    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday declined to answer questions about whether he felt President Trump's tweet attacking four Democratic congresswomen was racist. In a video tweeted by NBC News reporter Alison King, the Utah senator is asked if he would call Trump's tweet—which suggested the four lawmakers "go back" to their home countries—racist. "That's all I got, thanks," Romney said, before walking off. The Hill has reached out to Romney's office for comment. Romney told King that Trump "fell far short" in his calling to unite Americans. "I certainly feel a number of these new members of Congress have...

    Lawmakers are returning to Congress on Monday following a racist series of tweets from President Donald Trump aimed at four Democratic lawmakers, and Republican leaders as well as rank-and-file members are feeling the pressure to weigh in on the President's comments. But many leaders in the party are so far not weighing in publicly -- including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. "If he issues a statement on this we'll be sure to forward," said McConnell spokesman David Popp in response to a question from CNN. While many Republican leaders in Congress have thus far not spoken out, some GOP members...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Mitt Romney took issue with President Donald Trump defending his relationship with the Saudi Arabian leader who allegedly ordered the hit on a Washington Post columnist. Trump said he was "extremely angry and very unhappy" about the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi but claimed "nobody has directly pointed a finger" at Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, despite U.S. intelligence and a United Nations report saying otherwise. Trump had breakfast with the crown prince in Osaka, Japan, over the weekend, but did not press him on his involvement in Khashoggi's murder. "The President’s praise for MBS,...
  • Hypocrisy of Trump critics on Iran who criticized Romney's Benghazi comments on 9/11/2012

    I am not a Romney fan, but it is hypocritical for the Establishment to call Trump weak on Iran when they attacked Romney for his comments after the Obama Administration blamed Benghazi on a video. https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/decision2012/romney-repeats-sharp-criticism-of-obama-on-libya-egypt-attacks/2012/09/12/31074af4-fcdf-11e1-b153-218509a954e1_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.b44b8136e5d8 “It almost feels like Sarah Palin is his foreign policy adviser,” Matthew Dowd, who was a top strategist for president George W. Bush, said in an interview. “It’s just a huge mistake on the Romney campaign’s part — huge mistake.” "running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.) — appeared to undercut him with noticeably more conciliatory and somber responses. “This is a time for healing....

    Of all the Never-Trumpers, Romney is the most danagerous. Thankfully, McCain, Flake and Ryan are gone.  George Will and Peggy Noonan have been thoroughly outed as fake conservatives.  But Romney, owing to his national name recognition, is still a major obstacle thwarting the Rivival of our Republic. The irony is that Romney, the Elite's handpicked "Presidential Puppet" and "Designated Loser" has been totally outclassed by Trump in the last two and a half years.  All Romney seems to be good at is losing, but Trump has chaulked up win after win after win as President and Diplomat. With back-to-back...

    <p>Two Republican senators have split from their colleagues in calling for Donald Trump’s alleged rape of the author E. Jean Carroll to be investigated. Carrol, an advice columnist for Elle magazine, claims in an upcoming book about “hideous men” in her life that the US president forced himself on her in a changing room at New York’s Bergdorf Goodman department store in 1995 or 1996. She describes a “colossal struggle” in which Mr Trump entered her “halfway – or completely, I’m not certain”.</p>

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) joked about his multiple homes during a hearing Wednesday in arguing against a provision that would tie lawmaker pay to Congress's ability to pass a budget. The former Massachusetts governor and 2012 GOP presidential nominee argued that the “No Budget, No Pay” proposal would not affect him personally, but could hurt lower-income legislators. When he noted that he personally would not be affected, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who supports the proposal and offered an amendment at the hearing, joked, “We’re all just moving into your house.” “You’re welcome,” Romney quipped. “Which one?”

    President Donald Trump's son is planning to campaign against the only Republican congressman who has called for his father's impeachment. Donald Trump Jr. will be heading to Michigan to fight Rep. Justin Amash in a primary battle, people close to the Trump Organization executive told CNBC on the condition of anonymity. This comes after Trump's son tweeted out a poll showing Amash losing to his only challenger so far in the race, state legislator Jim Lower, and hinting he will be heading to the Wolverine State to take on the four-term lawmaker. "See you soon Justin... I hear Michigan is...

    The Hill ^ | 06/10/19 | Juliegrace Brufke
    Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) has opted to quit the House Freedom Caucus in the wake of his comments in support of moving forward with impeachment proceedings. The Freedom Caucus voted to condemn the Michigan Republican's remarks last month, but the group opted not to force him out despite a divide among members. Amash was the first — and only — Republican House member to publicly say he thought President Trump had committed impeachable offenses after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. He has since doubled down multiple times on his statement...

    Seventy-five conservative groups signed a public letter to Congress opposing “any carbon tax” days after reports that Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney openly considered backing carbon tax bill. “We oppose any carbon tax,” conservative groups, led by Americans for Tax Reform, wrote in their letter, which was published online Monday morning. While the letter is not specifically aimed at Romney, it’s meant to warn Republicans that their conservative base is not in favor of taxing carbon dioxide emissions.

    Utah Sen. Mitt Romney said Friday he may decline to support Donald Trump for president in 2020, explaining, “I wouldn't be surprised if I stay out of the endorsements." The 2012 Republican presidential nominee, who has not shied away from criticizing Trump, told reporters at his annual E2 Summit in the Utah ski-resort town of Park City that he doesn’t thing endorsements really matter anyway "I don't think endorsements are worth a thimble of spit," Romney said. Romney in 2016 refused to support Trump, famously giving a speech in which he referred to the candidate as a “phony, a fraud."...
  • Mitt Romney is congressional Republicans’ secret weapon on trade

    The Washington Post ^ | June 6, 2019 | Henry Olsen
    Republicans in Congress are confused about how to respond to President Trump’s multi-front trade war. With strong free-trade ideals but also cognizance of political and geopolitical concerns about Chinese competition, they stand paralyzed and inert. Mitt Romney can help them break out of their slumber. Romney, now a senator from Utah, is uniquely positioned to lead his Republican colleagues on trade policy. He is unquestionably a leader of the party’s business and establishment wings. Those elements are strongly opposed to trade restriction, and deeply uneasy about Trump’s tariff wars, and they want nothing more than a quick end to all...

    A number of Republicans in the Senate are standing with President Donald Trump over his threat to apply tariffs to Mexico on Tuesday after several party members spoke out against it. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that “there is not much support in my conference for tariffs” and he is hoping that the tariffs are not implemented. Other Senators also decided to speak out against Trump’s threat. Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney said he will not support applying a tariff to Mexico, saying he “would not be inclined to vote [for] a tariff against a friend,” Politico reported...

    Sen. Mitt Romney warned Friday that President Donald Trump’s proposed tariffs against Mexico were the wrong approach and could harm Americans more than they help curtail illegal immigration. “A tariff targeting Mexico that negatively impacts our own interests will only end in a waiting game of increasingly harmful consequence to the American people,” Romney said.

    The maelstrom of political controversy regarding Free Republic founder Jim Robinson and his attitude towards the then Republican presidential candidate front runner and odds-on favorite to win the nomination, as anointed by the msm as the weakest candidate in the Repuplican field, was one punctuated by severe criticism of Mr. Robinson for his uncompromising, vituperative take-no-prisoners stance towards the liberal bent, RINO candidate Mr. Romney,as unacceptable under any circumstances as Republican Party nominee in the 2012 presidential election. While his intensely vociferous stance against Mr. Romney surprised, confused, alienated many, the political rationale for the utter blanket rejection of Mr....

    Soon after Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., went against the GOP consensus by claiming President Trump committed "impeachable conduct" in the form of obstruction of justice, another known Trump critic took the opposite position. Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, acknowledged that while he has called out Trump when he's deemed it appropriate, he does not believe the Mueller report provided evidence that supports impeaching the president. AS BIDEN DOWNPLAYS CHINA THREAT, ROMNEY HAS A NEW WARNING "I just don’t think that there is the full element that you’d need to prove an obstruction of justice case," Romney told host Jake Tapper on...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), who voted to block President Donald Trump's border national emergency declaration, has said there is a "real crisis" on the southern border. "I hope people in both parties, as well as people across the country, realize there's a real crisis right now at our southern border. We are at a rate of about 1 million people a year trying to cross into the country," Romney said in a Facebook video posted in April. "These are folks we're not able to properly evaluate, investigate and to vet and as a result, we don't know exactly who they...
