Trump Has a GOP Challenger

Bill Weld officially announces he’s challenging Trump for GOP nomination in 2020

Donald Trump, best known as the inventor of the four-hour workday, will not secure the Republican nomination for President unchallenged: Bill Weld, the former Republican Governor of MA, officially announced his candidacy for the nomination on Monday.

In a statement, Weld said: "Ours is a nation built on courage, resilience, and independence".

"America has a choice", says the narrator of a video announcing Weld's candidacy.

She also said the deal "ended 700 years of conflict" and is "a model to the world", the BBC added. In London, Pelosi stressed that getting a trade bill through Congress is "no given" at any time.

This story is still developing.

Weld said he will not run as an Independent if he does not win the Republican nomination. While Trump's overall approval ratings have been poor for much of his presidency, he remains popular with Republican voters.

Weld has previously run for federal office in the U.S. as a candidate for vice president on the Libertarian Party ticket in 2016, alongside presidential candidate Gary Johnson. Weld was on the ticket as a Libertarian vice presidential candidate in 2016. And while he's calling for a return to "principles" and "dignity", Weld clearly isn't shy about using some of Trump's most-maligned past comments against him. The 73-year-old described himself to Jake Tapper as a Republican "who works across the aisle and gets things done".

"Same way today, too - the puck's going in and it's giving me a lot of confidence". "He's been doing that since the new year". This is only the fourth time the Blues have won the first two games of a series while starting on the road, and they are 3-0.

Fiscally conservative but socially liberal, Weld is known for an unconventional, at times quirky, political style and a long history of friction with the party he now seeks to lead.

The video says that Weld was the first Republican governor of MA in more than 20 years, calls him a "crime fighter" who as governor cut taxes, reformed the welfare program and balanced the state's budget, while making the state safer.

He added that he feels Trump "mocks the rule of law". The former governor has called on Americans to stand up against the "schoolyard bully" in the Oval Office.

Fair or not, the main criticism of Swihart centers around his ability to play catcher at a high level and manage a pitching staff. Leon, who is due almost $2.5 million in 2019, went unclaimed on waivers and was sent to Pawtucket shortly before the season.

And, while Weld sees blame on both sides of the aisle for the divisiveness coming from Washington, he said Trump is the "grand master" of the problem.
