President Trump looks up from more than 80 percentage points over three of his GOP presidential primary challengers in a new Fox News poll, but the way Mark Sanford it, someone in the trump color choice team is “fear.”

Sanford, the former GOP South Carolina Governor and Congressman, the starting shot for its extreme long-shot bid for the Republican presidential nomination earlier this month, joining former Massachusetts Gov. Bill weld and ex-Rep. Joe Walsh from Illinois.


As Sanford Federal government was always in the race, in his home. The Republicans in South Carolina, which holds the first southern primary in the White house race, cancelled, their presidential nomination contest. They joined Nevada – the voices, the third in the calendar, just in front of the Palmetto-the state of Kansas.

“I think that someone in his (Trumps) of the organization is the fear, which is why you have to squash this nomination contests,” Sanford said in an interview with Fox News. “Otherwise, it makes no sense, because to lock if you have a chance, a 90-percent profit in the world of politics, you do that.”

But Trump’s campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Fox News, earlier this month, the re-election campaign had nothing to do with the cancellation of the competitions. “The decisions, the cases fully, through state parties, and there are volumes of historical precedent to support them,” he said.

And he also stressed that “President Trump to dominate and to rule, in which the contest is placed in front of him.”

The President also dismissed and ridiculed his three main challengers, labeling them the “Three Stooges.”


In an honest moment in July when he said he was about a White house bid – Sanford told Fox News, “I always have to be so real, and I don’t think anyone can beat Donald Trump. This is my personal opinion.”

Two months later, Sanford is less fatalistic sounds table.

Asked the same question, whether the President-in-office, the beat is extremely popular with most Republicans, could possibly, said in the GOP primaries-Sanford, “We are at the beginning of the process. We will find out for you. I mean, that is what the competitions are about… you never know, in the world of politics.”

And he showed on his first choice for the Congress and for the Governor, noting that he was an extreme outsider at the start of these campaigns.

Sanford, a devout fiscal conservative, was a member of the conservative house freedom Caucus in his second stint in Congress. Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona, the incoming freedom Caucus Chairman, told The hill, “I don’t really have a problem with what the guys (Sanford, welding, and Walsh), but the reality is, it is irrelevant.”

Sanford objected. “Debate on issues at the core of what it means to be a Republican are never irrelevant. The Republican party has lost its way on spending. We are looking now to a trillion-dollar deficit this year, which is something we never before, during the favorable economic conditions,” he said.

The candidate was interviewed by Fox News during his first trip since the launch of its 2020 White house bid in New Hampshire, the state that holds the first primary in the nomination calendar. Sanford was a greeting to the voters in Manchester Airport Diner a must-stop for presidential contenders and handing out brochures explaining the three goals of his campaign.

Sanford said that the first goal of a debate within the Republican party on it, “what it means to be a Republican, and, in particular, to the degree that we will be stacking us debt and deficit in Washington, DC.”

His second goal, he said, is “at the end with a number of delegates, so that they can help in fact, the Republican platform, what can I say debt and deficit.”

And Sanford said his third goal “would be to win.”

Sanford hopes that his message resonated among Republicans and independents in a state with a rich fiscal conservative traditions, as well as a strong libertarian streak.

“I think this is the kind of thing you would get people in New Hampshire disturbed,” he said. “I think it’s a fertile ground from which I come.”

While Sanford is a challenge, the President and a trump card to the critics was borrowed from the 2016 election, don’t plan to see, Sanford is a vote for a Democrat in next year’s Federal election.

Asked if he votes for the Democratic presidential candidate in the year 2020 would, if trump is the GOP presidential candidate, Sanford said he did not think so.

“I vote conservative and I will vote for the conservative choice,” he explained.

And, he said, although he blames Trump for “doing serious damage to the confidence of the people in the Republican party as the party of the financial situation,” he said, the President would be better than the democratic alternative.
