Incoming Sen. Romney criticizes President Trump's character in op-ed

03 January 2019

In a 2016 speech, Romney called Trump "a phony, a fraud" and said that "his promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University". Question will be, is he a Flake?

"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 continued of Romney.

Romney appeared on CNN later Wednesday and laid out the role he will play as a sometimes-Trump critic, if necessary.

Brad Parscale, Trump's 2020 campaign manager, wrote that Romney lacked the ability to save the nation, and that Trump has saved it.

Romney argued in the Washington Post on Tuesday that Trump hasn't risen to the mantle of the presidency. "I hope not", he wrote.

Mitt Romney's anti-Donald Trump op-ed is a "calculated political treachery" created to block the president's re-nomination in 2020, contends a member of the Republican National Committee.

In February a year ago, Trump endorsed Romney's run for a Senate seat in Utah.

The Trump-Romney relationship dates back to 2012, when Trump endorsed the then Republican presidential contender at a press conference in Las Vegas. Trump even considered Romney for secretary of state, but chose Rex Tillerson instead.

"I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not", Romney wrote.

But for some critics of this president, as well as those concerned about the ongoing Robert S. Mueller-led independent investigation into the president's campaign, the Romney op-ed was an opening salvo in what could be prove to a ruinous year for this president.

Williams, in his letter, asked fellow RNC committee members to confirm in a statement at their winter meeting this month that Trump will be the party's presidential nominee in 2020.

"I think it's very important for a president to demonstrate the qualities of integrity and honesty, forthrightness, empathy and respect for the institutions of our democratic republic", he said.

"I hope for the best, but he's given everyone reason not to trust his ideology", McCain said. Flake pointed to Romney's op-ed on Tuesday as "thoughtful".

Representatives for Romney could not be immediately reached for comment to Trump's tweet.

When the US Congress reconvenes on Thursday, Mr Trump faces a new challenge on the domestic front - in November's mid-terms the Republicans strengthened their hold of the Senate but lost the House of Representatives.

Political watchers had a mixed response to Romney's op-ed, with many remarking that his criticisms of the president were notable but that their impact is unclear.

Romney also denounced Trump's effect on foreign policy, pointing to a 2016 survey which found that while 84 percent of people in Germany, Britain, France, Canada and Sweden had felt that America "do the right thing in world affairs" - and how, one year later, that number had dropped to 16 percent.
