(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER REP.

JOE WALSH, (R) ILLINOIS, SAYING: "We cannot afford four more years of Donald Trump.

No way." Conservative former Congressman Joe Walsh joined the 2020 election RACE on Sunday, becoming the second Republican to challenge President Donald Trump.

In his campaign video, the Illinois Republican criticized Trump as a bully unfit for office.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) FORMER REP.

JOE WALSH, (R) ILLINOIS, SAYING: "We have someone in the White House who we all know is unfit.

Someone who lies virtually every time he opens his mouth." When asked to comment on Walsh's criticism, a Trump spokesman brushed it off, saying, quote, "Whatever." Walsh was elected to Congress in 2010 as part of the Tea Party movement but he lost his re-election bid in 2012 to Democrat Tammy Duckworth.

The other Republican challenging Trump'S 2020 BID is former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld.

His campaign has so far failed to gain traction.

Both Walsh and Weld have a long way to go.

A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll showed 87 percent of Republicans approve of Trump's performance in office.
