Former Democratic Mayor of San Antonio and then Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, Julian Castro (pictured), announced on Saturday that he is running for president of the United States in 2020. He made the announcement in both English and Spanish.

In a speech, the 44-year-old politician from Texas said: "There is a crisis today, it's a crisis of leadership. Donald Trump has failed to uphold the values of our great nation."

Castro joins Democrats Kamala Harris and Tulsi Gabbard in the race to challenge the incumbent President Donald Trump. Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is almost certain to run as well, after she announced an exploratory committee for 2020 presidential elections.
