Bill Weld Announces He’s Officially Running Against Trump in 2020 GOP Primary

‘I’m announcing that I’m running for president of the United States as a Republican against the president in 2020’

TAPPER: "We have some breaking news in our 2020 lead. The former two-term Republican governor of Massachusetts, Bill Weld, is here with me, live in studio, and Mr. Weld has something to announce. Governor?"

WELD: "Jake, I'm announcing that I'm running for president of the United States as a Republican against President Trump in 2020."

TAPPER: "So you're hoping to take him on in the primaries?"

WELD: "In the primaries. 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 and I would fear for the Republic. So I would be ashamed of myself if I didn't raise my hand and run."
