Top Ten People Who Should Not Run in the 2020 United States Presidential Race

Here is list of people who may be eyeing the presidency that stand no chance or simply aren't what America needs.

The Top Ten

1 Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

President Trump is currently looking at around a 30% approval rating that is actively decreasing with time, and is currently facing a federal investigation which involves his own collusion with a foreign power. In that investigation, three close associates with the president have been indicted and evidence continues to surface pointing to the fact that President Trump and other members of his campaign colluded with individuals within the Russian government. President Trump has bragged about sexual assault and has been accused of such behavior by 17 women who have shared their believable stories publicly. President Trump has desperately tried to dodge criticism by attacking the integrity of numerous media outlets, and has only done interviews with Fox News, a right-wing news source that has showered Trump with praise and support. Fox News also has a poor history of accurately reporting the news, which is why it is so unfortunate that it is the president's only source of news. President ...more - GrimmShady

I'm voting this man! We have experienced the lowest unemployment rate in 20 years, lower taxes, millions of new jobs, working to denuclearize North Korea and make peace with them, making a fool out of Hollywood and the mainstream media, protecting America's borders, capturing 5 Isis leaders, bringing Isis to its knees, and I LOVE how he keeps updating the American people about recent activities. Forget about the haters that complain about his behavior, this man does his job, and without pay too! - DoroExploro13

Let's be honest here. There may be people defending him saying that he's actually doing something regarding North Korea and all that stuff, but is it really showing? Sure, Kim Jong Un is more of the problem here and I'd be hard-pressed to see any other president deal with him with ease, but what's Trump got to show for his diplomatic skills? People say Obama was a sitting duck, but at least he wasn't some reckless warhead and he has shown his worth as a diplomatic negotiator (ex. Cuba and the Paris Agreement). Trump? Okay, so he does have his good speeches, but more often than not, it's overshadowed by his negative traits. He's always blasting it up on Twitter by making tweets that insult those who oppose him rather than being rational like any president should, he hasn't even tried to achieve most of his agenda that he proposed during his presidential campaign (some of which he's even contradicted such as supporting small businesses even though him supporting the repeal of net ...more - ModernSpongeBobSucks

This incompetent, asinine, inept, illiterate, self serving buffoon is unfit for any job, let alone the job of running the country He makes enemies on a daily basis and didn't know that policies could be complicated.He has accomplished nothing and embarrassingly takes credit for the economy which every singe economist has attributed to Obama's consistent efforts.

2 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

I think that those people who are already famous for non-political reasons should not run for president unless they study politics and learn to make the best out of them. Also, I think that voters should also study politics a bit more too. - Nonpointed

I know how Kanye feels and thinks in certain situations because I actually listen to what the hell he's saying in his songs, which everyone seems to overlook. I'm not trying to say that people are completely wrong when they say he's a jerk or a jackass because he's done a lot of dumb things in his life, but I feel for the dude because he has gone through a lot of crap since his mother died. The pressure he gets from the media, the paparazzi constantly stalking him, people judging him for EVERY SINGLE THING HE DOES (like marrying Kim and naming his kids Saint and North. What the actual hell is wrong with these names in any form or fashion? ). I feel like this constant pressure from others is what drives him into a controversial mess, and I can't help but sympathize for him.

This doesn't mean that I want him to be president, though. I do know that he has good intentions (because he talks about them in his music, mostly his old stuff) but I think he's too unstable to handle it or ...more - Mcgillacuddy

If the village idiot really decides to run for president I'm gonna seriously blow!

Having him as my nation's president is already enough to give me a serious heart attack... - DarkMatter1997

3 Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician who was a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2008 and 2016 elections.

Screw Clinton and her plethora of lies and deceit. Furthermore, I would be really pissed off if she gets back into play. There's a reason the Democratic Party lost, because Hillary was incompetent and (in spite of having more experience than Trump) her political career and achievements aren't even good. - CrimsonShark

I hate trump but he should have locked clinton in jail. - DarkBoi-X

That picture though...

Should be in jail is stupid lier stole codes over all just dumb

4 Mark Zuckerberg Mark Zuckerberg Mark Elliot Zuckerberg is an American technology entrepreneur and philanthropist. He is known for co-founding and leading Facebook as its chairman and chief executive officer.

Look at me! I'm rich and I made website where people whine about their lives and post pictures of their food! Please give me the most powerful role in the world." I think Mark Zuckerberg is an intelligent guy and all but no thanks. - GrimmShady

5 Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders Bernard "Bernie" Sanders is an independent American Senator from Vermont and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

I wish he could, considering he's actually pretty decent and there's a lot I can agree upon. I also think having a Jewish president would be pretty fresh and unique. In addition, America shouldn't base everything on Christian values, especially politics. Britain's political problems are less compared the the United States, and Britain hardly ever brings up Christianity in politics, at least nowadays. - CrimsonShark

A very nice guy, and is almost the only politician I would want living next door to me, but he is the last person I would ever vote for.

I wouldn't mind Bernie running he's pretty likable compared to Trump and Clinton. - CaptainMowzker

He seems okay. At least he’s not Hillary Clinton - Randomator

She is married to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, and is the first African-American First Lady of the United States.

For me personally, she doesn't seem like a bad choice for president. I've barely heard anything controversial about her and I love what she stands for when it comes to America's youth and the rest of the country. I wouldn't mind her being a Democratic candidate. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She would be much better female president than that liar and war criminal Hillary Clinton. - DarkBoi-X

7 Elizabeth Warren Elizabeth Warren Elizabeth Ann Warren is an American academic and politician. She is a member of the Democratic Party and is the senior United States Senator from Massachusetts.
8 Alex Jones Alex Jones

You mean the crazy talk show host from InfoWars? Yeah, judging by that face and his rabid alt-right leaning claims, I wouldn't want this guy going anything beyond being a conspiracy theorist nutjob. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

9 Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.

Democrats have become hypocrites in their potential choices...

This is coming from someone who would identify himself as a Light-Democrat. - CrimsonShark

10 Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne The Rock Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

NO! And with the sudden urge of celebrities wanting to take the White House, the United States's political stature may start to get questioned for having a leader who isn't very experienced in politics. - CrimsonShark

People are actually getting serious about this and to that I say no no no! No more inexperienced rich people! (Also, the Rock is partly Canadian and we don't want that crap down here.) - GrimmShady

I want Dwayne to become president - Carri796

He'd have to be better than Trump, because at least the Rock isn't a jerk. - EliHbk

Politically he isn't that bad but Martin O'Malley has done rallies where literally one person has shown up. Google it. He is so boring and inauthentic that nobody likes him, and the dems will definitely lose if this is their nominee. - GrimmShady

25 Ted Nugent Ted Nugent Theodore Anthony "Ted" Nugent is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and far right activist. Nugent initially gained fame as the lead guitarist of the Amboy Dukes, a band formed in 1963 that played psychedelic rock and hard rock.
