Mitt Romney said something jaw-dropping about Trump, allying with Ilhan Omar in an all-out war
Longtime Trump foe Mitt Romney seems to only like President Trump when he’s running for office.
But now that he’s in the Senate, he has no need for him, and is willing to betray him.
And Romney said this jaw-dropping thing about Trump, allying with Ilhan Omar in an all-out war.
President Donald Trump made waves in recent days for declaring that politicians like Ilhan Omar, who aren’t originally from the United States, can choose to go back to their home countries if they hate the U.S.
In response, the mainstream media launched into full-on attack mode, claiming his comments are racist — with Democrat Rep. Al Green calling for his impeachment over it.
And, as it turns out, they have at least one Republican in the Senate on their side.
Utah Sen. Mitt Romney went after Trump for his comment, calling it “destructive,” and proof that Trump has “failed badly” at uniting the country.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Monday that President Donald Trump’s challenge to far-left Congresswomen to leave the United States was “destructive” and argued the president has “failed badly” at uniting the country.
“The president’s comments were destructive, demeaning, and disunifying. The President of the United States has a unique and noble calling to unite the American people – of all different races, colors, and national origins. In that respect, the president failed badly,” Romney wrote on Twitter Monday evening.
“People can disagree over politics and policy, but telling American citizens to go back to where they came from is over the line,” he added.
Romney’s remarks came after President Trump reiterated his criticism of the “squad” — made up of Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) — at the White House earlier Monday.
“If you’re not happy here, then you can leave,” the president said. “As far as I’m concerned, if you hate our country, if you’re not happy here, you can leave.”
Romney is certainly jealous of President Trump.
While Romney embarrassed himself by losing to former President Obama in 2012, President Trump was able to mop the floor with Hillary Clinton in 2016.
This isn’t the first time Romney has gone after Trump.
During the 2016 election, Romney claimed that Trump is racist, and went after him very harshly.
And then, when Romney chose to run for Senate, he begged the President for his support.
