Newsweek: Trump GOP Challenger Says Republican Voters Tell Him 'They're Tired' of President and 'Sick of His Lies'
Republican presidential candidate Joe Walsh said that voters in Iowa, New Hampshire and other states have expressed frustration with President Donald Trump and are "sick of his lies."
On Joe Walsh:
Joe Walsh, a former Illinois congressman ad tea party favorite turned radio talk show host, announced a longshot challenge Aug. 25 to President Donald Trump for the Republican nomination in 2020, saying the incumbent is “completely unfit” for office and must be denied a second term.
“Somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative” among Republicans, Walsh told ABC’s “This Week,” adding that “the country is sick of this guy’s tantrum. He’s a child. ... He lies every time he opens his mouth.”
