Democrats are lining up to challenge Trump in 2020.
Defeating Trump is their biggest goal in the next two years.
But now it isn’t just Democrats working to take him down, and you won’t believe who is challenging Trump in the Republican Primaries.
It’s no surprise that there are many in the Republican party looking to take down President Trump.
While the voters overwhelmingly stand with the president, the party elites can’t stand him and want him gone just as much as the Democrats do.
So it’s no surprise that there are already Republicans considering challenging Trump during the primaries.
And for the first time, one is finally announcing his run.
The first person to formally announce their run against Trump during the 2016 election is former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld.
This is shocking, considering the fact that Weld is hardly a Republican.
Despite being a Republican during his time as governor in the nineties, he has since left the party, running as the Vice Presidential candidate during the 2016 election for the Libertarian Party.
But now magically he’s a Republican again, despite him opposing the Party on many issues.
Weld supports abortion up until the point of birth, including partial birth abortions.
And despite his so-called libertarian beliefs, Weld was a huge supporter of banning “assault weapons” while governor.
He wasn’t able to succeed and needed to rely on a future Governor, Mitt Romney, who is now serving in the U.S. Senate, to finish the job for him and sign the bill into law.
His run as a Libertarian in 2016 was a massive joke, even more of a joke than the Libertarian Party usually is.
During his run, Weld all but gave his endorsement to Hillary Clinton in the closing days of his campaign, while attacking Trump constantly.
Speaking to Rachel Maddow, he describes his relationship with Hillary, stating that he’s “known her for 40 years,” and that he “worked with her.”
He goes on to describe her as someone with “high moral character,” and as an honest, reliable person.
After giving his glowing statements of praise for Hillary, he went on to basically endorse her, saying:
“Well I’m here vouching for Mrs. Clinton and I think it’s high time somebody did, and I’m doing it based on my personal experience with her and I think she deserves to have people vouch for her other than members of the Democratic National Committee, so I’m here to do that.”
This is currently the best bet that the “NeverTrump” movement in the Republican Party has to take down Trump.
Weld is a joke to anybody who is serious in politics, and since leaving his position as Governor of Massachusetts, has virtually zero chance of ever winning office again.
But he seems to think he can take on President Trump, and his overwhelming popularity in the Republican Party.
Do you think any Republican could stand a chance against Trump in a primary election?
