Romney: Trump Hasn't 'Risen to the Mantle of Office'

Crystal ball

"I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney", he said in 2011. Since then, Trump endorsed Romney's Senate bid in Utah.

Sen. -elect Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee, slammed President Trump's leadership, writing in an editorial in The Washington Post that "the president has not risen to the mantle of the office".

In his column for the Washington Post, Romney said Trump "has not risen to the mantle of the office". Question will be, is he a Flake?

Or, others asked, was Romney, a two-time presidential hopeful, signaling he might try to challenge the president in the 2020 Republican primary election?

He added that "Trump's words and actions have caused dismay around the world" and cited Pew reports suggesting belief among people in Germany, Britain, France, Canada and Sweden that Trump would "do the right thing" had fallen from 84% in 2016 to 16% a year later. I won big, and he didn't. "He should be happy for all Republicans", he wrote. His early appointments of Rex Tillerson, Jeff Sessions, Nikki Haley, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster, Kelly and Mattis were encouraging. Romney called presidential candidate Trump a fraud and a phoney in 2016. "It is very much our friend", Mr Romney wrote in an essay in November. "Be a TEAM player & WIN!" "But policies and appointments are only a part of a presidency", he wrote.

"With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable", he wrote ahead of his swearing-in Thursday. He also tweeted "jealousy is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it". He later said he would not have taken Trump's endorsement for president had he made the public comments Romney has since rebuked.

Romney, a former MA governor and the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, added that other nations are paying attention to what's happening in the U.S.

The scathing rebuke of Trump's leadership from the former MA governor and Republican presidential nominee comes just two days before Romney is set to be sworn in as Utah's junior senator.

For most of the first two years of Trump's presidency, Republican lawmakers muted their concerns about him or expressed them privately. "I'm not surprised, but I'm disappointed", Bossie said.
