Joe Walsh becomes second Republican to challenge Trump for White House Joe Walsh, a conservative former U.S. congressman turned talk show host, on Sunday became the second Republican to challenge President Donald Trump for the party's 2020 White House nomination. © Peter Hoffman for The New York Times Joe Walsh, a Tea Party conservative who served one term in the House, went from staunch Trump supporter to acerbic critic. Walsh, 57, announced his long-shot bid to unseat Trump, who has strong support among Republicans, after sharply criticizing the Republican president as a liar and a bully who is unfit for office. "I'm running because he's unfit," Walsh told ABC's "This Week" program.

WASHINGTON — President Trump on Thursday authorized the creation of the United States Space Command, citing the need for a centralized unit to protect American interests in what he called “the next war-fighting domain.”.

President Donald Trump said trade talks with Beijing are still planned for September after a new round of tariffs went into effect on Sunday. Wall Street had a volatile August after Trump announced his plan to slap tariffs on Chinese imports.

Former South Carolina governor and congressman Mark Sanford is delaying his announcement on whether he'll run against President Trump in 2020 as a Republican, The Post and Courier reports.

In an interview published Monday, Sanford told the paper that he and the nation are currently focused on Hurricane Dorian and that he'll wait until after the dust settles from the storm to announce his decision.

"As Governor he dealt with many storm preparations, and given the gravity of this storm, he encourages residents along the East Coast to pay heed to the warnings and declarations of state and county emergency operation teams," Sanford's team said in a news release, according to the newspaper.

Joe Walsh says he is challenging Trump 'to make the moral case against him'

Joe Walsh says he is challenging Trump 'to make the moral case against him' Former Illinois US Rep. Joe Walsh, who recently announced he will challenge President Donald Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said Monday he's running against the President "to make the moral case against him." "Look, I have been waiting every single day this year for somebody to step up, a Republican to step up, to make the moral case against him. That he is unfit," Walsh told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on "New Day." "Come on -- somebody should challenge him.

Trump 's denial also included what looked to be an aerial photograph of the launch site, complete with graphics and annotations describing the scene. Trump 's comments on Twitter came on the heels of what appeared to be a failed rocket launch at a space center in northern Iran a day earlier.

WASHINGTON — President Trump wants Americans to understand that the economy is doing great, thanks to him . But if in fact the economy sours, then it is someone else’s fault. Mr. Trump ’s Blame List is long.

The hurricane, which reached Category 5 status on Sunday but has since been downgraded to a Category 4 storm, is headed toward the southern U.S., with South Carolina among several in a state of emergency and likely to face heavy winds.

Sanford previously said he would give himself until Labor Day to make a choice. Since announcing his potential White House bid the former lawmaker has visited New Hampshire and Iowa, causing further speculation.

Sanford's possible presidential run comes just over a year after he lost a House primary in a contentious reelection bid that was seen as a referendum on his criticism of Trump, who had urged voters to reject Sanford in the days leading up to the June 2018 primary.

If he jumps into the race, Sanford faces near-impossible odds in the effort to defeat Trump and become the Republican nominee for president.

If he decides to challenge Trump, he would join two other Republicans vying for the GOP presidential nomination: former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld and former Illinois congressman Joe Walsh.
