Failed Libertarian Vice-Presidential Candidate to Challenge Trump in Republican Primary

Trump likely won’t even acknowledge Weld as an opponent.

The man whose name appeared on the Libertarian Party ticket next to former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson during the 2016 election said Monday he will challenge President Donald J. Trump in the 2020 primary.

“Ours is a nation built on courage, resilience, and independence. In these times of great political strife, when both major parties are entrenched in their ‘win at all cost’ battles, the voices of the American people are being ignored and our nation is suffering,” Bill Weld said in a statement.

Johnson and Weld got crushed in 2016. The pair did not even poll well enough to be allowed on national debate stages, and in an election during which Libertarians were expected to make headway, managed only 3.27 percent of the vote, or just over 4 million total votes.

“It is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant a flag. It is time to return to the principles of Lincoln — equality, dignity, and opportunity for all,” Weld’s statement continued. “There is no greater cause on earth than to preserve what truly makes America great. I am ready to lead that fight.”

CNN’s Manu Raju said that Weld plans to focus especially on the state of New Hampshire during the primary.

Weld was a Republican governor of Massachusetts who advocated for gun control in the 1990’s. He was also known for his gubernatorial administration’s push for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to implement an electric car mandate. He also endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008.

He only rejoined the Republican Party again in February after his brief stint of Libertarianism.

From Republican, to endorsing a Democrat, to Libertarian, and back again, Weld is poised to add another chapter to his bizarre political career in 2020.

Who is he waving to?

Joe Biden appeared to wave to absolutely no one as he walked off the stairway to a private jet in Florida earlier this week.

Who could he possibly be waving to?

Biden doesn’t have millions of energetic supporters who will arrive at the airport to greet him, unlike President Trump. The Democratic nominee was arriving in Tampa, Florida, for a few scripted campaign events in the swing state where new polling reveals he’s losing the Hispanic demographic to President Trump, an unprecedented demographic swing in the recent history of the state’s elections.

There appear to be a few airport employees in the distance, but they seem to be facing the other way.

Biden’s campaign team called a ‘lid’ on his day of active campaigning on Saturday… at the ripe hour of 8:35 in the morning.

This is quite concerning. A President should be cognitively sharp and acutely aware of his surroundings. Biden’s latest gaffe appears to do little more than raise even more questions about his mental acuity.
