Conservative firebrand Joe Walsh on Monday said he lost his nationally syndicated radio show after announcing his intentions of challenging President Donald Trump in the Republican primary.

"Eighty to ninety percent of my audience supports the president," Walsh told fill-in host Joe Berman during an appearance on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360."

"I just found out I lost my national radio show, so that's gone. But I figured that might happen, John."

Walsh, a former Illinois congressman, said he did not know specifics.

"I don't know why. I just got a notice before I came in the studio," he said. 

"I'm running for president. I oppose this president. Most of my listeners support the president. It's not an easy thing to do to be in conservative talk radio and oppose this president. I knew that, John, when I made the announcement [Sunday], that it could be in jeopardy."

Walsh in announcing his challenge said Trump is unfit for office.

"He's nuts. He's erratic. He's cruel. He stokes bigotry. He's incompetent. He doesn't know what he's doing," Walsh told ABC's "This Week."

The longshot portrayed himself as a legitimate alternative in party where he said many are opposed to Trump but are "scared to death" of saying so publicly.
