“I’m strongly, strongly considering it. That’s — again, I’m not trying to be cute or coy. I’ve told you before — if somebody’s going to get in there and go after him … it’s got to be done soon,” Walsh told CNN’s John Berman on “New Day.” “You’re running out of time. But more importantly, these are not conventional times. Look at the guy in the White House. These are urgent times.”
Asked by Berman when he’ll decide on whether to run, Walsh said, “Labor Day’s in what — a week. If you want to get in, you’ve got to get in within the next week or so.”
Echoing criticisms he lobbed at Trump last week, Walsh said Thursday that the President is a “horrible human being” and that he’s setting a bad example for children through his rhetoric.
“The only way you primary Donald Trump and beat him is to expose him for the con man he is. And if I did it, John, that’s what I’d do,” he said, adding that the “silence” by other Republicans on Trump’s actions is “what’s so disappointing.”
Walsh also said he thinks he can beat Trump, but added that he believes any “good challenger” could win against the President “if they make the moral case (against him).”
