Eric Holder has spoken to his immediate team and announced that he will be running for President of the Untied States in 2020, so move over Kanye you’ve unlocked an opponent.
Holder told Yahoo! News that he will be transitioning into his career further with a new challenge.
“Up to now, I have been more behind-the-scenes. But that’s about to change. I have a certain status as the former attorney general. A certain familiarity as the first African-American attorney general. There’s a justified perception that I’m close to President [Barack] Obama. So I want to use whatever skills I have, whatever notoriety I have, to be effective in opposing things that are, at the end of the day, just bad for the country.” Holder said in his Yahoo! News statement, and continues on his assertion below.
“Now is the time to be more visible. Now is the time to be heard,” He continued. “I thought, frankly, along with everybody else, that after the election, with Hillary Clinton as president, I could walk off the field. So when she didn’t win, I thought, ‘We’ll have to see how this plays out.’ But it became clear relatively soon—and certainly sooner than I expected—that I had to get back on the field and be ineffective opposition.”
When Holder was the Attorney-General during the Obama Administration he was humbled, attentive and with nonchalant mannerisms within his incumbency, so taking a stand for a presidential seat is still slightly out of his element. However, we are all rooting for the time when it comes. Like many citizens of America, we are just tired of our “leaders” bickering on television to the point that satire is no longer funny, and the reality.
