Attempting to separate himself from President Trump as the primary approaches Tuesday Mitt Romney penned an op-ed to the Salt Lake Tribune. In the op-ed, Mr. Romney had some harsh words for the actions of the president.
According to the Daily Mail:
Mitt Romney told Utah voters he won’t stay silent when President Donald Trump says or does something ‘divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions.’
But, he added, he will support the administration when it’s in the best interests of Utah.
Romney’s comments, made in an op-ed in the Salt Lake Tribune, come ahead of Tuesday’s primary contest for Utah’s Senate seat against state Rep. Mike Kennedy.
In his opinion piece, he sought to clarify his thoughts on Trump – a man he has both derided and praised.
This looks like typical Mitt. Moving from one stance to another depending on what the political climate is at the time. Hopefully, he can find an opinion to stand firm on if he is elected to serve in the Senate.
