New Jersey Democratic Senator Cory Booker threw his hat into the already crowded ring on Friday to challenge President Trump for the White House in 2020. Booker, who gained special notoriety for his “Spartacus” self-comparison during his defamation of now confirmed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, is calling for Americans to unite behind him. In an obvious jab at President Trump, Booker argued that he envisions a country “where our criminal justice system keeps us safe instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.” So many words with so little meaning. Thanks, Sparky.

Calling for a sense of common purpose, Sen. Cory Booker on Friday morning declared his candidacy for president.
The high-profile Democrat from New Jersey announced his White House run with a new website and a tweet featuring a two-minute-long campaign launch video, as well as an email to supporters.
“I believe that we can build a country where no one is forgotten, no one is left behind; where parents can put food on the table; where there are good-paying jobs with good benefits in every neighborhood,” Booker said in the video.

The former mayor of Newark, known for his oratory skills, added that he envisions a country “where our criminal justice system keeps us safe, instead of shuffling more children into cages and coffins; where we see the faces of our leaders on television and feel pride, not shame.”
