Yesterday, President Trump shot back at the failed presidential candidate, Mitt Romney following his scathing, anti-Trump, op-ed in the Washington Post. President Trump won the presidential election in 2016, in spite of Mitt Romney’s best efforts to destroy his chances. To his credit, in 2018, President Trump rose above Mitt Romney’s petty sniping against him in 2016 and came out in full support of Romney’s US Senate campaign. The freshman Senator handily won a seat in the November election, in the Mormon stronghold state of Utah.
In his op-ed, Romney wrote:
As a nation, we have been blessed with presidents who have called on the greatness of the American spirit.
During his presidency, Barack Obama made no secret of his disdain for America and for the history of our nation. During his campaign, his wife, Michelle claimed it was the first time she was proud of our nation. During a commencement speech at the historically black Tuskegee University, the former first lady bemoaned being forced to live a the White House, a house that was “built by slaves.”
With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable.
Even the New York Times called out Barack Obama for creating a massive divide in our nation:
Sixty-nine percent of Americans say race relations are generally bad, one of the highest levels of discord since the 1992 riots in Los Angeles during the Rodney King case, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.
The poll, conducted from Friday, the day after the killing of five Dallas police officers, until Tuesday, found that six in 10 Americans say race relations were growing worse, up from 38 percent a year ago.
Racial discontent is at its highest point in the Obama presidency and at the same level as after the riots touched off by the 1992 acquittal of Los Angeles police officers charged in Mr. King’s beating.
Relations between black Americans and the police have become so brittle that more than half of black people say they were not surprised by the attack that killed five police officers and wounded nine others in Dallas last week. Nearly half of white Americans say that they, too, were unsurprised by the episode, the survey found.
President Trump has made real progress in erasing the hate-filled, anti-cop sentiment that permeated much of President Obama’s divisive eight years in office.
On May 16, 2018, during a deeply emotional moment, Trump invited the family of the single mother, and slain NYPD officer Miosotis Familia, to the stage while he addressed the 37th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol Building. Officer Familia’s 90-year-old grandmother embraced President Trump and thanked him for his beautiful tribute to her murdered granddaughter.
The media completely ignored the enormous strides President Trump made in a relatively short amount of time to restore the honor and respect of law enforcement officers across America that had been lost under a divisive President Obama.
Finally, Mitt Romney, the failed presidential candidate wrote:
And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring.
Really, Mitt? How about losing the sour grapes, and sticking to the facts?
President Trump, who endorsed Mitt Romney during his failed campaign to defeat President Obama, shot back at Romney in other useless RINO’s, who cling to a do-nothing attitude that’s allowed Democrats to get us into the mess America finds itself in today. Trump tweeted:
Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake? I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!
Fox News’ Brit Hume, destroyed Mitt Romney with this blistering tweet, reminding everyone of how Mitt Romney gladly accepted President Trump’s support during his Senate campaign in Utah, then turned on him after the election, with his “nasty piece” about Trump in the Washington Post.
Because nothing is more appealing to Republican voters than a guy who is happy to have Trump’s support in the campaign, then turns on Trump after the election and writes a nasty piece about him for the Washington Post. https://t.co/pFt8rv29m3

But it was Mitt Romney’s niece, Ronna Romney-McDaniel, RNC Chair, and daughter of Mitt’s older brother Scott Romney and his first wife, Ronna Romney, whose tweet that slammed her “freshman Senator” uncle, that’s getting a lot of attention. Ronna Romney-McDaniels, who dropped “Romney” after she was tapped to replace Reince Priebus as the next RNC Chair. She gained national attention when she was the Republican Party Chair in Michigan, and came out in full support of Donald J.Trump, while her uncle Mitt was going out of his way to oppose his presidency.
Trump loyalist, Romney-McDaniel slammed Uncle Mitt with this tweet:
POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack
@realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive.

Ouch! Calling out your “freshman senator” Republican uncle’s first act in office for feeding into the Democrats and the anti-Trump propaganda media’s narrative…priceless.
