Speaking to the governor of Utah Gary Herbert, President Trump made it clear he has no intentions on making nice with the sole Republican Senator who voted alongside Democrats for his removal.
Breitbart reports President Donald Trump on Monday told the governor of Utah to “keep” the state’s U.S. Senator, Mitt Romney.
President Trump spoke about Romney during a meeting with United States governors on Monday, where he had a lively back-and-forth conversation at the podium.
Speaking to Utah Governor Gary Herbert, Trump asked, “How’s Mitt Romney?”
“I haven’t talked with him,” Herbert replied.
“You keep him, we don’t want him,” Trump said, as many in the room chuckled.
Trump continues to criticize Romney for being the only Republican senator to vote in support of convicting and removing the president in the Senate’s impeachment trial last week.
“Say hello to the people of Utah and tell them, ‘I’m sorry about Mitt Romney,’” Trump told Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) last week during remarks at the White House after he was acquitted.
“We can say that Mike Lee is, by far, the most popular senator from the state,” he added.
Per TCO, Judge Jeanine didn’t hold back during her opening statement Saturday where she blasted Mitt Romney for voting to convict Trump and suggested he “get the hell out of the United States Senate.”
Do you ever wonder why people never mention God or religion — only bring it up when they get caught doing something or when they need an excuse for something they did? What a bunch of phonies.
..Your jealousy of this man [Trump] is a constant rage burning within you because you can never rise to the heights that he has. Because guys like you fold like wusses and you don’t have any selflessness or the ability to think about others, as Donald Trump has thought about making America first.
…How about you get the hell out of the United States Senate? The people in Utah are furious with you, and your dream of endearing yourself to the Trump-hating left is a joke.
