Earlier, President Trump mocked Sanford and the two other Republicans planning to run against him for the 2020 nomination, referring to them as “the three stooges ,” and recalling Sanford ’s fling with a “flaming dancer” from Argentina. Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford suspended his 2020

"I am compelled to enter the Presidential Primary as a Republican for several reasons – the most important of which is to further and foster a national debate on our nation's debt, deficits and spending," Sanford tweeted on Sunday.
