‘I won big and he didn’t!’ Trump fires back at Mitt Romney and tells him to ‘be helpful’

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday hit back at incoming Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) for his scathing Washington Post op-ed in which he slammed the president’s moral character.

“Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast!” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not.”

After making an unflattering comparison between Romney and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Trump told Romney to stop attacking him and “be helpful” to his presidency.

“Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful,” Trump wrote. “I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!”

In his op-ed, which dropped on Tuesday night, Romney said the Trump White House underwent a “deep descent” in December and vowed to speak out against the president when necessary.

“His conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office,” Romney wrote. “It is not that all of the president’s policies have been misguided… But policies and appointments are only a part of a presidency.”

Trump’s unhinged fans get even more detached from reality as his chances fade

Published

on

A pandemic is spiraling out of control and Donald Trump's reaction is to roll his eyes and say, "It is what it is." Unsurprisingly, polling data shows that his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, is pulling ahead, not just in national polls, but in a number of battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan and Florida, none of which Trump can afford to lose. After all, the incumbent has nothing real to run on. The economy is the worst it's been since the Great Depression of the 1930s, Americans are losing health insurance by the millions, and Republicans are responding by trying to shortchange unemployment benefits for the millions of people who've lost their jobs.

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he might deliver his Republican National Convention speech from the White House. But legal experts who spoke with Bloomberg warned that might not be a good idea.

The publication described the proposal as "a minefield of problems for the staff charged with putting such an event together."
