Now That He’s a Senate Candidate, Romney Reestablishes Anti-Trump Stance

Remember that guy… Mitt Romney? I think he got whooped in a couple Presidential races or something like that. Probably a very bitter, creaky establishment player.

As you’ve probably heard, he’s back. Now that he’s won his state’s primary to run for the U.S. Senate, it appears he’s going back to his establishment roots and taking a subtle, but on the other hand obvious stance against Trump.

When will these old, deep-state establishment politicians learn that America will NOT tolerate that? We’re looking for non-politicians to lead us… not slick-haired ancients like Mitt Romney.

DailyWire reports:

Former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney coasted to victory in Utah’s GOP primary last week, practically guaranteeing he’ll be elected to the Senate, filling the seat of retiring Utah Republican, Orrin Hatch.

And now that he’s more than likely heading back to Washington, D.C., Romney is again positioning himself as a foil to President Donald Trump, telling MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt that he “doesn’t know” whom he’ll support for president in 2020, when Trump will be running for his second term, and that Robert Mueller’s investigation into whether the Trump campaign collaborated with Russian officials to influence the 2016 presidential election is “totally appropriate.”

He first told Hunt that he doesn’t plan on opposing Robert Mueller’s investigation, and that the more-than-a-year-long probe is “totally appropriate.”

As for the president, well, although Romney was warmer to Trump a month ago, winning the primary seems to have relieved him of any need to forge difficult allegiances.

“There will be people who decide, I presume, to get in a Republican primary,” Romney told Hunt Monday.

Although Republicans are generally expected to support their party’s candidate if that candidate is seeking re-election, Romney followed up by noting that it’s simply “too early” to jump on anyone’s bandwagon.

Romney probably isn’t making a firm commitment not to vote for Trump in 2020, but the outspoken, moderate Republican probably isn’t interested in making that kind of commitment to Trump, either. Right now, it can fairly be said that Trump has his good points, and that, with Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement, the promise social conservatives and Evangelical Christians put in a Trump presidency will likely be fulfilled.
