Bill Weld, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts, is reportedly looking to make a move toward a primary challenge against President Trump.
On Friday, Weld headlined the “Politics and Eggs” event in New Hampshire, something the New England Council describes as “a must-stop on the presidential campaign trail.”
Held in the first-in-the-nation primary state, “Politics and Eggs” has been host to nearly every major party presidential candidate throughout the years.
With Weld headlining, speculation has been running rampant about a challenge. He addressed those rumors announcing an exploratory committee to challenge the President for the Republican Party’s 2020 nomination.
If a candidate fails miserably in the woods and no one notices or cares, is he really a candidate?

Aside from Friday’s event, Weld’s schedule indicates a return to New Hampshire in two weeks when he will attend New England College’s Town Hall Meeting Series, a popular event for White House contenders.
Weld also switched his party affiliation again, flipping back from Libertarian to Republican recently.
He told the Boston Globe that Friday’s speech “will deal comprehensively with my thoughts about the 2020 election.”
Weld Despises Trump
During the 2016 campaign, running on a ticket with Gary Johnson, Weld told supporters “Mr. Trump’s proposals in the foreign policy area, including nuclear proliferation, tariffs, and free trade, would be so hurtful, domestically and in the world, that he has my full attention.”
He apparently didn’t give it his full-knowledge, as nearly every word of that statement has ultimately proven false.
Four years later, Weld is still disgusted by the President.
“In terms of undermining the rule of law, he has gone well past what Nixon did,” he asserted. “And I spent seven years in the Justice Department trying to keep politics out of law enforcement.”
Don’t let the ‘R’ next to his name fool you today folks, Weld has a long history of trying to kill the campaigns of Republican presidential candidates.
In 2008, he endorsed Barack Obama over John McCain and in 2016 claimed he’s “not sure anybody is more qualified than Hillary Clinton to be president of the United States.”
