Former Gov. Bill Weld forms exploratory committee to potentially primary Trump

Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld is forming a presidential exploratory committee, which is the first step to running for President. If Weld decides to run, he would become a primary challenger for President Trump in the 2020 race.

In a statement on his Twitter page, Weld says,  “It is time for all people of good will to take a stand and plant a flag…It’s for this reason that I have today established an Exploratory Committee to pursue the possibility for my running for the Presidency of the United States as a Republican in the 2020 election.”

He also told an audience at the Politics & Eggs breakfast in Bedford, N.H, the President is a “schoolyard bully” and “simply too unstable to carry out the duties of the highest executive office in the land.”

“We don’t need six more years of the antics we’ve seen,” he added. “We need to install leaders who know character counts.”

Weld also believes the United States should rejoin the Paris Climate Accords, criticized tariffs and does not think illegal immigrants should have a pathway to citizenship.

The former governor ran as Libertarian Gary Johnson’s VP pick during the last Presidential race, but has since gone back to the Republican party.
