Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said Donald Trump is taking the country in “the wrong direction” and does not deserve to be re-elected in a Meet the Press interview Sunday. He is considering a Republican primary bid against Trump.
Sanford also served as a representative for his state but lost his primary in 2018 after Trump endorsed his opponent, State Rep. Katie Arrington, who eventually lost the general election.
“This conversation began the day after my primary loss last June,” Sanford said. “A friend called and said ‘God just cleared your calendar for a reason, I know what it is. You need to primary the president.’ I’m like, ‘Are you completely out of your mind?’”
“There’s been a drumbeat over the last year of people who I admire, who are not crazy, who are very thoughtful saying we need to have this conversation,” he said, referring to the possibility of a primary challenger running against Trump.
I’ve long admired @GovBillWeld and his courage to step out first in this debate. https://t.co/3uHvuDvuST
