Former Illinois Congressman Joe Walsh announced Sunday morning that he is running for president as a Republican, challenging President Trump in the GOP primary race, while delivering a blistering attack on the president’s character and qualifications.
Walsh blasted the president for his social media habits and general behavior.

Walsh claimed that Trump was “tweeting us into a recession” and warned that “he’ll tweet us into war.” – READ MORE
