Mitt Romney just admitted his vendetta against Donald Trump has nothing to do with policy

At one point, not too long ago, Mitt Romney was the face and figurehead of the GOP.

However, after failing in his bid for the White House, Romney’s new mission seems to be to stop the Trump train from transporting the Republican Party in a winning direction.

And now, Mitt Romney just admitted his vendetta against Donald Trump has nothing to do with policy. 

Mitt Romney betrays his conservative constituents 

After twice failing to win his way into the White House – and after former President Donald Trump decided to go in a different direction for Secretary of State – Mitt Romney used his status in the Mormon Church to secure the junior Senate seat in Utah.

However, in his time in the Senate, Romney has made more enemies than friends among his constituents.

He was a constant thorn in Trump’s side – working hard to derail his America First agenda.

The failed 2012 Presidential candidate even voted twice to convict Trump following Democrat impeachments in the House.

Furthermore, Romney refused to endorse his Utah colleague Sen. Mike Lee’s (R-UT) re-election last year – Lee won in a landslide without his support.

Romney has also become the leading voice for the country club, Chamber of Commerce wing of the GOP.

In fact, Romney voted with Democrats for gun control and to advance President Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion obese omnibus bill, stuffed to the brim with pork-barrel spending and goodies and handouts for the woke.

Now, on his way out of the Senate after deciding not to run for re-election, the former GOP standard bearer is trying one more time to stop Trump – and this time, he’s admitting it’s entirely personal. 

Romney will vote for Biden over Trump 

Biden has made a mess of the economy, the southern border, the peaceful international relations under Trump, and the social makeup of society. 

But despite all that, Romney said he would not vote for Trump in the 2024 Election – thus, helping Biden secure re-election. 

Why?

Well, not because of any domestic policy differences. 

In an interview on CNN’s The Source with Kaitlan Collins, Romney said it’s a matter of personality. 

“Yeah, [I] aligned with many of his [President Trump’s] domestic policies,” Romney said. “…Having a President who is so defaulted of character would have an enormous impact on the character of America. And for me, that’s the primary consideration.”

Apparently, Romney prefers a President with a character that includes abusing his power and using his political clout to obtain sweetheart deals for his drug-addicted child. 

Romney did say he disagrees with Trump’s foreign policy which resulted in four years of peace, no new wars, and historic peace agreements brokered all over the world. 

The two-time failed Presidential candidate prefers Biden’s foreign policy, which includes the disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal, wars in eastern Europe and the Gaza Strip, and allowing China to accumulate more wealth and power. 

But, at least he doesn’t send out mean tweets.
