He just made a big mistake…
Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh announced that he is running for president as a Republican, challenging President Trump in the GOP primary race.
Walsh blasted the president for his social media habits.
“I’m running because he’s unfit; somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative,” Walsh said. “The country is sick of this guy’s tantrum — he’s a child.”
“I helped create Trump,” the Tea Party favorite told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos in an interview that aired Sunday morning. “I feel responsible for that.”
Walsh claimed that Trump was “tweeting us into a recession” and warned that “he’ll tweet us into war.”
Walsh said Trump “made me reflect on some of the things I’ve said in the past,” acknowledging that at times he “went beyond the policies and idea” and “said some ugly things about President Obama that I regret.”
When asked if he truly believes what he said about Obama, Walsh responded, “God no, and I have apologized for that.”
Walsh made a series of personal attacks against President Trump.
“He’s nuts, he’s erratic, he’s cruel, he stokes bigotry,” Walsh said. He accused Trump of not caring about America, saying, “the only thing he cares about is Trump.”
