    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) ripped the administration over the recently announced cease-fire in Syria, calling President Trump's decision to withdraw troops "a bloodstain in the annals of American history." "The announcement today is being portrayed as a victory. It is far from a victory. Serious questions remain about how the decision was reached precipitously to withdraw from Syria and why that decision was reached," Romney said. Romney's Senate floor speech came after Vice President Pence announced a five-day cease-fire. Under the agreement Pence said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan agreed to halt Turkey’s offensive in Syria for 120 hours in...

    SALT LAKE CITY Reports emerged last week that some Republican donors are encouraging Utah Sen. Mitt Romney to run against President Donald Trump in 2020, and Romney addressed those rumors Thursday by saying there is "no circumstance I can conceive of that would have me running for national office again. But that isn't stopping some Republicans from trying to change his mind. Anthony Scaramucci, Trump's short-lived former communications director turned prominent critic, tweeted a link Friday to a website selling Romney 2020 T-shirts and attempting to "nudge" the senator into a run. Featuring slogans like "commit to Mitt" and...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) confirmed Thursday that he will not mount a primary challenge to President Donald Trump, stating that the president will be the Republican presidential nominee and likely win re-election in 2020.

He is a pompous ass who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didnt give it to him)....

    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 Chinas 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.
  • As Republicans Face Impeachment Dilemma, Romney is a Lonely Voice of Concern

    NY Times ^ | Sep 26 2019 | Jonathan Martin
    As House Democrats push forward with an impeachment inquiry into President Trump, Republicans have largely rushed to Mr. Trumps defense, or at least tempered their criticism to avoid his furious reprisals. Among the handful of exceptions, though, there has been none louder or more prominent than Senator Mitt Romney of Utah, a figure who once embodied the essence of the Republican Party before Mr. Trump commandeered it, and is now in a lonely category of his own. Since the first reports a week ago that Mr. Trump urged President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R....

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) told NBC News' Geoff Bennett on Monday that the Trump administration should make the whistleblower complaint that reportedly involves the president and Ukraine available to Congress, adding that it would be "very helpful to get [to] the bottom of the facts." The big picture: Romney continues to be the only Republican senator to condemn allegations that Trump pressured Ukraine's president to investigate Joe Biden, tweeting on Sunday that the reports are "troubling in the extreme."...........

    President Trump asking Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden would be troubling in the extreme, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday. Romneys comments come after a report published Saturday by the Wall Street Journal which said a whistleblower claimed that the president urged Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky during a July phone call to look into Bidens son Hunters business dealings with the eastern European country. The report stated: He told him that he should work with [Mr. Giuliani] on Biden, and that people in Washington wanted to know whether allegations were true or not, one of the people said. Mr. Trump...

Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.). "It certainly should be applied to commercial sales and finding a more comprehensive way to make sure that people are in the system that ought to be in the system," Romney told reporters when asked about expanding background checks. Asked if he would support legislation from Manchin and Toomey, which would expand gun background checks to all commercial sales, Romney said he had...

    Seven years after running for president as the GOP standard bearer, U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney on Monday described himself as a renegade Republican and said that he is not part of the Republican establishment these days. In a wide-ranging speech at the Sutherland Institute, a conservative think tank in Salt Lake City, Utahs junior senator argued against socialist proposals being discussed on the Democratic presidential debate stage such as Medicare for All and free college tuition. He also lamented that neither party is interested in talking about the debt and the deficit. I guess I should consider myself a renegade...

    SALT LAKE CITY U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney said Monday that he believes climate change is happening and human activity is a significant contributor. During a speech at the conservative Sutherland Institute in Salt Lake City, the senator acknowledged that the position is rare among his fellow Republicans, but one that younger people seem to respond to more strongly than older conservatives. In some respects, (by speaking with newer conservatives), Ill be able to make inroads with some of the young people coming along, he said.

    In an exclusive interview with the Washington Examiner, conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter shared her thoughts on the current political environment, including topics ranging from President Trump and the Republican National Committee to the Democratic presidential hopefuls. Coulter began by slamming Trump for failing to fulfill his campaign promise of building a wall on the southern border. [Trump] deserves to lose. We dont deserve a Democrat though, Coulter said before adding that she has repeatedly told Trump that he does not need Congress to build the wall. When asked what she is most satisfied with about the Trump presidency,...

    Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney backstabbed President Donald Trump again this week and formed a political alliance with a top Democrat to go after the president. The Daily Beast reports that Romney held a secret meeting with former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid -- and they discussed how to get rid of Trump. While speaking with The Daily Beast, Reid lamented that he was "pretty damn worried" about Trump winning re-election in 2020. Reid has also reportedly been reaching out to certain congressional Republicans in an attempt to persuade them to publicly rebuke Trump. So it's not too surprising he...

    After tracking Republican responses to President Donald Trumps racist tweets over the last couple of days, we can say this: Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, offered one of the strongest condemnations of anyone in his party. But thats mostly a function of the tepidness of the partys broader response. And its hardly the standard Romney has set for himself. Romney offered a couple responses Monday to Trumps tweets urging nonwhite congresswomen to go back to their countries, both impromptu and in a prepared statement. He said Trumps sentiment was destructive, was demeaning, was disunifying and frankly was very wrong. He added...

    Two Republican senators said Tuesday the rape allegation made against President Donald Trump by writer E. Jean Carroll should be explored to determine the veracity of the allegation against the President -- even as many Senate Republicans sidestepped questions over the matter and defended Trump. Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa said both Trump and Carroll should be questioned about the alleged assault. "I think anybody that makes an accusation like that, they should come forward," Ernst said when asked if Carroll should be believed. "But obviously there has to be some additional information. They need to interview her. They need...

    Of all the Never-Trumpers, Romney is the most danagerous. Thankfully, McCain, Flake and Ryan are gone. George Will and Peggy Noonan have been thoroughly outed as fake conservatives. But Romney, owing to his national name recognition, is still a major obstacle thwarting the Rivival of our Republic. The irony is that Romney, the Elite's handpicked "Presidential Puppet" and "Designated Loser" has been totally outclassed by Trump in the last two and a half years. All Romney seems to be good at is losing, but Trump has chaulked up win after win after win as President and Diplomat. With back-to-back...
