WATCH: Romney says “no evidence” election was stolen “I thought I was going to win too when I ran for president in 2012”

Appearing with Shep Smith on CNBC while wearing a black mask, Utah Senator Mitt Romney said there’s “no evidence” the election was stolen and it’s his “biggest concern” that people think it was.

Former Fox News anchor Shepard Smith asked Romney “How much damage is the president doing to democracy trying to overturn the will of the people?”

“The biggest concern that I have is that people here genuinely believe that somehow this election was stolen, and there’s not evidence of that,” Romney replied.

“The president was saying it was stolen even before election day happened!” he continued. “He said if he loses, it would be fraud. Well, no one knows that, I thought I was going to win too when I ran for president in 2012. I didn’t. I didn’t go out and say fraud. We have a process. We count the votes. That’s the way it is.”

“I’m concerned that the cause of democracy here as well as around the world — people look to us. We’re the democratic leader of the world. What’s going on now, I’m afraid, is terribly dispiriting to people all around the globe,” he added.
