On Thursday, anti-Trumper and 2020 Presidential Contender, who claims to be running to unseat President Trump, has held his first campaign event in Phillidelphia P! Interestingly, although he claims to be able to win against President Trump, his launch fell short of the President’s tens of thousands that show up to his rallies and events, with Sanford having a total attendance of 1 person!
The Philly Inquirer reported that…
The bell in the Independence Hall tower rang at 9 a.m., and Mark Sanford took a deep breath. He grabbed a giant check for “one trillion dollars,” stood next to a tiny wooden lectern, and asked me if I was ready for him to kick off a news conference announcing his bid to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 Republican primary.
It didn’t really feel like a news conference. I was the only reporter there.
And when it began, the only others around besides his two aides were a family 30 yards away with a selfie stick and a group of students from Paris who wanted to know why he had such a big check. (Answer: It represented the burden of the national debt.)
The former South Carolina congressman and governor — perhaps best known for disappearing from office for six days in 2009 to visit a paramour in Argentina — launched his long-long-long-shot presidential campaign Wednesday in a gloomy Philadelphia. The launch also served to kick off his “Kids, We’re Bankrupt and We Didn’t Even Know It” tour — a 3,500-mile, weeklong road trip he hopes will “spark a needed conversation” within the Republican Party about spending and debt. He was set to make stops later Wednesday in Harrisburg and Pittsburgh.
Regardless, Sanford recorded a video that shows his launch…
Ultimately, it is a stark reminder of just how popular President Trump truly is, and how disgusted the American people are with globalist establishment politicians, like RINO Elitist Mark Sanford (R-PA).
