Mitt Romney was confronted by impassioned President Trump supporters while waiting to board his flight and while he traveled to Washington, D.C. Trump supporters repeatedly questioned the Utah representative if he plans support Republican lawmakers bid to overturn the election by objecting to the Electoral College certification process scheduled for today. Romney was adamant that he does not plan to object to the certification and referenced the Constitution as his reason for voting to confirm Joe Biden.

Fox News reports:
“Why aren’t you supporting President Trump?” asked one woman, who approached Romney while he sat in the airport waiting area using his iPad, noting that she would agree to put on a mask because she wanted to have a “chat” with him.
“I do agree with many of the things he is for, and I support those things,” the Utah senator replied, in reference to the president.
“No,” he replied. “It’s a long story, but we have a Constitution; the Constitution process is clear. I will follow the Constitution, and I will explain all that when we meet in Congress this week.”
The woman continued to confront Romney for not voting to reelect the president, adding that he had been voted in “as a conservative to represent the conservative constituents. Period.”
As Romney left his seat following the exchange the Senator reminded the woman that he works for the people of Utah first. The woman replied that she is a Utah constituent and would work to ensure that Romney is not re-elected to office calling him a “joke.”
When Romney boarded his flight he was meet by chants calling him a “traitor” by Trump supporters.
