Rhino Romney Backs Down From Running Against Trump, Makes a 2020 Prediction On Who Will Win
After some speculation and even the Senator toying with the idea, Mitt Romney, the massive rhino, decided to publically denounce running against Trump in 2020. It isn't a surprise. Most people who did vote for him during his last run have vowed to never support him again.
Romney has slammed Republicans, especially Trump, in the past and challenged the President's character. Even after Trump endorsed him in his bid for Utah.
“There is no circumstance I can conceive of, where I would run for national office,” the former Republican presidential candidate said while answering questions on a roundtable discussion on vaping in Salt Lake City, Utah, according to local news outlet KUTV.
He then said that Trump will secure the GOP nomination and get reelected in 2020.
Romney, a Republican critic of Trump, also said he isn’t concerned about any criticism that Trump made against him.
“My job is to try and represent the people of the state as well as I can,” he said. “Generally, I’m with the president on policy.”
Romney noted that he votes with Trump about 80 percent of the time. “So, I agree with him most of the time,” he added.

President Donald Trump on Saturday called U.S. Senator Mitt Romney a “pompous ass” after his sharp critique of the president’s push for other nations to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democratic political rival.
“Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous ‘ass’ who has been fighting me from the beginning,” Trump wrote of his fellow Republican on Twitter.
Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous “ass” who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!

At least Romney wised up and didn't embarrass himself, and what supporters he may have left, farther by running against Trump. Back in 2016 he called Trump a 'con man'labeling Trump as unfit to be president and warned that his proposed policies would be detrimental to the country.
"Let me put it plainly if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished," Romney added. Ironically, that speach was given in Utah. The very state that Trump would help him win a senate seat in.
