Trump Fires Back at Mitt Romney, Calls Him a Pompous “Ass”

Well, that didn’t take long. President Trump has fired back at U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R) for defending presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden. This was done in tandem with another trashing of President Trump by Mitt Romney. It’s amazing that Utah even elected Romney as a Republican considering President Trump’s high approval rating within the GOP, which has gotten as high as 91% according to Gallup.

The last time Romney hit President Trump by declining to endorse him for the 2020 GOP presidential presidency, it took Trump a little while to respond. This time it was much more swift, and even more serious than the last time, when President Trump released a video on Twitter mocking Senator Romney. Trump tweeted:

“Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous “ass” who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!”

Shortly before that tweet, President Trump had fired another one off at Mitt as well. He repeated the fact that he thinks Mitt Romney ‘choked’ when running for president against Barack Obama, something that likely bothers Romney a lot.

“Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won. Sadly, he choked!”

President Trump makes an interesting point where he said “He is so bad for the R’s” as in Republicans. This type of damaging rhetoric does nothing to further the Republican agenda or ‘America First’ agenda. It only serves to further Mitt Romney’s grudges against the President. It’s hard to say what Mitt’s endgame is, or if he’s more concerned with getting back at Trump for past insults than he is with helping his constituents. Unfortunately, this is all too common in today’s Republican party and broader political scene.
