A Sanford challenge to the Donald? To be sure, someone needs to challenge President Trump, if only to get him to quit making idiotic decisions. Mark is as much of an egomaniac and the current sitting President. He is also quieter, and less combative. That in itself may make him preferable.
Does he have a platform? Well, the current President doesn’t so why is that even a question?
Does he have the support of the downtrodden middle of America? After the disaster that farmers are enduring, he probably has as much support and Donny does.
Then there is the question of Trump exhaustion. When Trump faithful go into the voting booth, will many secretly wish they had another, non-Democratic alternative? Will they be thrilled to put another Republican in the White House, and perhaps sleep a little better? They cannot be sleeping too well right now.
Mark Sanford has to convince the masses that the economy will remain good, that he will work on nothing else. And that is about all he has to do. Donald Trump has done the rest.
Mark Sanford is considering challenging Donald Trump in the Republican primary. He says Trump is taking the country in “the wrong direction.”
