Weld has accused Trump of leaving the nation in "grave peril" and denounced the president's priorities as "skewed toward promotion of himself rather than for the good of the country".

"I'm announcing that I'm running for president of the United States as a Republican against President Trump in 2020", Weld said.

Weld, said on Monday (local time) in the channel CNN that he is going to apply for the candidacy of his party for the presidential election in November of next year.

But Republican leaders have signaled little tolerance for intra-party fights as Trump gears up for a potentially challenging bid for a second term. But what we have now is a president who mocks the rule of law. Over half (54%) said they would definitely be supporting Trump, and 2 in 10 also reported they would probably support Trump but consider Weld as an option.

Trump's campaign has taken extraordinary steps in cementing control over the RNC and the broader nomination process as it seeks to minimize the risk of any potential challenger doing the same to the president.

For example, these documents say Facebook allowed special access to data for friends of Zuckerberg, such as Amazon, an advertiser. Facebook's executive team, including CEO Mark Zuckerberg, used data on Facebook users as leverage over partner companies.

Trump's campaign raised more than $30 million in the first quarter of 2019, it said on Sunday, far outpacing the sums raised by individual Democratic candidates during that period. "The country deserves to have some fiscal constraint and conservatism". He served as Mitt Romney's co-chair in NY when he ran for president in 2008, but after Romney dropped out, he endorsed Barack Obama for president - not John McCain.

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

Weld later stated that he doesn't think he would run as an independent if he doesn't win the Republican nomination.

Johnson and Weld have spent the day campaigning in Salt Lake City, the home town of former republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Trump is now sitting at 89% nationally among republicans.

He resigned as governor the following year after Clinton nominated him to be ambassador to Mexico, but it was a post he would never hold.
