Incoming GOP Senator Mitt Romney wrote a scathing op-ed article in The Washington Post rebuking the current Republican President.
“The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December,” 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.”
Oh boy, will this new Mitt Romney stay around for a while or will he flip flop like the old 2012 Romney?
The Republican Senator also told his readers that Donald Trump was not his choice for the Republican presidential nomination, and after he became the nominee, he had hoped his campaign would stop the resentment and name-calling.
The article went further into rebuking the current President but Mitt Romney also agreed with many things Trump has aligned himself with, like cutting corporate taxes and cracking down on China’s unfair trade practices.
We knew at some point the President wouldn’t take this criticism too well and would lash out on Twitter at some point. Eventually he did.
“Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not,” Trump tweeted. Suggesting to his followers that Romney might just be another Jeff Flake in the Republican party.
Jeff Flake disagrees with almost everything the President says or does but his votes in the senate aligns with the Trump agenda.
