Sarah Huckabee Sanders predicts Warren will be the Democratic nominee

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders predicted in a new interview that the 2020 Democratic Party nominee for president will be Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

The former Trump aide told John Catsimatidis on AM 970’s “The Answer” that Warren will likely be the nominee due to the momentum the Massachusetts senator has seen in recent weeks.

But Sanders added that an outcome would be beneficial to President Trump.

“The far-left radical ideas that she’s bringing to the table are just not going to sell in most of America. And I think that is a great thing … for the country — because it helps make sure that we get four more years under this president,” she added.

Sanders went on to predict that Warren would not make a pivot towards more centrist policies after winning the contentious Democratic primary, which has seen battles over progressive ideas such as Medicare-for-all.

“Elizabeth Warren, I don’t think she wants to come back to the middle,” Sanders said. “I think she believes that the far left side is right. I think it’s a scary thing for America if she became president.”

Warren has surged in some recent polls and now sits in second place behind Vice President Joe Biden (D) in some polls of early primary states, while being closely followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).
