President Trump has responded this morning after failed Republican presidential candidate and Senator-elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) issued an op-ed in the Washington Post critical of the commander-in-chief.
In a New Year’s Day op-ed, Romney said the president “has not risen to the mantle of the office” and suggested he had “glaring” shortfalls in his character.
President Trump took aim this morning, questioning whether or not Romney will be like former GOP Senator (and total sellout) Jeff Flake (AZ).
“Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!”
Last February, Romney had no problem accepting President Trump’s endorsement during his Senate run.
After the President tweeted his support for Romney, he responded, “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah.”
