Mitt Romney’s attack on Donald Trump outraged conservatives.
They saw it as an extreme act of disloyalty.
But then Tucker Carlson dropped the hammer on Romney and sent him running for his life.
Romney attacked Trump in his Washington Post op-ed because of Trump’s “character.”
The former failed Presidential candidate also laid into Trump for daring to question the globalist consensus in Washington, D.C. that foreign wars are always good and open borders make us stronger.
Carlson tore into this mindset as being symbolic of the ruling class being divorced from the country class.
Breitbart reports him saying:
“Mitt Romney refers to unwavering support for a finance-based economy and an internationalist foreign policy as the “mainstream Republican” view. He’s right. For generations, Republicans have considered it their duty to make the world safe for banking, while simultaneously prosecuting ever more foreign wars. Modern Democrats generally support these goals. There are signs, however, that most people do not support this, and not just in America. In countries around the world — France, Brazil, Sweden, the Philippines, Germany, and many others — voters are suddenly backing candidates and ideas that would have been unimaginable just a decade ago. These are not isolated events. What you’re watching is populations revolting against leaders who refuse to improve their live”
Romney’s op-ed backfired.
It united Republicans behind Trump.
The only support Romney found was among Democrats, the fake news media, and Never Trump RINOs.
That’s because Carlson highlighted a growing sentiment in the GOP base that establishment Republicans like Romney lie to them every election season for their vote, and then go to Washington to advance an agenda that works against the American people’s interests.
Trump won because he challenged the bi-partisan consensus in the swamp that endless wars, free trade deals, and immigration are all benefits to America.
