Mitt Romney slams President Trump in op-ed piece

Share

Romney's strong denunciation could mark the start of a new rivalry within the party.

Mr Trump had not "risen to the mantle", he wrote in the Washington Post.

But others, including Trump, had plenty to say about it. In a June 2016 interview with Newsmax, he said he was open to backing Trump but was uncertain about where Trump stood.

'Dishonesty is Donald Trump's hallmark, ' Romney added at the time, venting about Trump's 'bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, [and] the absurd third-grade theatrics'. I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. "And clearly, if the President were able to get a $5 billion check to build the wall, that would look like a huge win for Republicans and a big loss for Democrats". He should be happy for all Republicans. Trump's response to the Romney op-ed was to call on Romney to "Be a TEAM player & WIN!"

"Jealously is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it", Parscale wrote, adding he wished "everyone had the courage" Trump had. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., another retiring senator, left off. Jeff Flake, a Republican who has criticized the President often in the last few years.

He really cares about what you think and what more can you ask if you're a member of the United States Senate than have a chance to talk with the president and share your views.

In mid-November 2016, Romney visited the president-elect at the Trump National Golf Course in Bedminster, New Jersey, while Trump was evaluating how to fill his Cabinet. Romney appears to have more room with GOP voters in Utah to take on the president.

"He was right to align USA corporate taxes with those of global competitors, to strip out excessive regulations, to crack down on China's unfair trade practices, to reform criminal justice and to appoint conservative judges". But issues of foreign policy are more complex, and the president has achieved a great deal for conservatives - something Romney readily admitted in his article.

In his speech announcing his retirement, Flake denounced the "complicity" of his own party in what he called an "alarming and unsafe state of affairs" under Trump and blamed the President for setting the tone.

In a Washington Post essay published late on Tuesday, Romney suggested that the USA leader "caused dismay around the world" and said that Trump's presidency had "made a deep descent in December". "And it is in this province where the incumbent's shortfall has been most glaring", Romney wrote. "People are very upset with what he did", Trump said.

Back in 2012, Romney graciously accepted Trump's endorsement for his presidential campaign, praising the then-magnate and TV celebrity for his "extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works and to create jobs".

"Accordingly", he said, "I am asking for your support to take the unprecedented step of amending the rules to close loopholes in the re-nomination campaign, including Rule 40", he said.
