DOVER, N.H. — Bill Weld has decided to focus his unlikely attempt to oust the sitting president on the maverick nature of the New Hampshire GOP primary.

But as he's toured the state, the former Massachusetts governor has left Republicans and independents cold on President Donald Trump scratching their heads.

He has joked about not kissing the back of a child's head because he doesn't want to be accused, like Joe Biden, of making people uncomfortable. He tells voters they wouldn't know how obese Americans truly are until they go to county fairs, where "those overalls are working overtime." And he says he believes Trump's policies are trending in the direction of Adolf Hitler.

But for now, Weld is the most prominent Republican in revolt, mounting a primary challenge to Trump.
