Report: Here are the 2020 candidates Trump's team is worried about

Donald Trump is reportedly already looking ahead to the 2020 election and has his team looking into the backgrounds of potential challengers.

According to the New York Post, Trump's team looked into four Democrats, including Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and "Shark Tank" star Mark Cuban.

Sources close to the Post say the current administration is threatened by these potential opponents because of their ability to raise money and support quickly.

However, the White House's "biggest fear," according to the report, is fellow political outside Mark Cuban.

"He's not a typical candidate," as insider told the Post. "He appeals to a lot of people the same way Trump did."

"If you believe in the Trump revolution, you can believe a candidate like Mark Cuban could win an election." "And Mark is the kind of guy who would drop half a billion dollars of his own money on the race."

The pair of billionaires got into a public squabble on Twitter over the weekend, with Cuban even tweeting a screenshot of an email he sent to then presidential candidate Trump in 2016 saying, "I may go after that job some day and it could be against you," referring to possibly running for president in the future.

Surprisingly enough, the New York Post says Governor Andrew Cuomo, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand are not on the list of potential challengers.
