Donald Trump and Mitt Romney have famously feuded for years.
The former President is getting the last laugh.
And Donald Trump uttered two words that caused Mitt Romney to turn red with rage.
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has been a thorn in the side of conservatives for years.
His days of tormenting conservatives as an elected official are coming to an end after he announced his retirement from the Senate.
Former President Donald Trump took credit for Romney throwing in the towel on his political career.
He said he was “very proud” of his role in Romney’s retirement and called him a “total loser that only a mother could love” on social media.
Trump referenced Romney’s upcoming book Romney: A Reckoning, which he called “crummy.”
“I am very proud to be the one who forced this Left Leaning RINO out of politics,” Trump’s post read. “He wanted to run sooo badly, but knew he couldn’t win in the great State of Utah without my Endorsement and Support, so he QUIT. His crummy book says nothing good about anybody, other than RINO Paul RINO, who may be worse, and even dumber, than Mitt himself.”
Trump referenced a late-night dinner with Romney where the failed 2012 Presidential candidate reportedly pitched himself for Secretary of State before his first term.
“Does he mention his late-night dinner with me at Trump International Hotel when he begged to be Secretary of State, then giving GLOWING COMMENTS about DJT at a follow-up News Conference?” Trump added. “I didn’t give him the job, NOR DID I EVER INTEND TO. I JUST WANTED TO PROVE A POINT, THAT MITT ROMNEY IS, & ALWAYS HAS BEEN, A LIGHTWEIGHT JOKE!”
Trump’s comments come after Romney attacked him again during an interview on CBS News’ Sunday Morning.
“Donald Trump represents a failure of character, which is changing, I think, in many respects, the psyche of our nation and the heart of our nation,” Romney whined.
Romney weighed running for another term but was already facing a spirited Primary challenger.
He likely faced the same fate as RINO Liz Cheney who was trounced last year in the GOP Primary for Wyoming’s lone Congressional seat by 37 points against a Trump-backed challenger.
The Utah lawmaker took many potshots at Trump over the years but the former President came out on top.
Mitt Romney is leaving elected office in disgrace while Donald Trump is on track to win the Republican presidential nomination again.
