Mitt Romney holds a grudge against President Trump. Trump plays a tough brand of politics and calls out the problem we face in strong terms.
The biggest problem we have, as Trump pointed out, is guys like Mitt Romney. Look, the college cheating scandal laid bare the elite establishment for all to see.
Quite simply, they believe the rules do not apply to them and they deserve special treatment.
Mitt is a perfect example - he doesn’t even live or he sure as heck didn’t live in Utah. His family is from Michigan, he lives on the east coast, but he believes that losing an election gives him the right to parachute into Utah and take a Senate seat?
Mitt carpetbags in with a boatload of his ill-gotten gains (check out what his former company Bain did to the American worker some time) and expects to be Utah Senator is entitlement at its worst.
It is that sense of entitlement that is destroying America - remember Mitt is also entitled to cheap labor from illegal immigrants because, of course, he would never clean his own house and he doesn’t want to pay real wages for an American t do it.
So it comes as no surprise that Mitt is just fine with our terrible immigration system that benefits him and his wealthy friends at our expense.
From The Hill:
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Thursday that he will oppose President Trump’s emergency declaration to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“I will today vote for the resolution of disapproval. This is a vote for the constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core,” Romney said in a statement.
Romney is the sixth Republican senator to say he will vote for the resolution of disapproval, which is getting a vote in the Senate later Thursday.
In addition to Romney, Sens. Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Thom Tillis (R-N.C.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.) had already announced they would support the resolution. Shortly after Romney made his announcement, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) became the seventh Republican to say they will vote to block Trump’s resolution.
Underscoring the quagmire Republicans have tried to navigate on Trump’s emergency declaration, Romney stressed that he supported Trump on border security but had concerns that his emergency declaration would set a precedent for a future Democratic president.
“I am seriously concerned that overreach by the executive branch is an invitation for further expansion and abuse by future presidents. …Where Congress has enacted a specific policy to consent to an emergency declaration would be both inconsistent with my beliefs and contrary to my oath to defend the Constitution,” Romney added.
With all 47 Democrats expected to support the resolution of disapproval, it has the votes to pass the Senate and force a showdown with Trump, who has pledged he will veto it.
