One of Donald Trump’s Republican challengers, Joe Walsh, said he’s running against the “bigotry and cruelty” of the president, not necessarily his policies.

“We’ve got a king and a dictator in the White House,” Walsh said on MSNBC’s “Up with David Gura” on Sunday. “It’s a referendum on Trump,” a man he said “lies virtually every time he opens his mouth.”
