    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) is receiving a profile in courage award from the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation for his “historic vote” to impeach then-President Trump during his first impeachment trial last year, the foundation announced on Friday. “Senator Romney‘s commitment to our Constitution makes him a worthy successor to the senators who inspired my father to write 'Profiles in Courage,'” former Ambassador Caroline Kennedy said in a statement. “He reminds us that our Democracy depends on the courage, conscience and character of our elected officials.” Romney was the sole Republican senator to vote to impeach Trump last February on...

    Article Dig In Sen. Mitt Romney on Thursday proposed providing monthly payments to families with children to help them weather the COVID-19 pandemic. "This proposal offers a path toward greater security for America’s families by consolidating the many complicated programs to create a monthly cash benefit for them, without adding to the deficit,” Romney said in a press release. The Utah Republican said the proposal would streamline existing family policies to create one universal child benefit, titled the Family Security Act. Under the proposal, the existing child tax credit would be replaced with monthly payments of $350 for children ages...
  • David Limbaugh: Mitt Romney’s unabashed hatred of Trump blinds him to reality of president’s popularity

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, is grieving over, as CNN reporter Dana Bash put it, President Trump's "very firm grip on the Republican Party." Bash recently asked Romney whether he fears the party won't "be able to overcome Trumpism in the near future." Romney didn't object to Bash's negative characterization of Trumpism. He merely responded that he believes "Trump will continue to have a substantial influence on the party" and that those other than Trump who are rumored to be GOP presidential candidates in 2024 "are trying to appeal to kind of a populist approach."

    Senator. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, called President Trump’s refusal to concede the 2020 election “really sad” and “embarrassing” on Sunday. “I understand the president is casting about, trying to find some way to have a different result than the one that was delivered by the American people,” Romney told CNN’s “State of the Union.” “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.” “He could be going out championing this extraordinary success, and instead he’s leaving Washington...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Thursday on CNN’s “Situation Room” that President Donald Trump’s leadership through the coronavirus pandemic had been “a great human tragedy.” Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “Yesterday on the coronavirus, it was the single deadliest day of the pandemic. More than 2,800 Americans were reported dead just yesterday alone, more than 100,000 people are hospitalized all across the country. The CDC director says the next three months will be, in his words, the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation. So here is the question, Senator, where is the president’s leadership? He’s obsessed...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Sen. Mitt Romney said Friday that politicians attacking the vote by mail system are threatening global democracy but stopped short of criticizing President Donald Trump, who has been openly against an expected surge of mail-in ballots. The United States must stand as an example to more fragile democratic nations to show that elections can be held in a free and fair manner, Romney said. He urged the federal government to make every effort to ensure that people are able to vote in the general election this November. “That’s more important even than the outcome of...

    Sen. Mitt Romney called President Trump’s plan to reduce the number of U.S. troops in Germany a “grave error.” The Utah Republican unleashed a scathing complaint after Defense Secretary Mark Esper announced on Wednesday that the Pentagon would start the process of pulling some 11,900 troops out of the country “within weeks.”

"No Americans should fear enmity and harm from those sworn to protect us. The death of George Floyd must not be in vain: Our shock and outrage must grow into collective determination to extinguish forever such racist abuse."

    The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year. Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday. "BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in...

    While speaking to reporters on Monday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said that he is keeping an open mind on which witnesses he wants to hear from in the Senate impeachment trial, and wants to hear from former National Security Adviser John Bolton. Romney said, “I support the Clinton impeachment model, which is a vote on witnesses later. But as to which witnesses I’d want to hear from, and so forth, that’s something which I’m open to until after the opening arguments.” He added that Bolton is “someone who I would like to hear from, and presumably, I’d get the chance...

    I want to tell you, Matthew, that yesterday and today Senator Mitt Romney, Republican, Utah, had phone calls or meetings, whatever, with Pelosi and assured her there was Republican support to remove Trump. Romney is a Never Trumper, and, if he can, he will get rid of Trump. I don’t think that means that Romney has enough Republicans to actually convict. Romney is just staking a claim to a political position. Romney thinks it’s in his best political interests for everybody to think he hates Trump. That’s how he thinks he’s going to politically benefit, whatever his next ambitions are....

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Sunday it would be “troubling in the extreme” if President Trump urged Ukrainian officials to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden. “If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. Critical for the facts to come out,” Romney tweeted.

    The president’s comments were destructive, demeaning, and disunifying. The President of the United States has a unique and noble calling to unite the American people – of all different races, colors, and national origins. In that respect, the president failed badly.

    Ronald Reagan’s “Eleventh Commandment” reads, “Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.” The former president’s sage advice went ignored once again last week by the freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney when he published his anti-Trump oped in The Washington Post. Romney didn’t have a problem accepting Donald Trump’s endorsement for Senate to get the job in the first place, but hey, that’s politics, right? Like most positions Mitt Romney takes, I guess he was against Trump before he was okay with Trump before he was against him again. Romney lamented in his article that the president hasn’t changed his...

    Two days before he was sworn in as Utah's junior U.S. senator, Mitt Romney published an op-ed in The Washington Post, publicly broadcasting, once again, his disapproval of President Donald Trump. Disappointing, but not surprising. Something seems to compel those in the never-Trump crowd not only to perpetually obsess over Trump but also to constantly remind us of their profound distaste for him -- lest it escape our top-of-mind awareness. A few things popped out at me when I read Romney's piece -- apart from his flagrant hypocrisy in reigniting his public relations campaign against Trump after abandoning it when...

    Okay, was I shocked that Mitt Romney came out with his January 1st OPED in the Washington Post bashing the President? No…I just thought it would have been a few weeks before he went all Jeff Flake 2.0 against the President. Geez Mitt, we don’t need any more surrender monkeys! So Mitt, how do you want us to remember you, Mitt “Benedict Arnold” Romney or Mitt “Neville Chamberlain” Romney…Because right now, most real Americans that watched you run and fail for president don’t see this as your brightest moment, they see this as your bitter sour grapes moment, face...

    Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Wednesday that he hasn't decided whether to endorse President Trump in the 2020 election, but ruled out mounting a primary challenge himself. "I haven’t decided who I’m going to endorse in 2020. I’m going to see what the alternatives are," Romney said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. "I think it’s early to make that decision, and I want to see what the alternatives are," he continued. "I pointed out there are places [Trump and I] agree on a whole series of policy fronts, but there are places that I think the president can,...

    Days before he officially becomes a U.S. senator, Mitt Romney took to the Washington Post to fire a shot across President Trump’s bow, saying Mr. Trump had made a “deep descent” in December and is hurting the national character. In an op-ed column published online Tuesday evening, Mr. Romney, now a Republican senator-elect for Utah, came down hardest on recent moves in foreign policy and Cabinet positions related to that. “After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the...

    Utah Sen.-elect Mitt Romney signaled he may focus on climate change when he's sworn in in January. In a brief interview with E&E News yesterday, the former Republican presidential nominee said he sees climate change as a "critical area." ....snip Last year, Romney told college students in St. Louis that he was "concerned about the anti-scientific attitude" expressed by some of his Republican colleagues and that he was convinced humanity has played a part in global warming (Climatewire, Oct. 3). "I happen to believe that there is climate change, and I think humans contribute to it in a substantial way,...

    Mitt Romney is finally heading to Washington. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee won a seat in the Senate for his adopted home state of Utah in Tuesday's election. "I will be only one of a hundred United States senators, but I believe that one person doing the right thing at the right time can have a lasting impact," Romney said on Election Night. For Romney, it was the right time. In 2012, he waged a hard-fought presidential campaign, complete with an endorsement from then-businessman Donald Trump. After losing to President Barack Obama, Romney stepped out of the public eye. Four...
