Justin Amash Floats Presidential Run Against Trump: ‘I’m Looking at it Closely’
Rep. Justin Amash (I-MI), a small government conservative who recently ditched the Republican party, suggested in a subtle tweet that he is looking “closely” at challenging President Donald Trump for the White House.
“Americans who believe in limited government deserve another option,” Amash said in response to Trump’s remark.

In response to a Twitter user asking that Amash put himself forward as that option, the congressman stated, “Thanks. I’m looking at it closely this week.”
Thanks. I’m looking at it closely this week.

Also on Tuesday, Amash put forward a one sentence resolution with Reps. Dean Phillips (D-MN) and Tom Malinowski (D-NJ) declaring “when someone is the president of the United States, their authority is not total.”
