Romney slammed Trump over decision to pull troops from Syria

Mitt Romney: Trump's biggest failure is a lack of character in leading 'divided' nation

Sen. -elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Wednesday that President Donald Trump would have to find a "win-win" in order to end the government shutdown the President began by insisting on $5 billion in funds for a border wall.

Mr Trump had not "risen to the mantle", he wrote in the Washington Post.

Asked if he was surprised by her response, Romney said she has a duty to defend the president in her position.

Trump hit back in an early morning tweet on Friday, saying, "Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast!" A president should unite us and inspire us to follow 'our better angels.' A president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect.

Flake was far and away Trump's most consistent critic among Senate Republicans.

"With Republicans like him who needs Democrats?" wrote Williams, who represents the U.S. Virgin Islands.

When the US Congress reconvenes on Thursday, Mr Trump faces a new challenge on the domestic front - in November's mid-terms the Republicans strengthened their hold of the Senate but lost the House of Representatives.

In the article, Romney praised many of Trump's policies, such his tax reforms and appointment of conservative judges, ones he said "mainstream Republicans have promoted for years". With relations warmer, Trump gave Romney's bid for the Senate his "full support and endorsement" a year ago.

One possible voice of dissent could come from Utah Sen. -elect Mitt Romney. Question will be, is he a Flake?

"For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack (Trump) as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive", McDaniel tweeted.

Romney had excoriated Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign as a "fraud" who was "playing the American public for suckers". His op-ed was a shallow political miscalculation and a pathetic attempt to be the center of attention.

Police said they couldn't give further information on where he came from because he wasn't carrying an identity card. Police charged that the suspect had tested positive for cocaine and amphetamines, according to local media reports.

During the Republican primary in 2016, Romney spoke out against Trump and said he didn't have the "temperament" to be president. "I won big, and he didn't".

He said he had hoped the Trump campaign would refrain from name-calling and had not.

In an interview Wednesday, Romney defended his remarks and also said he has not decided who he'll endorse in 2020. "And it is in this province where the incumbent's shortfall has been most glaring", Romney writes in a Washington Post op-ed. The president said Romney "should be happy for all Republicans" and should be "a TEAM player".

Such a move could lead to criticism that the RNC is rigging the election for Trump. Meanwhile, Democratic voters and the media give them too little credit, he said.

"You know what? You should not have taken that endorsement [from Trump] if this is how you felt", he said, referring to Trump's endorsement of Romney during the 2018 election.
