It was about time.
According to Breitbart News, former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) ended his 2020 Republican presidential challenge against President Donald Trump, coming to grips with the fact that the president just “can’t be beat.”
Walsh said, “I’m ending my candidacy for President of the United States. Look, I got into this because I thought it was really important that there was a Republican out there every day calling out this president for how unfit he is. I want to stop Trump, I believe he’s a threat to this country.”
Wash continued, “He can’t be stopped within the Republican Party. Nobody can beat him. It’s Trump’s party. It’s not a party, it’s a cult. He can’t be beat in the Republican primary, so there’s no reason for me or any candidate to be in there. The party has become a cult.”
He later stated, “I didn’t see how cult-like the party was. Ten states around the country canceled there primaries and caucuses, the state parties are beholden to Trump. The conservative media world, Fox News and all of rest, wouldn’t give me the time of day.”
He added, “I’m a Republican candidate for president, but they bow down in front of their king. And then out there everyday talking to Republican voters, I just became convinced that these folks had been fed nothing but lies and mistruths about President Trump and they can’t be gotten back.” You can read the full article here.
