On February 15, 2019, former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld announced the formation of an exploratory committee to think about running for the Republican nomination in the 2020 United States presidential election.[2][3] On April 15, 2019 Weld officially announced he would be running for President, challenging incumbent Donald Trump.[4]

He appeared on both Bloomberg News and MSNBC's Morning Joe the next day on February 19, 2019. On Morning Joe, he bashed Donald Trump as President, with a focus especially on what he labeled bad foreign policy in regards largely to North Korea and Russia.[5]
