The first major competitor against Trump in the 2020 election may be about to announce their candidacy

No, it isn't Oprah.

Just to clarify, during a recent interview with In Style Magazine, Oprah took herself out of the running quite bluntly:

" I actually saw a mug the other day … I thought it was a cute mug. All you need is a mug and some campaign literature and a T-shirt. I’ve always felt very secure and confident with myself in knowing what I could do and what I could not."

"And so it’s not something that interests me. I don’t have the DNA for it. Gayle—who knows me as well as I know myself practically—has been calling me regularly and texting me things, like a woman in the airport saying, “When’s Oprah going to run?” So Gayle sends me these things, and then she’ll go, “I know, I know, I know! It wouldn’t be good for you—it would be good for everyone else.” I met with someone the other day who said that they would help me with a campaign. That’s not for me."

So that's that.

And while there are other potentials in the pipeline - including The Rock, who has been quite open about gearing up for 2024 run - the first proper competition against Trump getting a second term has emerged.

According to The Jerusalem Post, John Kerry meet with a close confidant of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in London and revealed that he was “seriously considering” making a bid for the 2020 election.

If you're wondering how you know that name, Kerry was a former senator, Secretary of State and one-time Democratic nominee back in 2004, ultimately losing to George W. Bush.

According to the report, Kerry told Abbas' contact that he was the Palestinian's to "hold on and be strong", and "[that they] should stay strong in [their] spirit and play for time, that [they] will not break and will not yield to President [Donald] Trump’s demands."

Brokering a peace deal between Israel and Palestine is apparently very high on Kerry's Presidential to-do list, which would be a direct opposition to Trump's stance, which is to haphazardly name capitals in the region.

Kerry also apparently revealed that he expects Trump will no longer be in the White House a year from now.
