The 2020 presidential campaign of Horatio Eden, an English university student and King of the Free City-State of Edenopolis, was informally launched on Twitter[1] by Eden on the 10th of November, 2016, just under four years prior to the election for which he intends to stand, in response to the election of now U.S. President-elect, Donald Trump of New York.

The campaign has few policies; numbering among them are a general stance against the policies of Republican President-elect Trump, as well as advocating for the dissolution of the Electoral College[2], citing it as undemocratic.

It is presently unclear whether Eden's is a serious candidacy; though he has commented "I'm serious" on the subject, the Constitution of the United States debars him from running on multiple accounts. By the time of the 2020 election, scheduled for the 3rd of November, 2020, Eden will not have had time to be resident in the United States for a period of 14 years, nor will he be aged 35 or over. Moreover, he is not a natural-born US citizen as understood by the Supreme Court ruling in Lynch v. Clarke in 1844.

Petition

On the 12th of December, 2016, 2020 candidate Horatio Eden filed a petition with the White House website requesting to be appointed President with immediate effect. The petition has yet to achieve the 100,000 signatures required to receive a response.
