(TheRedAlertNews.com) – HAPPENING NOW: Former Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said on Sunday that he plans to run for president as a Republican candidate. He believes America needs a different leader than former President Donald Trump.
Hutchinson, who is 72 years old, was the governor of Arkansas for eight years. He thinks Trump should not be the next leader of the country. He said he wants to be a leader who appeals to the best of America, not just our worst instincts.
Hutchinson thinks Trump should leave the race because of the criminal charges against him. Trump has been charged with a crime related to a $130,000 payment made to an adult film star before the 2016 election. Despite these charges, Trump is still popular among Republican voters.
Hutchinson knows it will be hard to raise his profile and win in a crowded Republican primary. He believes his experience and conservative values will resonate with voters. He has recently traveled to early-voting states like Iowa.
Other Republicans running for president include former UN ambassador Nikki Haley and tech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former Vice President Mike Pence, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie are also expected to join the race soon.
Hutchinson didn’t criticize the charges against Trump as being politically motivated. He said that a grand jury found probable cause for the charges, which is the standard in criminal cases. He believes in letting the criminal justice system work.
He wants to be seen as a “non-Trump” candidate rather than “anti-Trump.” He wants to speak to all members of the Republican party and represent values like border security, a strong America, and less federal spending.
