Incumbent President Donald Trump isn’t exactly going to waltz into the republican party’s nomination for 2020, it seems.
Given the controversial nature of the President’s first term, it only fits that his reelection campaign would be wrought with similar sensationalism. Trump has had plenty of detractors, even within his own party at times, but this latest escalation of insider “resistance” could have major implications on the race for the White House next November.
Walsh had said Thursday that he was “strongly, strongly considering” entering the race.
“I’m not trying to be cute or coy. I’ve told you before — if somebody’s going to get in there and go after him … it’s got to be done soon,” Walsh told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.” “You’re running out of time. But more importantly, these are not conventional times. Look at the guy in the White House. These are urgent times.”
Walsh didn’t pull any punches.
On Sunday, Walsh called Trump “nuts,” “erratic,” “cruel” and “incompetent.”
This marks the second challenger to Trump officially entering the primary race, after former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld announced similar intentions just weeks ago.
