President Trump on Monday downplayed recent polling that shows him trailing a number of Democratic hopefuls in hypothetical 2020 match-ups, calling the group of Democratic hopefuls a “Motley Crew” while saying it is “too early” to be focused on the race for the White House.
“Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that,” Trump tweeted.
Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

There is still a long way to go before the primaries and the 2020 presidential election.
This time four years ago, Trump had just launched his campaign and entered the Republican primary as the clear underdog. He was polling well below the crowded Republican primary field before eventually surging to the party nomination and the presidency.
