Ventura Says He’ll Run For President If Hillary Is Democratic Nominee
Former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura says he will consider running for President as an independent if Hillary Clinton becomes the Democratic nominee over Bernie Sanders.
Ventura reasoned that the country will be fed up of establishment candidates being thrust down their throats, and that Donald Trump is too much of a pro-war hawk.
“They’re setting the groundwork for me because if Bernie loses, by the time we get to June, how sick are the people going to be of all these people,” Ventura told the reporters.
“If it’s Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio, the chances are better. I don’t want the revolution to die if Bernie gets beat.” Ventura added.
Envisioning his own presidential campaign, the former Navy SEAL declared, somewhat tongue in cheek, “Jesse Ventura is a bright, shining new face who comes riding in on a white stallion to save the country.”
“See, I’m an independent and I despise the two parties,” Ventura added, clarifying that “I love what Trump’s doing to the Republicans. He’s got them in complete disarray. In fact, it looks like the WWE when you watch their debates.”
“I support the revolution of what’s happening here,” Ventura said, noting “There’s three things where I stand with Bernie on more so than Trump. Number one is campaign finance reform,” two is “the war,” and three is ending the War on Drugs.
