Is Mitt Romney about to run for president if Trump is impeached?

Published

on

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) sat down with Axios for their HBO show Sunday and seemed incredibly moderate for a Utah senator.

Axios asked Romney about President Donald Trump’s issues with non-white people, which Romney agreed seemed to be a problem.

“The places where I would be most critical of the president would be in matters that were divisive, that appeared to be appealing to racism or misogyny,” said Romney. “And those are the kinds of things I think that have been most, most harmful long term to the foundation of America’s virtuous character.”

When it came to Trump’s personal life, Romney couldn’t help but seem innocent when he expressed faithfulness to one’s spouse.

“He has elements, I’m sure, of honor in his life,” he said. “And there’s things that I think are not honorable. And I mention that because of the payment to a porn star for sexual relations outside of marriage. Look, I’m one of those who believes that we have a responsibility to be honorable and faithful to our wives.”

Trump’s character has been one thing Evangelical Christians proclaim is honorable, but those who know Trump’s history debate the claims.

“People will recognize that character really is important in our leaders and that it’s important for our leaders to do things that unify us, that welcome people who come here legally as immigrants, that in no way signal to anybody in America that they’re less of an American because of where they came from or their sexual orientation or their race or their religion,” said Romney.

Romney also said that the president should refrain from asking foreign countries for assistance in his 2020 reelection, reminding him that it is illegal.

It’s rare for Romney to be heard promoting LGBTQ equality and denouncing misogyny, such moderation could be an indication that he’s pondering a run for president in the event Trump is impeached.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) took a shot at President Donald Trump on Sunday morning after the president tried to blame him for the leak describing a classified meeting lawmakers had with an intelligence official who warned the bipartisan group that the Kremlin is trying to help the president get re-elected.

As the president prepared to leave the White House for India, he told reporters that Schiff was to blame for the leaked meeting story, with the president insisting he personally had not been briefed on the report explosive report.

Responding to a 'Meet the Press" clip of the president making his accusation, Schiff tweeted back: "Nice deflection, Mr. President. But your false claims fool no one. You welcomed Russian help in 2016, tried to coerce Ukraine’s help in 2019, and won’t protect our elections in 2020. Now you fired your intel chief for briefing Congress about it. You’ve betrayed America. Again."

George Conway taunts Republican voters for sticking by ‘psycho buffoon’ Trump

Published

Conservative attorney George Conway launched a mini-tweet storm on Sunday morning just as President Donald Trump was leaving the country for a visit to India, telling Republican voters that they didn't have to settle for him being their candidate in 2016.

Along the way, he described the president as "a psycho and a buffoon."

In the series of tweets, Conway -- the husband of Trump White House adviser Kellyanne Conway -- noted that a more mainstream candidate could have won in 2016, writing, "Some perspective for supporters of @realDonaldTrump: A stable and competent GOP candidate would have won the popular vote in 2016, perhaps even by a few percentage points; a stable and competent GOP president, having inherited such a strong economy and goosed it with massive deficit spending, would have approval ratings of at least 55%."

Many Democrats are completely fixated on getting Donald Trump out of the Oval Office, no matter what it takes (or which Democratic presidential candidate). While that's certainly an important and obvious goal, the political stakes in 2020 are far, far greater than that.
