Weld: I'm Running for President as a Republican

Weld: I'm Running for President as a Republican

Two months after former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld launched an exploratory committee to pursue the possibility of challenging President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, he is now an officially declared candidate.

Mr Weld, 73, has released a campaign video contrasting his style with the current president's.

Despite a pledge to libertarians that he would remain loyal to the party going forward, Weld on January 17 walked into the clerk's office of the MA town where he lives and re-registered with the GOP, adding to speculation that he would challenge Trump in the primaries.

Weld left the public arena but later moved to NY, where he would make a brief, unsuccessful bid to become the first person since Sam Houston to serve as governor of two different states.

In 2016, Weld joined Johnson to represent the Libertarian Party.

But he faces an uphill battle to take over a Republican party that has been refashioned in Mr Trump's image.

Clips of Trump's controversial statements about women are cut into the video by means of contrast.

Y (estoy) muy orgulloso de lo que represento, de la comunidad latina que ha llegado lejos hablando el idioma que hablan en mi país.

The campaign promo ends with the slogan: "A better America Starts Here".

"I would be ashamed of myself if I didn't raise my hand and run", he told Tapper.

Party leaders have quickly rejected Weld's campaign which make things look hard for him in the long run.

Any effort to challenge the president's nomination is bound to go absolutely nowhere...' While Trump's overall approval ratings have been poor for much of his presidency, he remains popular with Republican voters.

Mr Trump's campaign said on Sunday it had raised more than $30m in the first quarter of this year, far outpacing the political war chests of individual Democratic candidates.

The video also criticized Trump's misogynistic comments about women, his mockery of a reporter with disabilities, and his failed campaign promise to have Mexico pay for a wall on the southern United States border.
