Former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown is a Democrat, but he not optimistic about his party’s chances of beating Trump in 2020.
In fact, Brown doesn’t believe any of the Democrats running can defeat Trump, even his one-time girlfriend Kamala Harris.

Willie Brown says no 2020 Democrat can beat Trump after debates
Former California Assembly Speaker Willie Brown said that no Democratic candidate in the 2020 race is capable of beating President Trump right now.
Brown’s political analysis appeared in his San Francisco Chronicle column on Saturday in a piece titled “Bad news for Democrats — none of these candidates can beat Trump.” Brown admitted that not even his ex-girlfriend Sen. Kamala Harris of California could beat Trump in a race today.
“Harris got all the attention for playing prosecutor in chief, but her case against former Vice President Joe Biden boiled down in some ways to a ringing call for forced school busing. It won’t be too hard for Trump to knock that one out of the park in 2020,” Brown wrote.
“Trump must have enjoyed every moment and every answer[ in the Democratic debates], because he now knows he’s looking at a bunch of potential rivals who are still not ready for prime time,” Brown concluded.
Willie Brown isn’t the only person saying this. Joe Scarborough is also in a panic.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough blasts ‘Woke Democrats’ in fiery tweetstorm: You’ll ‘lose another election to Trump’
MSNBC’s anti-Trump morning show star Joe Scarborough turned the tables on Tuesday and slammed the 2020 Democrats for embracing “woke” positions, insisting that will lead them to “lose another election” to President Trump.
The tweetstorm began with Scarborough reacting to the news that Nike was pulling their shoes inspired by the Betsy Ross-designed American flag after former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick expressed his opposition to the design, which he thought invoked slavery.
“The Betsy Ross flag is now a symbol of White Nationalism and slavery? Not defiance against a distant monarchy? Really, Nike?” Scarborough asked. “PC madness is accelerating just in time for 2020. Trump feeds on your reflexive Wokeness. Great job, everybody.”
The “Morning Joe” co-host then pivoted to the Democratic candidates and reiterated the stances at last week’s debates, saying they support “universal health care for illegal immigrants,” “making illegal crossing America’s borders legal,” and “a return to forced busing” and asking them if they “now support the banning of the Betsy Ross flag from public places.”
The Democrats may end up being their own worst enemies.
