Trump Responds To Mitt Romney’s Attack: “Couldn’t be elected dog catcher right now in Utah”

“Utah, the home of our worst senator, that’s Mitt Romney,” Trump told a crowd yesterday. “Romney couldn’t be elected dog catcher right now in Utah,” he added.

“When they do that, that’s personal 196 to think, they stuck with us and so did the Senate, besides Romney, you can have Romney he gave me a half a vote,” Trump said.

“That was Romney, what a beaut.” The president also hit Romney for his Black lives matter stunt.

“Tremendous sincerity, what a guy. Hard to believe, with this kind of political talent, his numbers would “tank” so badly in Utah!,” Trump said at the time.

Yesterday Trump doubled down, “Remember when he was walking with the Black Lives Matter protesters saying ‘I’m a member of Black Lives Matter’ he had a lot of mask on, I’ll tell you that.”

Romney trashed Trump over his recent comments going so far as to say Trump is inflaming tensions.

From The Hill:

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) accused President Trump of attempting to “further inflame racial tensions” with his response to unrest in American cities.

“The comments and tweets over the past few days, including a retweet of a 2019 video clearly intended to further inflame racial tensions, are simply jaw-dropping,” Romney told The New York Times.

The video in question, which Trump retweeted, shows a Black man shoving a white woman into a New York subway train in 2019.

The tweet falsely claims the assault was the work of “Black Lives Matter/Antifa.”

Romney was the only Republican senator to talk about the president’s comments and tweets in recent days when asked by the Times.

Other unsubstantiated or inflammatory comments have included Trump’s claim that Democratic nominee Joe Biden is controlled by “people that you’ve never heard of, people that are in the dark shadows” and his suggestion that police, such as those who shot Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wis., “choke, just like in a golf tournament.”
