Romney continues his Trump hate fest, refuses to endorse president for 2020

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) Two-time failed presidential candidate and GOP Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah told CNN he would withhold his endorsement for a presidential candidate next year, including President Donald Trump, who is representing his party.

Romney, who said he wasn’t going to endorse anyone, drew criticism from pro-Trump media and other supporters, Lifezette reported.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs — among others — tore into Romney for that stance during a television segment on Fox on Friday, saying, “What is wrong with this man?”

“Can you hear the tears falling on the marble floors under those terrible, terrible anti-Trumpers?” said Dobbs.

He also suggested that much more attention should be paid by people to the “booming Trump economy,” as well as the promises that the president has kept.

On Thursday, CNN reported that Romney, who won his seat in 2018, said he would withhold his endorsement in the 2020 race, “both in the primary and in the general election, underscoring the uneasy relationship between the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee and the leader of his party.”

“I’m not planning on endorsing in the presidential race,” Romney told CNNin an interview at the Capitol.

“At this stage, I’m not planning on endorsing in the primary or in the general.”

And while Romney’s endorsement isn’t vital to the president’s reelection effort, the fact that the Utah Republican continues to demonstrate animosity toward a president who has had the most trouble getting support from many in his own party since winning in 2016 — which isn’t normal.

“Romney’s statement adds more certainty about his plans in the presidential race after previously signaling he was unlikely to endorse a candidate in the 2020 elections. The decision by a party’s previous nominee to avoid backing a sitting president is yet another norm-breaking episode in Trump’s tumultuous time atop the Republican Party,” CNN reported.

The network also noted that Romney is friends with Bill Weld, who is mounting a long-shot challenge for the GOP nomination against the president.

In April, Romney said in an interview that Weld, a former governor of Massachusetts like Romney himself, had been a “superb governor.” However, he did not say whether he would get behind the long-shot candidate or not.

When Mittens moved into his senate office there was no furniture, no phone, and the government was shut down. Right then he needed to change his magic underwear.

He’s a paid flipper and should be struck from his elected position for failure to competently run the office he was elected to represent. He is at least an atheist fool probably tied in with the CAIR reform Muslim payment system to defile our government .Hrs all about the money and is worthless in my eyes as the Messenger of Christianity and Sainted healer appointed by my Trinity (God). Now he will answer the the hands of the creator as it is to late for him to make amends anyways. This Holy War that was started in the east as… Read more »

The Romneys wrap themselves in the American FLAG but never wrap themselves in an American UNIFORM. “patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” (1) Great Grandpa Romney ran to Mexico to dodge American polygamy laws (2) Grandpa Romney FLIP-FLOPPED back to America when Mexico got dangerous. (3) Daddy Romney NEVER SERVED through WWII and Korea. (4) MITTENS Romney used “missionary” deferments to DODGE the Viet Nam draft. (5) FIVE sons, and NOT ONE ever wore an AMERICAN UNIFORM. FIVE GENERATIONS, NINE “males”, and NOT ONE actually loved America enough to serve this Nation. The only thing “conservative” about the… Read more »

I have lived in Mormon country before, and they are not very sophisticated. I won’t use the four letter word to describe them (d—) because I want to be nice to the 5% that aren’t.

But voting in Romney who has a huge ego problem, over the good of the country? Do they understand that Mormons are on the hit list if the Socialists take over?
