Romney: Trump’s vision ‘connects with the American people’

Makes Statement

Romney addresses the press after his dinner with Trump and Reince Priebus.

We had a discussion about affairs throughout the world. These discussions I’ve had with him have been enlightening, interesting, and engaging. I’ve enjoyed them very much..I was also very impressed by the remarks he made on his victory night. By the way, it’s not easy to win. I know that myself. He did something I tried to do and was unsuccessful in accomplishing. he won the general election. And he continues with a message of inclusion and bringing people together. His vision is something that connects with the American people in a very powerful way…The people he has selected for his cabinet are solid, very effective people…I happen to think that America’s best days are ahead of us…and what I’ve seen with these discussions with President-elect Trump, give me increasing hope that President-elect Trump is the very man who can lead us to that better future.

Trump, Romney meet


Trump and Romney meet at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ. Romney shakes hands with the president-elect as he greets him at the door of the clubhouse:

Mr. president-elect how are you sir?

Trump gave the same response as both grip each other’s arms. Romney then shakes hands with Vice President-elect Pence and pats him on the back as the threesome walk into the clubhouse together. said that he and Trump exchanged views and that he looks forward to the new administration:

[We had a] very thorough and in-depth discussion [regarding] the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States of real significance.


It went great.

Romney was ‘begging for my endorsement’

Makes Statement

Trump responds to Romney’s speech at an event in Portland, Maine.

That was a race that should have been won…Mitt is a failed candidate…He failed horribly…You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement… I could have said Mitt, drop to your knees, he would have dropped to his knees…Mitt is indeed a choke artist. He choked like I’ve never seen anyone choke. Other than Rubio.

Says GOP should not nominate Trump

Gives Talk

Speaking at the Hinckley Institute at the University of Utah, Romney calls Trump “phony” and a “fraud” whose “third-grade theatrics” threaten the future of the Republican party.

I’m not here to announce my candidacy for office, and I’m not here to endorse a candidate today. I believe with all my heart and soul that we face another time for choosing, one that will have profound consequences for the Republican Party. [If we nominate Trump] the prospect for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished. [If he is elected] the country would sink into prolonged recession…Whatever happened to Trump Airlines? How about Trump University? And then there’s Trump Magazine, and Trump Vodka, and Trump Steaks! Successfully bringing jobs home requires serious policies and reforms… you can’t punish business into doing what you want.

Responds to Romney’s Trump criticism

Makes Statement

Palin defends Trump against Romney on Facebook:

The “machine’s” deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isn’t really an attack on the candidate, it’s an attack on conscientious, hardworking, patriotic Americans who know we need a revolution to stop the complicit politicians who are fundamentally transforming America. We found the revolutionary…Donald Trump is the shock the Permanent Political Class needs to wake them up… to destroy their selfish cabal… to respect the will of the people… to make America safe and solvent… to make America great again. Don’t take the bait, Mr. Trump. It’s not about you. It’s about us. And we’ve got your back.
