Romney praises Trump's first year in office: It's similar to things 'I'd have done'
BY JOHN BOWDEN - 05/01/18 09:38 AM EDT 420

Former GOP presidential nominee and current Senate candidate Mitt Romney praised President Trump's first year in office on Tuesday, saying it was similar to what the first year of a Romney administration would look like.

In response to a question from a voter in Utah, Romney seemed to indicate that he largely approved of the policies pursued by the Trump administration during Trump's first year in the White House, calling it "better than expected," the Washington Examiner reports.

“His first year is very similar to things I’d have done my first year,” Romney said. "The things he’s actually done have been better than I expected.”

Romney quickly added, however, that he would continue to oppose the president if he said something the former Massachusetts governor viewed as "racist" or "divisive."

Mitt Romney

@MittRomney
Robert Jeffress says “you can’t be saved by being a Jew,“ and “Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.” He’s said the same about Islam. Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.

After the first sentence I thought he was playing to his Mormon base. The second sentence seems to equate Mormonism with Islam. ;)

There is something highly disturbing about Mitt Romney. He just lusts for political power, any amount he can get in any damn way. I swear he would run for dogcatcher of some backwoods county if he couldn't get elected to any higher office.
