Democratic Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio said on Thursday he would not enter the 2020 U.S. presidential race, promising in a statement to fight Republican President Donald Trump by continuing to serve in Congress.
Brown, a liberal with strong ties to the labor movement and a lengthy record of fighting for workers, cited the number of other Democratic candidates seeking the party’s presidential nomination and said he was confident they would also fight for “the dignity of work.”

Trump says he’s ‘very seriously’ looking at changing constitutionally-mandated right to US citizenship
President Donald Trump says he is looking “very seriously” at altering a constitutional right to citizenship at birth. The president made his remarks during a press gaggle during which he also called himself “the chosen one” as he looked up at the sky. Those remarks came just hours after he tweeted praise calling him “the second coming of God” and “the King of Israel.”
Trump could not stop ranting about Obama when asked about cancelled Denmark trip during rambling 40-minute press gaggle
Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, responding to President Donald Trump’s offer to purchase Greenland, stressed that the island is not for sale — and Trump responded this week by canceling a trip to Denmark he had planned. Trump has maintained that he believes Frederiksen was being disrespectful, and during a press conference outside the White House on Wednesday, Trump used the cancelation as an excuse to bash former President Barack Obama — telling reporters that foreign countries, including Denmark, cannot get away with the type of disrespect they showed the United States when Obama was in the White House.
Trump has now humiliated his own ambassador to Denmark twice in just one day
President Donald Trump's statements about the Danish government over the past 24 hours have made things awkward for Carla Sands, the former soap opera actress and chiropractor whom the president appointed to be America's ambassador to Denmark.
On Tuesday, Sands sent out a tweet that hyped up the president's scheduled visit to Denmark -- only to have the president announce on Twitter that he was canceling the event just hours later because the country's prime minister would not entertain his pitch to sell Greenland to the United States.
