The 2020 election has people on edge on both sides. Many Democrats believe that can make the current president, a one-termer.

People close to the leader of the free world think that liberals have gone too far to the left and with a pretty decent economy, POTUS can keep his base and earn another four years in the Oval Office.

The contrast was brought to light this week. U.S. President Donald Trump seems to still be entirely behind his idea of a grand wall along the Mexican border.

In a rally in Texas, the president took the opportunity to defend his views regarding his wall and added snide remarks towards Beto O’Rourke.

The former congressman and rumored Democratic presidential candidate rallied supporters in El Paso where he criticized Trump’s ideas on immigration.

The former reality TV star referred to O'Rourke as immature and mostly irrelevant.

According to Trump, this is all the result of O’Rourke going through a loss to Ted Cruz.

While O’Rourke made no remarks concerning what happened in November, Trump insisted that it was the primary motivating factor behind the rising star's attitude.

The president also added that he has been enjoying the support he has received from multiple different directions, including thousands of people gathering in the crowds at his rallies.

He contrasted that to the support O’Rourke had received, claiming that the politician has never seen more than a few hundred people in his crowds.

In the end, Trump expressed doubts that O’Rourke would have any real chance in the 2020 election and stated that this might be the end of his campaign.

However, that does not seem to be the case on the other side of the fence, as O’Rourke has reportedly managed to gather a large number of followers, with attention towards him still growing.

One thing is clear at this point -- the 2020 election is going to be among the most interesting the U.S. has ever seen, and it might be a defining moment in the country’s history as a whole.

Can Trump beat O'Rourke in 2020? What kind of immigration views will prevail?
