Rep. Seth Moulton stated on Sunday that he will decide “in the next few weeks” whether to run for president in 2020.
“My wife, Liz, and I are discussing this. A family made the choice. On CNN’s “State of the Union,” the Massachusetts Democrat stated, “It’s something that we have to commit to collectively.” After all, decisions are said and done, Liz and I will discuss this. We’ll decide in the upcoming weeks.
After just returning from a visit to Iowa, Moulton stated that he had “been talking to a lot of veterans specifically, starting with veterans and kids, and trying to understand what they want to see in the next commander in chief.”
According to the 40-year-old lawmaker, the next president must be “someone who can make sure that every American has a job in the new economy, not the old, someone who can work hard to ensure that every American has access to health care, and we get weapons of war off our streets, and, fundamentally, a commander in chief who you might not agree with but you can trust.” This election will center on issues of employment, security, and trust.
National security would be a pillar of Moulton’s campaign, which would be a long shot in an already crowded primary field. Moulton spent four tours in Iraq as a Marine.
As opposed to what many people appear to be focusing on, national security “is not just about preventing Russia from invading us with tanks into Western Europe. To influence our elections, Russia. And Robert Mueller made that point very obvious. Many American jobs are leaving because China is constantly targeting us online and stealing our corporate concepts and military capabilities.
He mocked President Trump’s plan to construct a “fifth-century ludicrous border wall on the southern border,” arguing that the emphasis should be placed on “a cyber-wall that will prohibit Russia and China from interfering in our industry.”
Nancy Pelosi’s performance during the most recent government shutdown was commended by Moulton, who rejected her attempt to become speaker.
“I do I believe she did a wonderful job, he remarked.
