And they should be.

President Donald Trump’s advisers are more worried about the rise of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren than any other 2020 Democratic contender, The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman reported.
Trump, who frequently derides Warren as “Pocahontas,” is apparently convinced he can “hate-tweet her away,” but his advisers don’t share that view.
They also “see her ability to capitalize on the populist/outsider energy he ran on in 2016 and has tried to recreate despite holding office,” Haberman wrote.
Warren is the best-known candidate who has not previously run for president and considered to be a strong general-election contender against Trump.
She also overlaps considerably with the bases of Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Vice President Joe Biden. Insider polling found that 50% of Biden supporters and 57% of Sanders supporters would also be happy with Warren as the Democratic nominee.
As I posted earlier Elizabeth Warren is also the strong second choice for supporters of the three candidates to drop out most recently, Jay Inslee, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Seth Moulton.
So it makes sense that Trump’s advisers are worried about her becoming the Democratic candiate.
I think that Trump himself believes his main worry is Joe Biden, probably because his misogyny refuses to accept that a woman could beat him, but I also think that Warren is the person he should fear the most.
As I have said before whether or not she wins the nomination is up for debate, but the question of whether she SHOULD win the nomination I think is obvious.
