Trump and Romney friends again - on Twitter

Reuters

President Donald Trump has apparently endorsed one-time adversary and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney as Romney runs for Senate in Utah to replace Sen.

In a tweet Monday night, Trump wrote, "Mitt Romney has announced he is running for the Senate from the wonderful State of Utah". Trump wrote Monday evening that Romney "will make a great Senator and worthy successor" to the retiring Orrin Hatch.

Romney, a wealthy businessman, ex-governor of MA and the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, announced last week he is running for a US Senate seat in Utah.

In an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune Anderson stated, "I think he's keeping out candidates that I think would be a better fit for Utah because, let's face it, Mitt Romney doesn't live here, his kids weren't born here, he doesn't shop here".

One asked where he stands on President Trump, to which Romney responded that he was generally with the president on policy, but not much else.

Romney, who grew up in MI and was governor of MA from to 2003-2007, has a home in Utah, and is a Mormon like approximately 55% of the state's residents.

Mitt Romney famously slammed Trump as a phony and a fraud during a 2016 speech. He has slammed Romney as a "two-time failed candidate", one of the "dumbest and worst candidates in the history of Republican politics" and a "mixed up man".

In his announcement, Romney made a veiled critique of the President's tone on immigration. "I think that's going to be a problem".

"He will unquestionably be an adversary of President Trump and the kind of things he wants to do", Camenker asserts. "Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion".

Further, reports late last year indicated that Trump was pressing the 83-year-old Hatch to seek an eighth term to shut out Romney. But if voters or party insiders are looking for Romney to become the next Jeff Flake - the Arizona Republican who regularly criticizes Trump - "they should stop", she said.

Others said they expect Romney to embrace numerous traditional GOP policies that Trump has pushed in office, including the GOP tax bill and the rollback of federal regulations. "I think in that case you might as well have a Democrat - well, not quite, but nearly".
