Mitt Romney Talks to CNN About Trump’s Sad, Embarrassing End
Donald Trump entered the White House in January of 2017 roaring like a lion. He told Americans that they would get tired of winning so much. He also vowed to undo all of Barack Obama’s accomplishments.
Trump is now exiting the White House in much more pathetic fashion. Joe Biden defeated Trump by more than 7 million popular votes and 74 Electoral College votes. Rather than talking his loss with class, though, Trump has continued to fight and lose in court. During a Sunday morning interview with Jake Tapper, Mitt Romney said that the president’s end is sad and embarrassing.
During a recent White House meeting, Trump broached the topic of utilizing martial law and re-running elections in certain states. Tapper asked the Utah Republican, “What will Senate Republicans do to make sure none of this madness happens?”
Romney answered, “It’s not going to happen. It’s going nowhere. It’s really sad in a lot of respects and embarrassing because the president could, right now, be writing the last chapter of this administration with a victory lap with regards to the vaccine.”
The frequent Trump critic continued, “[Trump] could be going out championing this story. But instead, he’s leaving Washington with conspiracy theories and things that are so nutty and loopy that people are shaking their head wondering in the world has gotten into this man? I think that is unfortunate because he has more accomplishments than this last chapter suggests he’s going to be known for.”
