It still hurts to see Republicans turn on their own. Which is exactly the case with one former governor opting to backstab President Donald Trump to further his own prospects.
Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld went turncoat when he announced he would be challenging President Trump for the 2020 Republican presidential nomination.
“I really think if we have six more years of the same stuff we’ve had out of the White House the last two years that would be a political tragedy,” Weld shared on CNN. “So I would be ashamed of myself if I didn’t raise my hand and run.”
The 73 year-old Republican served two terms as governor from 1991-1997, but that experience isn’t nearly enough to make a bid against a president that is still largely supported by his party.
The Republican National Committee was quick to denounce Weld’s declaration in a statement that said, “Any effort to challenge the president’s nomination is bound to go absolutely nowhere.”
