The former Vice-President Joe Biden launches its 2020 bid as a battle for the ‘soul’ of America; the reaction and the analysis from the ‘Special Report’ All-Stars.
Contrary to some public statements, President Trump and his campaign staff are likely to be “quite worried” about the fact that the former Vice-President Joe Biden as a potential opponent in the year 2020, the Federalist publisher Ben Domenech said on Thursday.
“I actually think they are quite worried about him,” Domenech said in an appearance on Fox News’ “special report with Bret Baier.”
Domenech noted that part of the concern may stem from the fact that Trump and Biden — a Democrat from the White house bid official Thursday morning to appeal to some of the same types of voters.

“I think part of it has to do with the fact that Joe Biden has a clear appeal demonstrated in the past, in order to have the same States, were the key to the President’s trump card in the decision on the election in 2016,” said Domenech. For example, Biden — a longtime U.S. senator from Delaware, often speaks of his childhood in Pennsylvania, a state that Trump won over Hillary Clinton in 2016.
In his campaign kickoff video-Thursday, Biden argued that “if we were Donald Trump eight years in the White house, he will be forever and fundamentally changed the character of this nation, who we are, and I can’t stand by and watch what happens.”
To race still trump welcomed Biden, called him “Sleepy Joe” in a tweet and warning Biden, for a “nasty” primary fight against a large field of other Democrats, the party seeking the presidential nomination.
Domenech said Biden is a much stronger candidate than others, that he is, in particular, with African-Americans.
“Personally, I think that the elite opinion is wrong about Joe Biden, that he is actually a much stronger candidate, she said the granting of loans”, Domenech. “I think a big part of it is that he is a tremendous source of support for African-American voters that you do not see a lot of the other candidates in this race. Where you appeal to the more ‘awakened’ white progressive vote, which I think could be the loudest shouting about a lot of different topics now.”
The Federalist publisher also said to Biden, to raise issues from earlier in his career, his Democratic rival, almost certainly.

“The problem is for him, as he is with all of the hits, which is going to be against him from his past?” Domenech said.
“We have seen how they are used in many different ways, and I think they will be used against him. He will have to come up with different ways to respond to the different aspects.”
