Mitt Romney carpet bagged into Utah from one of his lavish out-of-state homes he paid for by shipping American jobs overseas and ran for Senate.
Of course he needed Trump’s help or at least his blessing and endorsement and he go it with Trump tweeting at the time:
“@MittRomney has announced he is running for the Senate from the wonderful State of Utah. He will make a great Senator and worthy successor to @OrrinHatch, and has my full support and endorsement!”
If you doubt Mitt made his fortune shipping jobs overseas google Bain Capital and what they really did to American workers.
So it doesn’t come as a surprise that Mitt became the first Republican Senator to stab Trump in the back.
Don’t expect more defections anytime soon, we have an election coming up and the cowards in DC wouldn’t dare cross Trump as they remain unpopular while Trump has high approval ratings.
From The Hill:
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Friday broke sharply with President Trump’s call for China and Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, calling it “wrong and appalling.”
“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated,” Romney said in a statement, which he also tweeted out.
“By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.”
The day before, Trump floated to reporters outside of the White House that the two countries should probe Biden, the Democratic 2020 front-runner, and his son, Hunter Biden, even as House Democrats work on an impeachment inquiry centered on allegations that Trump sought to withhold aid to Ukraine as an effort to get Kiev to launch a probe.
“China should start an investigation into the Bidens,” Trump said in front of cameras on the South Lawn.
The president added that he had not explicitly asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to open such a probe, but that it’s “certainly something we can start thinking about.”
By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.
