U.S. Senate candidate, and former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney has pledged to oppose President Trump if he is elected. This comes after President Trump gave Romney his endorsement, something that many of his supporters were unsure of.

In an op-ed penned for the The Salt Lake Tribune, Romney found his inner liberal, and trashed President Trump while putting himself on a pedestal as an independent voice. Romney stated his opposition to Trump’s decision to leave the globalist transpacific partnership, as well as the President’s “fair trade” belief in tariffs on countries that are ripping off America.
Romney even expended an entire paragraph to virtue signal and race-bait, stating that he will oppose Trump every time he “does something which is divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions.” The entire paragraph sounded like something you would find on Bernie Sander’s political literature, not in an op-ed penned by a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate.
This condemnation of Trump comes just months after Romney accepted Donald Trump’s endorsement graciously. Romney’s acceptance, and graciousness over Trump’s endorsment was almost certainly all politically motivated. At the time, Romney had just announced, but now Romney gaining the Republican nomination is almost certain. In his primary election, which is held tomorrow, Romney currently has over a 40 point advantage in recent polls conducted.
Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah.

There is little chance that Romney was actually genuine when he thanked Trump. He refused to even mention the president’s name.
Mitt Romney was one of the loudest anti-Trump voices during the 2016 election, calling the then-Presidential candidate a “phony” and a “fraud,” among other things. Romney even went so far as to allude toward Trump being racist in a Tweet where he said he would not have accepted his endorsement in 2012, when he ran for President, had Trump said similar things as he did on the campaign trail.
If Trump had said 4 years ago the things he says today about the KKK, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled, I would NOT have accepted his endorsement

It shouldn’t be surprising to anybody that Romney is acting like a whiny liberal in his opposition to Trump. As Governor of Massachusetts, despite being a Republican, Romney governed like a Democrat. He was pro-choice, pro-gun control, and pro-socialized medicine among other things. So if you look at records, and how much Romney has flipped, one could say that he is the “phony,” and “fraud.”

WATCH: Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez Slams Israel, Forced to Admit She’s Clueless
A socialist candidate for U.S. Congress from New York looked foolish during a PBS interview in which she was forced to admit that she is clueless regarding the conflict between Arabs and Israelis.
“I also think that what people are starting to see in the occupation of Palestine is just an increasing crisis of humanitarian condition,” said Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “And that, to me, is just where I tend to come from on this issue.”
Kudos to the interviewer, who continued to push regarding Ocasio-Cortez’s use of the term “occupation of Palestine,” one rarely used outside of small circles of white liberals on college campuses.
“Oh, um… I think what I meant is, like, the settlements that are increasing in some of these areas, in places where, um, Palestinians are experiencing, um, difficulty and access to their housing and homes,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
When asked to expound a bit more, and Ocasio-Cortez threw in the towel.
“Yeah, I think I’d also just… I’m not the expert on geopolitics on this issue,” she said.
Ocasio-Cortez ended the cringeworthy segment back where she started, with the general policy proposal of a “two state solution” to the conflict.
With her lack of expertise, she should fit right in in Congress.
