Beto O'Rourke has recently revealed that he will be running for Office in the 2020 presidential elections and appealed to Americans to look past their differences in these dark times.
On Thursday, March 14, 2019, the 46-year-old former congressman released a video on his official Twitter page where he appeared next to his wife announcing his run.
According to O'Rourke, Americans must come together in order to tackle the challenges that the United States are facing and promised the "largest grassroots campaign this country has ever seen."
A QUITE PASSIONATE SPEECH
"I am running to serve you as the next president. The challenges we face are the greatest in living memory. No one person can meet them on their own. Only this country can do that, and only if we build a movement that includes all of us."

While addressing the nation, O'Rourke explained that the crises affecting the economy, democracy and climate have never been greater and that Americans had the choice of being consumed by them or fight back.
The Texas native started off his campaign in coffee shop in Keokuk but is also expected to hold a rally on March 30 in El Paso, his hometown, which will also be his campaign headquarters.

One of the main points raised by O'Rourke during his speech was immigration, which he considered the best problem America could possibly have.
The 46-year-old stated that immigrants arriving at the Southern border should be given opportunities within the United States, whether to be with family members, work or flee persecution.

The U.S. President said that the GND would take away American's cars and "shut down American energy," as well as air travel, making trips to Europe impossible since a train wouldn't be able to reach it.
