Utah Senator Mitt Romney is not shy when it comes to his feelings about Donald Trump’s presidency, that’s for sure. The longtime moderate Republican seems to possess a very real and rank disdain for the NYC business-mogul turned politician, and he’s not afraid to show it.
Trump, as expected, doesn’t care much for Romney either, and the two have had a few bouts of bickering over the course of the Commander in Chief’s first term.
Now, as Trump continues to contest the results of the 2020 election, Romney is again lashing out.
From a recent appearance on MSNBC:
Romney said, “The biggest concern that I have is that people here genuinely believe that somehow this election was stolen, and there’s not evidence of that. The president was saying it was stolen even before election day happened! He said if he loses, it would be fraud. Well, no one knows that. I thought I was going to win too when I ran for president in 2012. I didn’t. I didn’t go out and say fraud. We have a process. We count the votes. That’s the way it is.”
He added, “I’m concerned that the cause of democracy here as well as around the world — people look to us. We’re the democratic leader of the world. What’s going on now, I’m afraid, is terribly dispiriting to people all around the globe.”
President Trump has insisted that the election was stolen via widespread voter fraud, but has thus far failed to prove this in court.
