Former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney responded to the latest words that Republican candidate for the presidential nomination Donald J. Trump said after Romney today requested of the voters to unite around other candidates in the Republican Party. “If Trump had said four years ago things he says today about KKK, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled, I would not have accepted his endorsement,” Romney said on Twitter.
Shortly after the speech of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney in Utah on Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for the nomination presidential race Donald J.Trump holds a news conference in Portland, Maine on Romney’s speech. Trump called Romney speech irrelevant. Moreover, Trump said that Romney would have “dropped to his knees” for my endorsement in 2012.”
Former presidential nominee for the Republican Party, Mitt Romney called Donald J.Trump “a phony” and “a fraud” during a speech on Thursday. Romney urged Republicans to rally around one of Mr. Trump’s presidential rivals, the New York Times published.
Romney delivered his speech in Utah and as Times explains, “it represents a last-ditch effort among leaders in the Republican Party to blunt Mr. Trump’s momentum before he runs away with the presidential nomination.” Romney commented Trump on social media in recent weeks, especially part that “slowness to denounce the Ku Klux Klan was disqualifying for a presidential candidate.”
“Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” Romney said. “His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.”
Former Governor of Massachusetts and 2012 presidential candidate, where Trump won on Super Tuesday, questioned Trump’s economic policies and that he can not represent America in the world, the Times published.
A Professor Dan Gilmor of the Arizona State Universities’ Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication on digital media literacy and entrepreneurship tweeted that “not running for president frees at least one prominent Republican to explain who Trump really is and what he represents.”
