A second person has mounted a challenge to US President Donald Trump for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination in 2020.
Joe Walsh, a former congressman for the state of Illinois and radio talk show host, announced his bid on Sunday, saying the incumbent president of the United States was unfit for office and must be denied a second term.
“He’s nuts. He’s erratic. He’s cruel. He stokes bigotry. He’s incompetent. He doesn’t know what he’s doing,” Walsh told national television ABC’s This Week.
The 57-year-old portrayed himself as a legitimate alternative in a party where he said many are opposed to Trump but are “scared to death” of saying so
