Mitt Romney is just like Hillary Clinton. Six years later, he’s still upset that he’s not president. So, instead of coming to Washington as a problem solver like he campaigned, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney chose to start his tenure as Utah’s junior United States Senator as part of the problem.
In the midst of a government shutdown over securing our border, Romney chose to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi by attacking President Donald Trump in an op-ed in The Washington Post instead of offering his opinion about how to solve our illegal immigration crisis and end the shutdown. Oh Mitt, why am I not surprised? This behavior is extremely disappointing coming from someone who was the Republican nominee for President in 2012. Romney should be helping President Trump, not trying out for CNN’s next anti-Trump Republican talking head.
First of all, why did Senator Romney choose the Washington Post for his op-ed? Why not choose a paper in Utah, the state that he represents? It’s because Romney is a swamp creature more concerned about raising his own national profile than representing the people of Utah.
