Romney's Really Changed His Tune On Trump

Reuters

Romney tweeted back, "Thank you Mr. President for your support". However, Romney did not mention Trump or his scandal-plagued administration in his campaign announcement on Friday, focusing instead on how his adopted state of Utah could be a model for better government in Washington. "I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah", CNN reported.

Last year, Romney won plaudits from many Republicans - and Democrats - when he slammed Trump for his remarks after the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville last summer, which left one woman dead after clashes between neo-Nazis and counter-protesters.

Despite all of this, Romney welcomed Trump's endorsement with open arms, responding to the tweet in less than an hour.

Still, Romney's decision to run for Senate is happy news for Beeson and other Republicans who are uncomfortable with Trump and worry about the direction he is taking the Republican Party. "He just happened to come and move to Utah so he could, in our opinion, run for Senate at some point, as he sort of came into MA to run for governor".

In a 2016 speech, Romney hammered Trump for a litany of abuses, calling him a "phony" and a "fraud". Those close to Romney say as senator he is less interested in direct combat with President Donald Trump than he once was and more interested in promoting Utah - though the man grew up in MI and has deepest political ties to MA. That's something most Trump supporters will never forget. He had called for a "total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States, derided Mexicans as criminals and rapists, and mocked a reporter with a disability at a campaign stop.

Turkey-led forces scoop up 2 more towns in Syria's Afrin
Litany of problems The squabble over Syria is, however, just one of a litany of issues burdening Turkey-US relations. Tillerson said a priority will be given to the issue of Manbij as the two sides work together.

Others said they expect Romney to embrace numerous traditional GOP policies that Trump has pushed in office, including the GOP tax bill and the rollback of federal regulations. Moreover, Trump isn't particularly popular there: He received less than 50 percent of Utah's vote in 2016. They were photographed dining together as Trump mulled making Romney his secretary of state.

"He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president", Romney said. Mike Lee's (R-UT) chief of staff, told Golshan.

He adds that Romney has a miserable record on social issues.

But maybe not a lovefest, either.
