president and said she would officially open her campaign plan in early 2019. In addition, people familiar with the matter said that Biden, the former Vice President of the United States, will decide next month whether to participate in the 2020 presidential election.
