Donald Trump: Mitt Romney Fights Me More than He Did Barack Obama

Mitt Romney: Trump's biggest failure is a lack of character in leading 'divided' nation Mitt Romney: Trump has caused worldwide dismay

And in classic counter-puncher fashion, Trump questioned in a Wednesday morning tweet whether Romney would be "a Flake", a reference to outgoing Arizona GOP Sen.

Mr Romney's article has been widely discussed and covered across United States media. Question will be, is he a Flake?

When a questioner confronted him with Trump's tendency to insult and name-call, Paul said that while he doesn't want to say "I give the president a pass" on such behavior, he thinks it is "more important to look at what we have in common, policy-wise, legislation-wise, what we can get accomplished" and that it doesn't "serve any objective other than gratifying oneself to criticize the president's character". "He should be happy for all Republicans", the president wrote.

Asked about the possibility that Romney intends to run against Trump in 2020, Paul pointed out that Trump was able to win some states, such as MI and Pennsylvania, that Romney was not. He later said he would not have taken Trump's endorsement for president had he made the public comments Romney has since rebuked.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee blamed Donald Trump for failing to bring together a divided and resentful nation, and also slammed him for undermining the US' credibility across the globe. "I hope not", Trump said.

Sen. -elect Mitt Romney has broadly criticized President Donald Trump's policies and character in a newspaper column, arguing that the president "has not risen to the mantle of the office".

In the op-ed on Tuesday, Romney said he "will speak out against significant statements or actions that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions".

Romney slammed the Trump Presidency for appointing persons with less experience to take over key roles, such as the White House Cheif of Staff and the Secretary of Defense after John Kelly and Jim Mattis announced their departures in December.

But George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, shot back at Trump's claim that, "I won big and he didn't", by noting that Romney actually did better against President Barack Obama in 2012 than Trump did against Hillary Clinton in 2016.

In his speech announcing his retirement, Flake denounced the "complicity" of his own party in what he called an "alarming and risky state of affairs" under Trump and blamed the President for setting the tone.

Romney emerged as a leader of the GOP "Never Trump" movement, attacking Trump as a "phony" and urging primary voters to pick someone else.

Romney has had his public run-ins with the president. It would be tricky terrain for Sasse to publicly battle with Trump, who won the state in 2016 by 25 percentage points.

Some analysts have speculated that Romney's Senate seat could set him up for another presidential run, possibly as soon as 2020, when Trump will seek re-election. "Trump's words and actions have caused dismay around the world".

Mitt Romney entered 2019 with a fiery rant that cast doubt on Donald Trump's fitness and suitability to serve as the most senior politician in Washington.

Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday to raise the specter of departing Sen.

The Romney op-ed is ostensibly about character.
