Listen: Trump campaign says it's not worried about GOP primary challenger
"I we could not finish your discussion of twenty twenty without the biggest news. The race is totally being shaken up. President Trump has a Republican primary challenger. Oh my gosh. Who's it going to be as Ted Cruz? Is it Marco Rubio is no it's Bill weld Bill weld who I guess was governor of some state like thirty years ago or something, and he's kind of democrat here is Bill Weld's big campaign announcement. That's true sits nineteen ninety. State near bankruptcy. Corrupt democratic machine called a Texas. The one party rule. No Republican governor for twenty years. One man had the courage to stand up and fight. A crimefighter appointed US attorney by Ronald Reagan. Bill weld ran for governor on his record top Boston city officials retired. They claim accidents US attorney Bill weld investigates, the claims fraudulent weld prosecute gets brought conviction jail million saved in taxes. Now Bill will run for governor is platform one. It's always been guts, integrity independence setting. Couldn't be done. No Republican could win Bill. Well beat the odds historic victory. Bill. Weld ca Texas twenty one times keep balance the budget reformed welfare. Oh, it's so cringe e obviously, I don't think President Trump is shaking in his Oval Office at the fear of Bill weld running in the GOP primary. This campaign announcement is terrible for a great many reasons in its form and its function. It just reminds people that Bill weld is a has been it just reminds people that this guy hasn't done anything in like thirty years that he's from an older era that is he's not connected to modern and relevant politics. Not just in the way that they're talking about his career. He was appointed. By Ronald Reagan. How old is he he was governor in like nineteen ninety or something K not just that. Even in the form of the commercial. It just feels like a commercial from two thousand and two feels like a commercial before the internet really existed. It just feels so dated because he's dated candidate. But. I bring it up not just to make fun of Bill weld, but to point out that even his platform, even his ideological moorings are dated their dated, and we're not gonna win this way anymore. What is this entire campaign announcement could be boiled down to three words, I cut taxes. I am Bill weld. I cut taxes. Yeah. My entire political career, basically, I cut taxes. Isn't that? Great. I cut tax. Yes. You're like low taxes as much as the next guy. I certainly enjoy low taxes. Don't get me wrong. Politics is a lot more than cutting taxes conservative thought is a lot more than cutting taxes."
