RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel Rebukes Uncle Mitt Romney for Criticizing President Trump

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

"Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful", Trump tweeted. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the occasion. "He should be happy for all Republicans", Trump wrote, offering this advice to Romney: "Be a TEAM player & WIN!"

"I wish Mitt could be more of a team player".

Romney claimed this all highlighted "a deep descent" for the Trump presidency.

ABC News" "The View' co-host Joy Behar has regained some cultural currency during the Trump administration with her constant commentary aimed at the president and members of his inner circle. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who often criticized Trump and paid the price, opting to retire rather than risk defeat in a GOP primary.

While praising Trump's early appointments, Romney lamented that Trump's 2016 campaign came down to "resentment and name-calling". Like Romney, Flake became a Democrat favorite for his anti-Trump rhetoric.

Romney penned the op-ed just days before he is set to be sworn into the Senate.

"The appointment of senior persons of lesser experience, the abandonment of allies who fight beside us, and the president's thoughtless claim that America has always been a "sucker" in world affairs all defined his presidency down", he wrote.

To a great degree, a presidency shapes the public character of the nation.

But he went on to say: "With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable". "The world needs American leadership", Romney wrote, "and it is in America's interest to provide it". Trump's words and actions, he writes, have caused worldwide dismay. "A world led by authoritarian regimes is a world - and an America - with less prosperity, less freedom, less peace". (This, after seeking Trump's endorsement for the Senate in Utah, and treating with Trump in 2016 to be secretary of state.) The piece has that "more-in-sorrow-than-anger" tone that Trump's crude manners are unbecoming of a president, and may degrade our democratic culture.

Romney is quick to point out that he supported Trump making the rich richer through tax cuts and he loves the dismantling of regulations at the expense of consumers and the environment. Trump retorted by calling Romney "a choke artist" for losing to Barack Obama. These are policies mainstream Republicans have promoted for years.

But in a series of tweets, conservative political analyst Bill Kristol described Romney as the leader of the Republican resistance to Trump, and that his op-ed is indicative that Trump's dominance over the Republican Party can no longer be taken for granted.

"Mitt is tough, he's smart, he's sharp, he's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love", Trump said at the time.
