Eric HolderA California-based conservative black activist says former Attorney General Eric Holder should be in jail, not considering a run for president.

During a recent breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, Holder said he would make his decision by the end of the year. He joins New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and California Senator Kamala Harris as high-profile blacks who could be challenging for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

But Jesse Lee Peterson, founder and president of The Brotherhood Organization of a New Destiny (BOND), says Holder "has no chance."

"If anything, he should be jail," Peterson continues. "He was an awful, awful attorney general. When I think about Fast and Furious, when I think about the IRS scandal, when I think about scandal after scandal concerning Eric Holder, there is no way that Eric Holder will ever become a president of this great nation."

And Peterson does not think America is ready to elect another black liberal Democrat president.

"I can't see America ever electing a person like Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Eric Holder, or any other of those black liberals," the BOND founder submits. "They know that these people would bring America to her knees. The folks have had enough of that. They said no to that when they elected President Trump. They don't want someone that's going to destroy the country."

Peterson believes President Trump will continue to make inroads among black voters heading toward 2020.
