Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld announced Monday he’ll challenge Donald Trump in the Republican primary, citing the President’s divisiveness and penchant for governing by crisis.
During a telephone interview, Weld said he deliberately wanted to make this announcement on a state holiday in Massachusetts.
“I chose today to do this because this is Patriots Day. I would like to think most folks I talk to are patriots. They love our country and they love their people,” said Weld, 73.
