The Washington Post details how Democrats--and Republicans--are already taking aim at President Trump as the 2020 presidential race "kicks into a higher gear."
Voters have yet to go to the polls in the 2018 midterms, but President Trump and many of the potential contenders aiming to unseat him were already trading fire during what might be viewed as the first official weekend of the 2020 presidential campaign.
Some, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and attorney Michael Avenatti, addressed their presidential ambitions head-on. Others, such as Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), fueled speculation; the vocal Trump critic is slated to make his second visit to the first-in-the-nation primary state of New Hampshire on Monday, days after he was propelled into the national spotlight by his call for an expanded FBI investigation of Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh amid sexual assault allegations.
All the while, Trump escalated his attacks on potential opponents, calling out several of them by name in a blistering speech in West Virginia on Saturday night.
