Washington (CNN) – Republican presidential candidate Bill Weld called on President Donald Trump to resign Wednesday, writing in an op-ed that the country would be “better served with a President Mike Pence.”

“If Donald Trump is an American patriot, he should resign from office,” Weld, the only announced Republican primary challenger to the President, wrote in an op-ed published in The Bulwark, an online platform that publishes conservative commentary.

He added: “Trump’s rampant dishonesty and paranoia render him incapable of serving as president. For once, he should put the good of the United States ahead of his own ego and resign.”

Weld, the former Republican governor of Massachusetts, officially announced his primary challenge to Trump earlier this month, making him the President’s only Republican opponent so far in the 2020 election. In 2016, Weld was the vice presidential nominee on the Libertarian Party ticket with former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson. He previously served two terms as the governor of Massachusetts in the early 1990s.
