Failed GOP Presidential candidate in 2012 Mitt Romney wrote an op-ed bashing President Trump in the Washington Post. This led Trump to tell Romney to knock it off!
Romney stated in the Post, “On balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.”
Romney continued. “With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring.”
President Trump fired back at Romney on Twitter Wednesday morning for his lack on team play.
Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!

Mitt Romney will be sworn into office as Senator of Utah on Thursday, but he needs a lot of maturing before he is sworn in. Mitt Romney is what is wrong with the elites within the Republican Party that can’t accept we voters wanted someone for the blue collar workers.
If the Republican Party is to fail in 2020 it will not be because of Trump or the strong backboned conservatives. The fault will lay with the weak backboned Conservatives who want to meet the leftists half way on their Socialist policies in an attempt to not be targeted by the media. If Mitt Romney was willing to stand strong against Obama the way he does against Trump he would have been President in 2012.
