Who is Bill Weld? Donald Trump facing shock 2020 Republican challenge

Bill Weld Who Pretty Much Endorsed Hillary Clinton In 2016 Will Challenge Donald Trump In 2020

Weld added that "he believes that we must preserve the democratic institutions of our Republic: the rule of law, a free and open press, and America's global leadership in maintaining a freer, safer world".

"It is time for patriotic men and women across our great nation to stand and plant a flag", Weld said in a statement.

Weld later stated that he doesn't think he would run as an independent if he doesn't win the Republican nomination.

Weld, said on Monday (local time) in the channel CNN that he is going to apply for the candidacy of his party for the presidential election in November of next year.

Tim Cook, Apple CEO, also tweeted a promise that Cupertino will be helping finance the rebuilding efforts. Some were lost to humanity forever in the blaze that ravaged the Paris cathedral Monday.

Alternately a politician, federal prosecutor, investment banker, lobbyist and even novelist - his political mystery called "Mackerel by Moonlight" was published to mixed reviews in 1998 - the Harvard-educated scion of a prominent Boston family was a lifelong Republican before bolting the GOP to run on the Libertarian Party ticket with former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson in 2016. Before becoming governor of Massachusetts, Weld served as a USA attorney, appointed by President Reagan.

But Republican leaders have signaled little tolerance for intra-party fights as Trump gears up for a potentially challenging bid for a second term.

In February, Weld told ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz on This Week that he was was considering a primary challenge because "we don't have six more years of the antics frankly, for want of a better word, that we've seen the last two years. Integrity. Independence." After his "historic victory", Weld "cut taxes 21 times", "balanced the budget", "reformed welfare", and went on to win re-election "by the widest margin ever" in the state's history, the video states. "I'll be active in the Mid-Atlantic states, particularly NY, also Pennsylvania and DE and Maryland and a bunch of other states out West". The 73-Year-old is the first Republican, the Trump challenge. "The country deserves to have some fiscal constraint and conservatism".

"I spent seven years in the Justice Department trying to keep the politics out of law enforcement, he's trying to put it in", Weld said. "That's a ... serious matter in the Oval Office". He also generally agrees with the Left's view of climate change, though he also holds conservative and libertarian economic views. "That's a real threat to us as a country", Weld said.
