"Well, I think he's got a lot of hand movement", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office.

Soon after his loss, O'Rouke began pollingnear the top of the Democratic field as early as December, before anyone had announced their bids.

It was the kind of high-energy, off-the-cuff style that made him a sensation in Texas and a monster fundraiser nationwide, but O'Rourke also was clear that he doesn't believe in strict immigration rules - drawing a distinction that could allow him to clash openly with President Donald Trump on the issue.

Robert is O'Rourke's legal first name.

His initial challenge in the Democratic presidential race will be to distinguish himself from candidates sharing his positions on key progressive issues, such as universal health care and refusing donations from corporate political action committees.

Klobuchar, asked about O'Rourke on Thursday, let out a hearty, "Welcome!" "There are people in that are going to have resources from past elections and in terms of having lists and things because he was running against Ted Cruz, and I just view it as you run your own race, you appeal to people". He lost his only tilt at the Senate to one of the most divisive Republicans in America, Ted Cruz.

According to The Washington Post, Beto O'Rourke's popularity has grown after he challenged Senator Ted Cruz past year.

In a Vanity Fair profile that came out on Wednesday the former Texas Congressman says he's "just born to be in" the 2020 Presidential race.

According to a Breitbart story posted on February 12, 2019, O'Rourke claims the "Green New Deal" was the "best proposal that I've seen" - ignoring its $93 trillion price tag.

"This is a defining moment of truth for this country, and for every single one of us", O'Rourke said in his campaign video, while seated next to his wife, Amy.
