Stacey Abrams has a lot of confidence in herself for someone who lost her last election.
She couldn’t close the deal with Georgia voters in her 2018 bid for governor of the state, but she is already predicting that she will be the American president in a matter of years.
Stacey Abrams Has a Wild Presidential Predication for 2040
Failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams predicated to FiveThirtyEight that she will become president of the United States in 2040.
Abrams was asked if the country will elect a woman president, including a black woman, in the next 20 years.
“Yes. Absolutely,” Abrams said.
“Do you think they’ll elect you?” Clare Malone asked.
“Yes, I do. That’s my plan. And I’m very pragmatic,” Abrams replied.
Abrams also said she could see one of the white Democratic 2020 candidates could pick her to be vice president to balance out and appeal to more voters.
“I accept that I exist in the political zeitgeist in a very specific way,” she said.
Abrams is most famous for not conceding Georgia’s 2018 gubernatorial election and that she was the true winner in the race. Then-Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp won against Abrams by getting 1,978,408 votes, as opposed to Abrams’ 1,923,685 votes.
In her speech admitting that she did not win against Kemp, Abrams did not concede because she says there was voter suppression.

Even some people on the left aren’t buying this.
Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum are grifters who sold out the progressive cause to climb the corporatist DNC ladder. F them both. https://t.co/3lpxPNCwdf

She is certainly free to try.
