    Incoming Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) revealed he would support President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall one day after publishing an opinion piece in The Washington Post critiquing nearly everything about the current administration. “I would vote for the border wall,” Romney, former Republican presidential candidate, told CNN’s Jake Tapper in a Wednesday afternoon interview. “We should have a wall on the southern border,” the former governor of Massachusetts added. While he considers the government shutdown ― which has gone on for nearly two weeks ― an “unfortunate” situation, Romney did not directly criticize it.
  • Romney assails Trump in New Year's op-ed: 'The president has not risen to the mantle of the office'

    Days before he officially becomes a U.S. senator, Mitt Romney took to the Washington Post to fire a shot across President Trumps bow, saying Mr. Trump had made a deep descent in December and is hurting the national character. In an op-ed column published online Tuesday evening, Mr. Romney, now a Republican senator-elect for Utah, came down hardest on recent moves in foreign policy and Cabinet positions related to that. After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the...

    Mitt Romney cant "conceive of thinking or saying" the news media is an enemy as President Donald Trump continues to do, according to an essay he posted on his campaign website Thursday. Romney wrote that someone asked him at a recent campaign event whether he would take action to shut down ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN and the New York Times. "When I responded of course not, and that, in fact, I would do everything in my power to preserve freedom of speech, the person persisted by arguing that these outlets purvey fake news," the Republican U.S. Senate candidate said.

    Mitt Romney, the GOP nominee and front-runner in Utahs U.S. Senate race, said Friday that had he been in office, he would have supported the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who appears poised to be confirmed Saturday. I would vote to confirm Judge Kavanaugh, Romney said, given his decades of admirable public service and his 12-year record as an accomplished justice on the second highest court of the land.

  • Its Happening (Maybe): Romney Reportedly Set To Run For Senate In Utah If Orrin Hatch Retires

    Hotair ^ | 09/12/2017 | AllahPundit
    Alternate headline: “Orrin Hatch must retire.” And there’s a fair chance that he will! He’s 83 and said in March that he’d be more inclined to step down if he could get a “really outstanding person” to run for his seat. When asked if he had anyone in mind, he said “Mitt Romney would be perfect.” That lit the fuse on RomneyWatch 2018, leading to reports that Romney was thinking about it and had even spoken to Mitch McConnell about running. But then in May the speculation seemed to fizzle: Hatch himself claimed that Romney told him he wouldn’t...

    A dinner between President-elect Donald Trump and Mitt Romney turned into a Twitter caption contest late Tuesday night. Trump met with Romney at the Jean-Georges restaurant in Manhattan amid speculation that the former Massachusetts governor could be selected as secretary of state. The pair was joined by Reince Priebus, Trump's top pick for chief of staff. Following the dinner Romney praised the president-elect, saying that he has "increasing hope" that Trump can lead the country to a "better future." Photos of the dinner surfaced on social media sites following the meeting, prompting users to post their own commentary about how...

I encouraged her to do so. Most importantly she fully acknowledged there is only one person that makes the decision. She has always been a tremendous asset and that will continue.

    One of President-elect Donald Trump's top advisers said Sunday that his loyal supporters across the country feel "betrayed" that he is considering one of his most vicious critics, Mitt Romney, for secretary of state. "I'm all for party unity, but I'm not sure we have to pay for that with secretary of state position," Kellyanne Conway, Trump's campaign manager, told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union." She added: "It's just breathtaking in scope and intensity the type of messages I've received from all over the country ... the number of people who feel betrayed to think that Gov....

    Fox News is reporting that Donald Trumps transition team wants Mitt Romney to publicly apologize for railing against the president-elect during the campaign. A transition official told Foxs Ed Henry that some in Trumps inner circle want the former Massachusetts governor to apologize in order to be seriously considered for the secretary of State. Trump is reportedly considering whether to pick Romney or former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for the coveted cabinet position. Giuliani is the preferred choice of Trumps loyalists and grassroots supporters, while Romney is a favorite of establishment conservatives. Its not about that I dont...

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Sunday that Mitt Romney is under "active consideration" to serve as secretary of State in a Donald Trump administration. "The president-elect was very grateful that the Gov. Mitt Romney came out," Pence said on "Fox News Sunday." "They had a good meeting. It was a warm and a substantive exchange." Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, met with Trump on Saturday to discuss foreign policy. Pence said he and members of the Trump team spent about an hour with Romney. He said the team talked through substantive issues.

    Reaaaaaaaally smart move by Trump. Although I wonder how much trouble he might be having in staffing up if hes reaching out to Trumpers least favorite Republican for a job. Could be that this is just symbolic outreach to his critics in the GOP, as todays meeting with Nikki Haley probably is, and nothing more will come of it. Even if so, thats smart. Building goodwill among traditional Republicans will buy him a unified party for awhile and keep his critics on the right quieter for longer than they otherwise might have been. And its a shrewd way of signaling...

  • Hal Boyd: Gary Johnson says Mitt Romney would be 'guaranteed' a spot in his administration

    On Friday, former Gov. Gary Johnson offered a guarantee. If Mitt Romney wants to be a part of the administration, that would be a guarantee. The comments came at Fridays joint Deseret News-KSL editorial board meeting with Johnson and Bill Weld. I asked Johnson what role, if any, Romney might play in a Johnson-Weld administration. Although the Libertarian nominee seemed to doubt whether Romney would really be interested, he said the former Republican presidential nominee would be free to, in essence, choose his own adventure. I think [the position] would be for Mitt Romney to decide and I say...
