    San Antonio (CNN)Former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro officially announced his presidential bid in San Antonio on Saturday, beginning a campaign that will look to turn his uniquely American immigrant story into a direct repudiation of President Donald Trump.

    "When my grandmother got here almost a hundred years ago, I'm sure she never could have imagined that just two generations later, one of her grandsons would be serving as a member of the United States Congress and the other would be standing with you here today to say these words: I am a candidate for President of the United States of America," Castro said.

    It looked like Julián Castro and sounded a lot like him, but confirmation that he plans to run for president in 2020 came from his identical twin, Joaquín Castro.

    swordsmyth, you have similar sentiments about other Cuban heritage Congress members like Cruz and Rubio or just in this case?

    Folks with Cuban heritage might see such comment as racist.

    President Trump is the son of an Immigrant mother, for whatever that's worth. Nothing.

    The establishment doesn’t just throw candidates out there randomly. They are vetted (compromised?), groomed and selected far in advance. A prime speech at a party convention is always a good indicator of candidates being prepped.

    Here was Julian Castro in 2012:
