Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has never been what you might call a “true believer” in Donald Trump as the president of the United States, but it seems he’s really, really been trying hard to avoid getting close in any capacity to the president.
Romney, who is locked in a battle with a conservative state lawmaker for a Republican Senate seat, has been forced to defend that distance due to allegations that he can’t get along with President Trump, making him an outsider and someone who is opposed to the president’s agenda.
Romney predicted earlier this month that Trump would win re-election in 2020. He hasn’t endorsed him, though, and declined to do so this week, saying it’s too early and he expects Trump to have an as-yet-unknown challenger for the Republican nomination.
Still, Romney’s tone has changed considerably since the 2016 campaign when he called then-candidate Trump a “phony” and a “fraud.” Things change after a president is elected, Romney said, adding that he’ll get behind good policies while criticizing bad ones.
Romney declined to say, though, whether he’s in favor of the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to the spike in family separations.
Folks might not want to admit it, but Romney is known for his compromising on important principles of conservatism and for not supporting certain solutions to issues that require a hardline stance.
In other words, he’s a RINO. A big one. He failed twice at the presidency, has a hard time getting on board with the president, and would do anything to win. Does this sound like the kind of politician we need in this country?
It’s not. What we need are people who understand what our Founding Fathers intended for our nation and who will stand for those truths no matter what.
Let’s hope we find some of those folks and fast.
