Globalist trash Mitt Romney took a shot at President Trump in a Washington Post op-ed just two days before he is set to be sworn in to the Senate.
President Trump and Mitt Romney have a very complicated relationship — they are more like ‘frenemies.’
Over the years, Mitt Romney has criticized Trump’s stance on immigration and he really stepped up his attacks after Trump passed him over for Secretary of State.
Now Romney is taking a shot at Trump just days before he’s sworn in to replace outgoing Utah Senator Orrin Hatch.
“The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December,” Romney began his op-ed before going into a diatribe about Trump ‘abandoning his allies’ because he pulled out of Syria.
Romney said “the departures of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, the appointment of senior persons of lesser experience, the abandonment of allies who fight beside us, and the president’s thoughtless claim that America has long been a “sucker” in world affairs all defined his presidency down.”
Romney praised the Trump-hating globalists who used to work for President Trump. Every person he listed has since been fired or resigned — he even praised Jeff Sessions who did more to destroy Trump’s presidency than any other person.
It is well known that Donald Trump was not my choice for the Republican presidential nomination. After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the occasion. His early appointments of Rex Tillerson, Jeff Sessions, Nikki Haley, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster, Kelly and Mattis were encouraging. But, on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.
In the penultimate paragraph of his op-ed, Romney echoed outgoing RINO Jeff Flake and vowed to speak out against ‘racist, sexist, anti-immigrant’ statements or actions.’ Remember, Mitt Romney has binders full of women! He’s not sexist!
Furthermore, I will act as I would with any president, in or out of my party: I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not. I do not intend to comment on every tweet or fault. But I will speak out against significant statements or actions that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions.
Mitt Romney will replace globalist, Trump-hating RINOs like Jeff Flake and the late John McCain.
President Trump tried to extend an olive branch to Mitt Romney and endorsed him in the Utah Senate race in February, but just like every other globalist, establishment elitist, there is nothing Trump can do to win his favor.
