Utah’s incoming senator Mitt Romney came out in favor of President Donald Trump’s border wall after the president and the president’s supporters expressed their extreme displeasure with Romney’s criticism of Trump.
“I would vote for the border wall. That’s been part of my platform for many, many years. I think we should have a border wall on our southern border…That’s necessary but insufficient,” Romney said in his interview Thursday with CNN’s Jake Tapper. (15:55 Mark In Video Below)
President Trump pressured Romney to support border security on Twitter.
Romney declined to endorse Trump for president in 2020 and said that he is waiting to see what the “alternatives” are to Trump, but said that “I am not running again.” He made reference to a potential Republican primary.
Utah’s incoming senator Mitt Romney fills the position that everyone knew he was going to fill: NeverTrump “Republican” that the mainstream media can point to in their attacks on President Donald Trump.
“The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December” said Mitt in a Washington Post op-ed, referring to the fact that President Trump is actually winning on his America First priorities like ending the Never Ending Wars. Romney also said that Trump has not risen to the “mantle” of the presidency.
It’s all annoying nonsense, but it will get the chattering classes excited and the press talking for probably a few straight days.
With Jeff Flake making an unceremonious exit, Romney is now going to be even more insufferable, because the political class wants him to run in 2020, either as a GOP primary challenger to Trump or — get this — as Joe Biden’s running mate on the Democrat side on a Swamp Unity ticket.
I reported on former Jeb! Bush adviser and current Biden Institute adviser Juleanna Glover’s op-ed for Politico in which she argues for a Biden-Romney unity ticket.
The whole thing seems confusing to the American people, because the media hated Mitt Romney in 2012 because they wanted Barack Obama to win. Now, get ready for two years of the media loving Mitt Romney and thinking he’s awesome.
It’s irritating, but this is what the Washington political class does. It is still unclear how much the American people will be forced to actually pay attention to the mainstream media and their celebrated Swamp figures during the 2020 campaign, but we will find out as we go along just how much Trump has weakened this sinister, corrupt infrastructure.

Gov. Ron DeSantis Puts Anti-E-Verify Republicans On Notice
Some Republicans want to water down the proposal.
As a battle over a strong statewide E-Verify law heats up in Tallahassee, Florida Governor Rick DeSantis is cautioning Republicans who seek to neuter the law over the ire they’ll face from conservative voters.
Florida is set to pass a E-Verify law that will prevent businesses from hiring illegal immigrants as workers. Currently in the Florida Senate committee process, big business interests are seeking to institute special exemptions for industries that commonly hire illegals.
DeSantis is pushing back hard against the effort to put free passes in the legislation for the agricultural industry. Another area of contention is over the law’s enforcement mechanism. Elements seeking to neuter the Florida E-Verify system want employers to merely promise they aren’t hiring illegals, as opposed to making them definitively prove it.
DeSantis was clear about warning Republicans who try to neuter the e-Verify proposal when speaking to the press outside of the state capital on Wednesday.

DeSantis’ warning to Republicans who tacitly support giveaways of cheap labor and non-enforcement of immigration law should be taken seriously by any legislator who considers themselves a conservative, and relies upon a conservative constituency.
Senator Tom Lee, who represents Florida’s 20th district, is cautioning that Governor DeSantis could veto the entire bill and force lawmakers to start over if they stuff it full of exemptions for scofflaw big business interests. He says that the effort to make employers merely promise to hire illegals is no different than instituting an impotent “honor system.”
The law currently will mandate that businesses in Florida verify their employees’ legal status by July of 2022.
