2020 candidates are running out of ways to stand out when they announce their candidacy. Which may be the reason why the newest contender decided to announce themselves on “The View.”
Joining the ladies on ABC, Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio declared that he would seek a 2020 presidency.
Looking to play up a familial tone, Ryan shared how his daughter prompted him to act when she came home crying that a friend’s father was part of the General Motors transfer.
“My daughter called me and she said, ‘You got to do something.’ And I said, ‘I’m going to do something. I’m going to run for president of the United States. We’re going to make sure this doesn’t happen anymore,’ Ryan said.
Ryan tried to market his appeal as a person who advocates for new technologies like electric vehicles, all while attempted to smear President Trump as “old school.”
“Here’s Trump’s problem, among several,” Ryan said attempting humor. “He plays the old school politics. He wants to go back to the old economy. He’s talking about old steel mills and old coal mines. I’m saying where are our kids going to work?”
Ryan must have missed that unemployment has been the lowest in decades under Trump’s leadership. If Ryan thinks he can outdo President Trump from a business angle he has another thing coming.
