Trump says Romney ought to be 'team player'

But this is where Trump, and therefore America, is falling down, Romney claims.

In his first Cabinet meeting of 2019, US President Donald Trump reflected on his lack of popularity in Europe. "I think he made a severe error in saying what he did about Mexican-Americans", Romney said, reported CNN.

The New York Times even said much of the essay "sounded like the makings of a primary challenge against Mr. Trump from Mr. Romney". (Romney did, however, get a larger percentage of the national popular vote in 2012, at 47.2 percent, than Trump did in 2016, with 46.1 percent.) Paul wrote off Romney in general as standing for a sort of "establishment big government Republicanism" that is "not popular enough to win a general election". "He should be happy for all Republicans", Trump wrote, offering this advice to Romney: "Be a TEAM player & WIN!"

Flake was far and away Trump's most consistent critic among Senate Republicans. Bob Coker, R-Tenn., another retiring senator, left off.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday hit back at incoming Sen. "I don't think he has a real moral center", Hostin added. Says Romney shouldn't have attacked him. In one speech, he said there was plenty of evidence that Trump was "a con man, a fake". The senator said it was more important for colleagues to look at what they have in common with Trump.

"You know what? You should not have taken that endorsement [from Trump] if this is how you felt", he said, referring to Trump's endorsement of Romney during the 2018 election. Trump picked former Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson, who lasted about 14 months before Trump fired him.

Romney should correct his mistake and call the president to offer his opinion on how to end the shutdown and secure our border. Most voters in the state - 64 per cent - would like to see the senator confront the president, according to data from AP VoteCast, a survey of midterm voters. But his criticism of Trump was far more muted and in February, Trump endorsed Romney. The stock market tumbled in December.

The most notable rebuke came when former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis stepped down from his post, citing in his resignation letter that he differed with the president on the issue of "treating allies with respect".

McDaniel, a MI political operative and daughter of Romney's older brother Scott, used to go by her full name - Ronna Romney McDaniel - professionally, but stopped using her maiden name upon becoming the RNC chair following the 2016 election. There is no point to this op-ed.

"With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable", Romney wrote in the op-ed piece in The Washington Post on Tuesday.

Some have praised Mr Romney, others said he should have gone further.

Trump and Romney have a complicated history. Like many of you, I have been frustrated by the inability to get Republicans nominated to USA attorney, US marshal, and District Court judgeships. "He's playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat".
