During an Sunday interview on CNN's "Face the Nation," Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) said he's not ruling out the possibility of running for president as a libertarian. 

“I never rule out anything. That’s not on my radar right now, but I think that it is important that we have someone in there that is presenting a vision for America that is different from what these two parties are presenting," Amash said. "Right now we have a wild amount of partisan rhetoric on both sides and Congress is totally broken. We can’t debate things in a clear way anymore."

According to Amash, everything is becoming about whether or not a person likes President Donald Trump. 

"I think we need to return to basic American principles, talk about what we have in common as a people, because I believe we have a lot in common as Americans and try to move forward together rather than fighting each other all the time," Amash told Tapper. 

Amash has been a longtime critic of Trump. He recently voted with Democrats in the House of Representatives to oppose Trump's national declaration emergency.
