Bill Kristol wants to create the ‘Committee Not to Renominate the President’

Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol said he is considering creating a committee aimed at defeating President Trump in the 2020 election.

The conservative commentator and Trump critic told the New York Times that he has had informal discussions about launching a “Committee Not to Renominate the President.”

{mosads}“We need to take one shot at liberating the Republican Party from Trump, and conservatism from Trumpism,” Kristol told the publication. 

Kristol’s comments were part of a report by the Times which listed potential Republican Trump challengers in the 2020 presidential election. The list included Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) and Vice President Mike Pence. 

Kristol has proven to be one of the fiercest conservative Trump critics, frequently criticizing the president’s rhetoric as well as his policies. 

The editor went as far as comparing the Trump administration to the decline of the Roman Empire last month.
