'America's' Reverend To Challenge Trump In 2020?

Al Sharpton would not rule out challenging Donald Trump in 2020 in what is shaping up to be a potentially crowded field.

According to the Washington Free Beacon:

MSNBC host and civil rights activist Al Sharpton said in a new interview he won't rule out a run for president in 2020, adding he isn't currently mounting a bid.

"I never rule anything out," Sharpton told BuzzFeed News.

The progressive firebrand and outspoken critic of President Donald Trump ran for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2004, although it was viewed as more of a stunt than a serious attempt at the White House. He also ran previously for U.S. Senate and New York mayor.

Sharpton was a strong ally of President Barack Obama and said he would never use his MSNBC platform to criticize his administration. Sharpton, who has known Trump for decades as a fellow fixture of New York, has blasted him as racist.

The MSNBC host might be doing this to drive ratings for his once weekly show. It would surely make for an interesting Dem primary in 2020 if Sharpton were to enter the race.
