Rising Democratic star Stacey Abrams suggests she may step into the 2020 presidential ring with President Trump. The 2018 Georgia gubernatorial runner-up suggested she might run for president in a tweet following an interview at the South by Southwest Stage conference in Austin, Texas.

Abrams promoted her book "Minority Leader: How to Build Your Future and Make Real Change" at the SXSW conference.

When asked about her plans for 2020, Abrams said she wants to be in a job that pays but, she also had plans to challenge President Trump.

"No matter what my job is, my task is to make certain that a Democrat is elected, not only to the White House but that we have democratic majority in the Senate and a democratic majority in Congress," she said.

Abrams also said she thinks President Donald Trump is a racist. "I think he's racist, I think he's xenophobic, I think he's homophobic. I think he has disdain for anything that he considers different than the norm," Abrams said. She also said Trump was a "bully" but said she doesn't think Democrats will defeat him by using his own tactics against him. "I think beating Donald Trump is the wrong mission. When you're focused on your enemy then you are ignoring your allies."

After attending the conference, Abrams tweeted: "20 years ago, I never thought I'd be ready to run for POTUS before 2028. But life comes at you fast - as I shared in Q&A w @Yamiche at @sxsw. Now 2020 is definitely on the table."

Abrams, 45, is a lawyer and novelist who served as Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017. The Wisconsin native was the first Black female major-party gubernatorial nominee in the history of the United States. In February, Abrams became the first Black woman to deliver a State of the Union response.

    Everybody and they mama want to run for President. I guess if Agent Orange can be President than I can too.

  • Youcan’tbanmesucka

    Oh nooooooooo

  • Victorious82

    Why tho? She couldn’t win in her own state. Doubt she could win on a national level. I say continue to do the work and maybe next go around you’ll be able to do it sis.

  • WinterIsComing

    I have to do more research on her. But from this post what she says makes sense. So the count is up to 2,349 folks tossing their hat in the ring for 2020?

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Well tRUMP proved any one can cheat oops win. I'd rather her any day than this clown in office

  • Ghost

    So sad too...because he sets LOW bar!

  • J’aime Sucer

    That photo is meme worthy

  • XoXo

    She couldn’t win in her own state because the person running against her was also in charge of the elections. ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm all for chasing your dreams, aspiring to higher heights etc., but timing is everything. To me, she's just not ready for this step right now. Stacey...

    Who gassed up her head to think after her run for governor last year that she should run for president?

    Please run for the U.S. Senate and put Georgia in play for whoever is the Democratic presidential ticket.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She was cheated so many different ways.

    Some of the absentee ballots sent to voters in the Savannah area had the wrong return address stamped on them.

    The then-Secretary of State and now governor wrongly purged over 300K voters and his margin of victory was only 55K.

    2018 GA governor's race CLARIFICATION: A winner was declared, but due to CONFIRMED election ballot trickery- not the least of which included Kemp maintaining his job overseeing the election while IN the race- the 2018 GA governor's race will ALWAYS be a question mark.

  • Curtis

    Is it true that she's a lesbo?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    I dunno. I've never seen her talk about it.

    She looks so unhealthy in that picture.

    I wonder what legislation she will pass for the hippopotamus.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She obese which is an indication of mental illness.... she needs to be in a loony bin

  • WhoKnew

    I've heard that a lot of people run for president to pay off bills and line their pockets because they have figured out how to to keep some of the campaign money and redirect it. I think that's the case here.

  • oshh16

    Yeah and no.... I'll be 45 in June and I been called "the ageless wonder" by my cousin Jody, asked do I age all the time by folk that work in my bldg.....so I think a lot of it is how well you are taking care of yourself health wise.

  • Vegas1989

    When I saw the picture him came to my mind and I busted out laughing

  • Coy little wink

    Yes additional factors are at play...

  • NeverSurprised

    They get a huge war chest, and then just sit on it for future endeavors. For instance, although Bernie Sanders lost the democratic primary, he still has $9,094,921 left in his warchest.

  • NeverSurprised

    I can't believe she's only 45 (!!!) With all that bloated weight (and accompanying fatigue), she looks 60.

  • Lady_Elle

    I hope Stacey considers a Senate run first.

  • Itzgoingdown2

    Tell the truth you worried about your crazy check. ???? Politicians work for the people that fund them and both parties are funded by the same people. H'mmm.....

  • TransMichelle
  • Li-Wright

    Oh no don't do it. The Dems are looking really stoopid. Instead of pulling behind 2 or 3 candidates and running them, they've opened the field to everybody...maybe I should run for President.

  • hottlanta

    Who plays identity politics better than whites folks voting for anothet white person bcas they r white. Now if someone else does the same thing it is a problem.

  • Dick Steel

    Why does she always look like she ate somebody?

  • Dick Steel

    YOU your the problem

  • Mary

    Yes, she is over weight (obese) but that has nothing to do with her mental state. What are you talking about? I know a few slender folks whose elevator doesn't go to the top.

  • Mary

    I agree - she needs to lose some weight and work with a personal stylist. Image is everything in our society. Especially when you are a minority. Doesn't matter how educated or experienced you are. I think she needs to run for the senate or governor again. Not ready for President - we have a loony now. Need someone with more experience, international and domestic knowledge.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Agreed. Save the presidency until her 50s.

  • NeverSurprised

    There's no way her body could withstand the rigors of a nationwide campaign. Traveling day and night to all those campaign stops is draining on even the healthiest of candidates. This woman looks like she couldn't walk across the street without collapsing.

  • LaGrl562

    Why don't waste your time the more well known candidates are going to have issues..........................she could not pull off a regional election now you want to go national Presidential!!!

  • bemetoo

    Girl you need to run around a track

  • TransMichelle

    Stop being foolish. All the presidents and most of the people in office have been white and both white and black people voted for them. Get out of the azz of white folks and start thinking about this dam country. Everybody needs to join together not divide. This bloated woman don't stand a chance I don't care what color she is.

  • Wile E. Coli

    nonsense..

  • Samantahrex

    well

  • Thanos of Titan

    This should not have been a thought to cross her mind.

    If she wants to assure that a Democrat takes office next election then she needs to stay out of the race. No need to waste resources on another candidate with improbable odds of winning.

    As a registered Democrat, it's a hard NO for me!

  • Samantahrex

    If you want a Big Extra Income by doing some simple tasks online. you need only basic typing and good internet. and your weekly earning more then 10000 $.

  • BrainChild

    I cracked up at this...but I also wondered why she always looks so uncomfortable in her body.

  • dontgetblocked

    She can't even pay her bills. How is she going to get her hands on hundreds of millions of dollars to run for President. She's such a joke!

  • dontgetblocked

    What?

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Now this is funny!!!!

  • joel adams

    Why she look like a marketing add for bar b q sauce tho? That bih look like the “this is it” campaign.

  • joel adams

    Auntie always posts the most disparaging pics of people.

  • Thanos of Titan

    You don't know the difference between "your" and "you're."

    your- possessive pronoun
    you're - contraction (you are)

    I'm telling you, YOU'RE THE PROBLEM.
    Get off the internet, educate yourself.

    She's just trying to sell books so she can pay her bills.

    I’m going to throw my hat in and run also like everyone else. Hey if DT won why can’t I????

  • Malificent

  • Mister Fantastic

    She need to run to 24 Fitness...

  • Justice For TM

    She is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent but unfortunately, her looks won’t fly. Very sad but true. She’s not likeable

  • Justice For TM

    Andrew Gilium should run

  • Justice For TM

    I was a huge Obama supporter. I’m not feeling Kamala Hairs at all!!! Nah

  • Blak

    She looks incredibly bloated and exhausted; she barely looks like she has the energy to get up from that seat much less run an entire country

  • Junkanoo

    She must have a food addiction like so many others . If shes so intelligent she should have stopped abusing food like some do alcohol. People eat to much meat and eat out to much . She really should go vegetarian or vegan she looks busted and I would say the same about a man.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Doctored consider morbid obesity a sign of mental illness.dont believe in the big boned myth these people sit Around and gorge themselves untill they can barely move

    ADOS ain’t doing a damn thing. Bunch of ignorants who don’t know anything about politics, now talking about they won’t vote for anyone unless they’re ADOS, as if we don’t know there are plenty of ADOS that are worse enemies than a white person.

  • Mikayla

    President Trump is winning, no matter what. Not only is there no one better, but he’s doing a damn good job. The economy is great, and he’s an incumbent. Buckle up!

  • Mikayla

    She admitted he would’ve won anyway. She spoke against the cheating, but admitted he would have won.

  • datjerk

    Theses something about her that I dont trust or like

  • datjerk

    Right

  • Mikayla

    ‘Cause she’s full! Just finished eating! Yes, at every picture. I feel bad saying that but damn. I zoomed in on that stomach... Too much!!!!!

  • Mikayla

    Ooh, is this confirmed? Or Georgia tea? Either way, thanks!

  • Mikayla

    If a person can’t exercise restraint with food, how can they have sense when it comes to a national budget?

  • Mikayla

    I hope they know. I don’t want any suicides when he gets another four years! I think they’ll do better than they did last time after all. Lol

  • B.Loveitt

    She may be over weight but she doesn't look 60 by a long shot...especially those of another hue who are all fit and trim at 35 to 45 and look damn near 70. Dislike the chick all you want but you don't have to lie Craig. White women younger than her and fit wish TF they had her skin. I'm with you when you're right but that comment is outrageous and you know it!

  • Itzgoingdown2

    What has Black political leaders done for the black community the last 50 years?

    The bottom 50 percent of black households are worth less than $1.00. THE BLACK MIDDLE CLASS HAS COLLAPSED and there are no thriving black business districts, in black communities hiring blacks with well paying jobs, IN THIS COUNTRY. 55% of black businesses have revenue OF LESS THAN $10,000! Only 25% of black women are married.

    Whatever benefits blacks get from Extremist Black liberalism is negated by the horrible effects (Deep rooted dysfunction) of that failed ideology.

    1. The government can create more good well paying jobs through Socialism than private business owners ie entrepreneurs can with Capitalism.
    2. Black kids must stay in horrible ghetto public schools.
    3. Black Men are optional and are not needed in the home.
    4. Homosexuality/bisexuality is SAFE and normal for young black males.
    5. Young Black Men. Marching, Protesting the "cause of the day" and fighting the man IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN FEEDING HIS FAMILY.

    All of this is 100% THE FAULT OF BLACK MEN FOLLOWING INCOMPETENT, BUFFOONISH, SELF PROMOTING, SELL OUT EXTREMIST LIBERAL BLACK LEADERS AND LETTING A FAILED LIBERAL IDEOLOGY INTO THEIR HOMES AND BEDROOMS.

    I don't know her weight? Apparently you haven't read any comments. Many are too focused on her weight, which lead me to make the phuckin comment I made. These dumb asses aren't discussing her views/policies...they're making fat jokes. I don't think she should run either but the comments are sad. Oh I'm perfectly great when it comes to my weight, this ass is getting to be a bit much but I'm good. from IG to FB.

    Cheers...

  • B.Loveitt

    That comment makes no sense. I don't know her weight and mine is perfectly fine. Well this azz is getting to be a bit much no matter how much the boys like it. I need to drop 10/15lbs before May, booked for a gig, I HAVE TO FIT THE CLOTHES. Enough about me. Apparently you didn't read many comments. These dumb asses are focused on her weight, not views/polices. Which lead me to make the comment that I made. I don't think she should run either but it doesn't haven't a damn thing to do with her weight.

    Cheers...

  • B.Loveitt

    That's exactly why! My nana said after President Obama and now this orange POS in office. Everybody and they damn mama is going to run for president. SMFH

    ??????

  • B.Loveitt

    That's right!

  • Thanos of Titan

    1) KFC and Arby's are two of my least favorite places to partake in fast food. I have no reason to patronize KFC. I haven't been inside one since my sophomore year of college in 2004.

    2) The correct term is either "Zambo" or "Sambo." "Zsambo" is not a thing. I dare you to look up "Zsambo" and tell me what it means. Do yourself a favor, and read a history book.

    3) You don't seem very intelligent or educated. There isn't anything I can gain from sparring with someone like you, so I say, adieu.

    Wait...what? I'm good even tho this azz is getting to be a bit much no matter how much the boys like it. I gotta a gig mid June, chick gotta be able to wear the clothes. Apparently you haven't read the comments that lead me to my response. These folks are focused on her weight, not her ideas, policies and views. Which is beyond dumb. I don't think she should run either and it ain't got shyt to do with her weight.
