Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney backstabbed President Donald Trump again this week and formed a political alliance with a top Democrat to go after the president.
The Daily Beast reports that Romney held a secret meeting former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid — and they discussed how to get rid of Trump.
While speaking with The Daily Beast, Reid lamented that he was “pretty damn worried” about Trump winning re-election in 2020.
Reid has also reportedly been reaching out to certain congressional Republicans in an attempt to persuade them to publicly rebuke Trump.
So it’s not too surprising he went to Romney, one of the most notorious Never-Trumpers in Congress, to discuss how they can dump POTUS.
“I’ve never known a human being in a position of prominence that you can do nothing to damage his ego in any way,” he said. “It is absolutely unbelievable.”
Reid said they “both acknowledged that we had gone a little too far” in attacking each other during the 2012 presidential election.
Now that Reid needs help bringing down Trump, he sings Romney’s praises.
“I think he’s one of the best things come out of Utah in a long time,” he said. “I think that he’s a good person.”
“He’s one of the few people speaks out—not all the time—but against Trump,” Reid said.
Sadly, Romney has a long history of going after the president.
Last month, Romney claimed that Trump “failed his duty” to unite Americans as president.
While speaking with a local news reporter, Romney was asked about Trump’s tweets in which he suggested the four radical Democratic congresswomen — Democratic Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley — go back to their countries of origin if they hate the United States so much.
Speaking to reporters, Romney did not directly say if thought the tweet is racist but said it was “very wrong.”
“A lot of people have been using the word. My own view is that what was said and what was tweeted was destructive, was demeaning, was disunifying and frankly was very wrong,” Romney said.
In May, Romney said he may decline to support Trump for president in 2020, explaining, “I wouldn’t be surprised if I stay out of the endorsements.”
“I don’t think endorsements are worth a thimble of spit,” Romney said.
Last month, Romney was the only Republican senator to vote against a judge nominated by Trump to a powerful federal court.
Romney did so in part to defend the former president because the judge had previously made disparaging comments about Barack Obama.
Before that, Romney joined his Democratic comrades and claimed that he was “sickened” by the findings in the Mueller report, which completely vindicated the president.
In January, on the same day that he was sworn into office, Romney published an op-ed attacking Trump.
Throughout the hit piece, Romney claimed that Trump’s presidency made a “deep descent” and alleged that he “has not risen to the mantle of the office.”
At some point, certain Republicans may want to consider switching parties. Romney would be one of those people.
