Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey may well be in the running for the Democrats as a nominee for the 2020 presidential election. What could be a better way to prepare for that than getting the competition to resign?
Senator Booker is circulating an online petition to do just that. He believes that President Trump should step down in response to the allegations of sexual harassment against him.
Booker is one on the growing list of possible candidates for the Democrats in the 2020 race. He is also not the only potential candidate to insist President Trump leave the White House. Perhaps they realize that their pointless investigations are turning up nothing so now they might as well just make demands. It is likely to work just as well.
Lmao they can’t impeach him so now they want him to quit lmao my god the left has lost their minds! Cory booker is a joke!

Booker sent out the petition in an email stating;
“The number of women who have brought sexual harassment, misconduct, or assault allegations against him has grown to 20 individuals — and I believe them. We all should believe them. We must hold members of both parties to the same standard, and that standard should apply all the way to the top.”
He is referring to the resignation of Al Franken a few weeks ago and the “retirement” announcement of John Conyers before that. Booker was one of the lawmakers who called for Franken to step down. Booker also wrote in his email;
“President Trump must be accountable for his actions. Please join me in calling on Mr. Trump to resign as President of the United States.”

Democrats have been quick to call for President Trump’s resignation. They stood behind Franken and Conyers for weeks before finally accepting that the two needed to go.
Some Democrats even stated that Franken should retract his resignation. That can be called nothing but hypocrisy.
Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have also said President Trump should resign. All three are considering a run in 2020.
