“For the best government is the least amount of government.”
The Trump presidency has been an unmitigated disaster. Despite initial victories such as the placement of conservative legal jurist Neil Gorsuch to the United States Supreme Court, the Trump legislative agenda has stalled in congress and the White House is filled with chaos and disarray. The Russia investigation led by former FBI chief Robert Mueller just won’t go away and has all but derailed Trump’s efforts to, “make America great again.” The Republican’s crushing defeat in the Senate at attempting to repeal Obamacare was simply abysmal and shows that Donald Trump has no influence in congress beyond his base.
Trump’s approval ratings are at a record low for a President who has reached 200 days in the White House. Already the sharks are circling the White House as Republican military hawk Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) and “never Trump” gadfly Ben Sasse (R-NE) are reportedly making trips to Iowa to explore the viability of a primary challenge to Trump in 2020. There are also reports that indicate that moderate Ohio Governor John Kasich is considering another another run for the Republican nomination as well.
While Sasse’s hopes to unseat Trump are quixotic at best, the prospect of another Kasich candidacy and stellar military veteran Tom Cotton making a bid for the 2020 Republican nomination are a real threat to the Donald.
With the Trump Presidency in a total free fall and defeat to a Democratic Presidential candidate in the 2020 General Election a good possibility, the question must now be asked if brilliant Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) should throw his hat in the ring.
A Rand Paul primary challenge would cause a sensation and would bring issues pertaining to Liberty to the forefront of the national political discussion.
Will Rand Paul consider challenging Donald Trump in the 2020 Republican Presidential primaries? Only time will tell, but America needs Senator Paul’s courageous voice for Liberty now more than ever before.
