2020 Challenger Thinks It’s ‘Terrific’ More Republicans Are Challenging Trump in 2020 Primary

When it comes to the latest additional Republican primary challenger jumping in, former Gov. Bill Weld (R-Mass.) is “thrilled” more Republicans are running against President Donald Trump.

While Trump holds 84% of support from Republicans on job approval, some Republican challengers are looking to take the president’s spot in the 2020 presidential election.

“I’m thrilled about Joe Walsh and Mark Sanford getting in, I think that’s terrific,” Weld said during Sunday’s interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He added that it’d be “a more robust conversation.”

Weld is now among the two Republicans challenging Trump thus far, as former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) jumped into the race on Sunday. Walsh told ABC’s “This Week” that the president is “unfit” and “somebody needs to step up” against him in 2020.

Former Gov. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) is also mulling a presidential bid. He told NBC on Sunday that he’ll “make [his] decision by Labor Day.”

Asked if Trump deserves re-election in 2020, Weld responded, “Absolutely not.”

“Mr. Trump is going to pay back all his enemies. Pay back for what? It’s another example of his extreme malignant narcissism. He’s only happy when others are losing. … He makes sure his vendors get paid 5 and 10 cents on a dollar while he and his rich banker friends walk off with hundreds of billions of dollars.”

Watch Weld’s interview below:

As IJR Red reported, Trump’s re-election campaign doesn’t seem worried about the growing list of Republican primary challengers. The Trump team responded to the latest challenger, Walsh, telling ABC’s Jonathan Karl, “Whatever.”

Just another rino, who will eventually kiss Democrat’s a$$.
In effect, take votes away from Trump, who is doing great, as far as I’m concerned.
I still remember, what Ross Perot did.

At least Weld will get name recognition which may not be such a good thing since he is going to lose anyway

I don’t understand why they call these people challengers like it’d a fight they have a chance in or earned the right to challenge the champion. These guys will be lucky to get 5% of the republican bases support actually they seem to be more like Democrats campaigning as Republican to garner attention. They have as much a chance of being the candidate as I do waking up tomorrow with the abilities of Superman.
