Joe Walsh to challenge Trump for 2020 GOP nomination

Former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh will challenge United States President Donald Trump for the 2020 Republican nomination, he announced on ABC on Sunday.

Announcing his candidature, Walsh blasted Trump as "unfit" and accused him of lying "virtually every time he opens his mouth." He previously won a seat in Congress in 2010 but subsequently lost it in 2012 and has hosted a radio talk show since then.

Walsh becomes the second Republican to challenge Trump for the 2020 nomination after former Massachusetts governor Bill Weld announced his presidential campaign in April. Weld said that he was "thrilled" that more Republicans were challenging Trump and that more such candidates would lead to a "more robust conversation" that would benefit the country.
