Former Illinois Congressman, Joe Walsh, officially threw his hat in the ring on Sunday to announce that he is running for President.

Walsh, is a never-Trumper, who is running on the GOP primary to defeat President Trump, claiming to be a Republican, but is welcomed on propaganda cable networks, such as CNN, with open arms to bash the President.

On Sunday, Joe Walsh took to Twitter with his official announcement that he’s running for President along with posting his first campaign video.

“When I first started thinking about running for President, talking with my family, close friends, people I trust, I started hearing about all the things that I needed to do to ‘test the waters,'” Walsh began. “Starting an exploratory committee, hire a speechwriter, get an image consultant–all the practical steps the conventional steps candidates take.”

“But these are not conventional times. These are urgent times,” Walsh continued, seemingly trying to scare people away from President Trump. “Let’s be real, these are scary times. So the hell with all those conventional things. Today I’m declaring my candidacy for President of the United States because it’s time to be brave.”

“We have someone in the White House who we all know is unfit. Someone who lies virtually every time he opens his mouth,” he claimed. “And someone who places his own interests above the nation’s interests at every single turn. We cannot afford four more years of Donald Trump, no way. What cannot wait is all of us having the courage to finally say publicly what we all know privately.” (Continued Below)

“We’re tired of a President waking up every morning and tweeting ugly insults at ordinary Americans. We’re tired of a President who sides with Putin against our own intelligence community. We’re tired of a President who thinks he’s above the law. We’re tired of a President who’s tweeting this country into a recession. And we’re tired, so damn tired of a President who is teaching millions of American children every day that it’s okay to lie and it’s okay to be a bully. Enough,” he also claimed.

“My name is Joe Walsh. I’m a former Republican Congressman. I’m a conservative. I’m running because Donald Trump is not who we are. In fact, he’s the worst of who we are. Sure, Trump and his people are going to attack us, that’s going to happen. It won’t be easy. But you know bravery is never easy. So let’s make a statement. Go to [my website] and tell the world that you’re ready to be brave,” he said.

“I’m running for President of the United States. It’s time we all say publicly what we feel privately: We have an unfit conman in the White House. We can’t take four more years of Donald Trump. No way. Join our fight at It’s time to #BeBrave,” he tweeted. (Continued Below)
