DNC chair confident Dems can beat Trump in 2020

Tom Perez (pictured), the chairman of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), said on Thursday that he believes the Democratic candidate can "absolutely" beat President Donald Trump and deny him a second term in office.

Speaking at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast, Perez claimed that the Democrats' success in the midterm election showed they "can win everywhere." The DNC chair added that his party must "expand the electorate" and "compete everywhere" in order to secure a victory over Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

In the midterms earlier this week, Democrats managed to take control of the House of Representatives for the first time since 2010, but failed to secure the majority in the Senate. Meanwhile, Trump has expressed confidence he will be reelected in 2020, no matter who the Democratic Party decides to nominate to run against him.
