U.S. President Donald Trump criticized his rivals for Republican primaries before the 2020 presidential election.
Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford on Sunday was the third Republican candidate to declare his intention to compete with Trump in the presidency. The former Governor of Massachusetts Bill Weld was the first to express such an intention in February this year, and the former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh was the second in August.
The current US presidents only occasionally encounter opposition in their own party when trying to re-run for a second term, although this is not an out of the ordinary event. The last time this happened in 1992 was when Pat Buchanan tried unsuccessfully to achieve the Republican Party nomination, bypassing incumbent President George W. Bush. Bush easily defeated Buchanan in the primaries, but lost the election to Democrat Bill Clinton.
Currently, about 20 more people are continuing the struggle for nominating a single candidate from the US Democratic Party, the leader among whom has been former vice president Joe Biden for several months. If the situation does not change following the results of the preliminary party elections, which will be held in February-June 2020, then Biden will be the rival of the incumbent Republican President Donald Trump.
The US presidential election will be held on November 3, 2020.
