Trump has a massive approval rating among GOP voters yet Romney continues to act as if he is the one who should lead the GOP.
Now, Trump has two primary challenges right now – Bill Weld and Mark Sanford. Neither has a chance in hell of beating Trump for the Republican nomination, and that was before the GOP in some states refused to even hold a primary.
Many states do this with an incumbent – certain Dem states did the same with Obama so it is not unprecedented.
But what is unprecedented is Mitt Romney working behind the scenes to sink Trump. Now, this report comes from a very reliable source who has scooped the mainstream media numerous times.
Jack Posobiec is a host for OANN and is very tight with Trump insiders. Do not discount this report as Jack has been eerily correct in the past.
From The Gateway Pundit:
Mitt Romney has become an expert at lobbing bombs at President Trump from the sidelines.
Now there is rumors that Mitt Romney may take on President Trump in the Republican primary.
According to HotAir:
Romney has re-emerged, as he does occasionally, to be the self-appointed voice of morality. He slammed President Trump’s behavior during the phone call to Ukraine’s President Zelensky as “wrong and appalling”.
…While Romney is clutching his pearls over Trump’s phone call, I haven’t seen a tweet criticizing Rep. Adam Schiff for lying about contact with the whistleblower who filed the complaint that opened up the investigation into the phone call. Even the Washington Post gave that four Pinocchios. That’s the problem with Romney – he’s too busy criticizing a Republican president to criticize Democrats. He was the first one out of the gate to jab at Trump on Twitter. Romney knew it would get a response.
There was some chatter that Romney is quietly taking the pulse of GOP donors.
Look, Mitt is a political opportunist and there was a credible report that he had spoken to Nancy Pelosi and said the votes for a Trump conviction in the Seate could be there if she gets the Dems to actually impeach.
Mitt has never gotten over losing a winnable race to Obama and he may very well see blood in the water and could be trying to make a move here.
Also, the Koch brothers network is said to be sitting out the 2020 election and Mitt has deep ties to them.
