DEMOCRATIC DO-OVERS IN CROWDED FIELD? With 22 Democratic presidential candidates, some are attempting to reset their campaign — such as Sen. Kamala Harris taking on Trump more. The co-hosts discuss if they think this will be effective. https://t.co/cVclFZQmjA pic.twitter.com/FYIccPsykS— The View (@TheView) May 14, 2019
The co-hosts discuss the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates attempting to re-brand. They discuss Kamala's apron photo (her husband snapped a picture of her cooking jerk chicken on Mother's Day) which led people to question her authenticity. Sunny likes Kamala a lot and Meghan says that women shouldn't have to take these kinds of photos to appeal to more voters.
Beto O’Rourke on criticisms of his ‘Vanity Fair’ “born to be in it” remark: “I was attempting to say that I felt my calling was in public service — no one is born to be President of the United States of America.”— The View (@TheView) May 14, 2019

Beto acknowledges his privilege in being able to travel after he lost his Senate race and the many privileges that men like him have. He mentions the gender and racial pay gap. Joy asks if he made a mistake going on the cover of Vanity Fair and Beto appears to agree. He talks about calling himself a "part-time dad" which he regrets.
“We’re not going to put kids in cages — we’re not going to deport their moms,” @BetoORourke says explaining his immigration and border control policy. “We are going to do everything within our power to reunite those families who have been separated.” https://t.co/f8u2wc159S pic.twitter.com/8OTZfa9mLW— The View (@TheView) May 14, 2019
Beto is against abolishing ICE. He is supportive of DREAMers and making them into U.S. citizens so they don't have to fear deportation.
.@BetoORourke on if he will partake in name-calling, as Pres. Trump has done in the past: “We cannot descend into more of that division, and bitterness and hatred and racism that so defines that man in his presidency.” https://t.co/TJd7goVH6t pic.twitter.com/Jcz3FjGNJP— The View (@TheView) May 14, 2019
Joy asks Beto how he will handle Trump. Beto says we have to elevate the conversation and get away from the name-calling. He mentions the mosque that was burned down in Victoria, Texas last year which he links to Trump's hateful rhetoric.
After @BetoORourke praised @StaceyAbrams for meeting defeat in #GAGOV with “grace,” he told @TheView he finds it “hard to imagine a scenario where I wouldn’t be fortunate enough to also run with one of these extraordinary women in our country.” https://t.co/TJd7goVH6t pic.twitter.com/3c0ZnVbWt1— The View (@TheView) May 14, 2019
Joy asks if Beto would have a woman like Stacey Abrams on the ticket with him even though she said she would not run for vice president. Beto says Stacey Abrams is a hero to him and she may run for president herself.
