Julián Castro 2020 

Julian Castro, Secretary of HUD in the Obama administration and a former mayor of San Antonio, Texas,

…vowed to introduce universal pre-kindergarten for American children by expanding a program he introduced as mayor of San Antonio. He also promised to bring the US back into the Paris climate change agreement with his first executive order and pledged comprehensive immigration and criminal justice reform. He named a number of unarmed black men and women killed by police in recent years, in impassioned support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Castro spent little time criticizing the Republican currently in the White House, but with reference to his recent visit to the border in south Texas, where he decried a “crisis”, Castro said: “Well, there is a crisis today – it’s a crisis of leadership. Donald Trump has failed to uphold the values of our great nation.”
