United States Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) has announced his campaign for President in 2020. Early this morning, Booker posted a promotional video to Twitter stating his intent to run and a link to his personal website to view it. In the video, Booker states “We are better when we help each other. The history of our nation is defined by collective action by interwoven destinies of slaves and abolitionists, of those born here and those who chose America as home, of those who took up arms to defend our country, and those who linked arms to challenge and change it,”
Below is the tweet:
