President Trump has dismissed the growing field of Democratic presidential hopefuls, saying he’s “not impressed” with the group and doesn’t “see anybody” with a chance to beat him. 

He makes the comment in an advanced clip released by CBS News’ Face the Nation where host Margaret Brennan asks about Senator Cory Booker’s entrance in the 2020 race. 

Trump says of the New Jersey lawmaker: “He’s got no chance…I know him. I don’t think he has a chance.” 

And when Brennan asks him who has a chance, the president says: “So far, I don’t see anybody….I’m not impressed with their group.” 

However, a New York Times report last month noted that Trump views former Vice President Joe Biden as his “most dangerous potential opponent.”

According to the Times, the president was “especially fixated” on Biden and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as possible Democratic challengers in 2020. 

While Warren has started the process for entering the race, Biden has not yet announced his decision.

A separate Times report from last month stated that Biden “is in the final stages of deciding whether to run for president and has told allies he is skeptical the other Democrats eyeing the White House can defeat President Trump.” 

Polls have consistently ranked Biden ahead of Trump and other leading Democratic contenders in favorability ratings.
