Sen. Mitt Romney has unequivocally ruled out supporting 45th President Donald Trump’s third bid for the White House, even if the former president secures the Republican Party’s nomination.
The establishment U.S. Senator from Utah, who once sought Trump’s support in his failed bid failed to oust 44th President Barack Obama from the White House in 2012, made the remarks during a climate change event in Washington, D.C.
“Absolutely not,” Romney said, according to The Washington Examiner. He then touted his impeachment record, telling attendees, “Look, I voted to remove him from office twice.”
Claiming that “he loses,” Romney added that Trump is “not a person who ought to have the reigns of the government of the United States.”
Despite his refusal to support Trump – potentially abandoning the Republican Party’s presidential ticket come November of 2024 – Romney acknowledged the low odds that another candidate could win against him, the outlet noted.
Watch the clip on Spreely.video:
Trump continues to dominate most polls of Republican primary voters, though one poll taken immediately after the party’s mediocre midterm performance showed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis beating Trump.
Virtually all polls taken since Trump formally announced his candidacy, however, have showed the 76-year-old ahead by overwhelming margins.
Though Romney has positioned himself as a staunch public enemy of Trump, he nevertheless keeps company with many of Trump’s supposed allies.
In September, I reported that Romney was part of a group of senators – led by Trump ally Sen. Lindsey Graham – who sought to reverse the former president’s promise to pardon the January 6 prisoners if reelected in 2024.
While most of this small, establishment coalition sought to sway Trump diplomatically, Romney used used the media to bludgeon the idea.
January 6 “was an attack on the temple of Democracy,” declared Romney, before asserting that the January 6 defendants “should be prosecuted according to the law, and certainly not pardoned.”
Romney characterized Trump’s promise as “a grossly inappropriate comment to make.”

Compared to what we have now, Trump was the peoples president. Romney has been a failure all is life.
January 9, 2023 at 10:47 am
Obviously you don’t know Mitt Romney personally. He is a high character gentleman.
January 9, 2023 at 6:35 am
Has Romney ever done what’s best for our country?
His Mormon friends keep voting for him but the rest of us are ready for him to retire and never be heard from again.

The people in Utah should think about voting this P.O.S out of office.
December 12, 2022 at 9:50 pm
The people in Utah would vote for a Rino Monkey if it were a Mormon. The quality of the candidate does not matter to them. Romney is a Carpetbagger and they don’t care.
December 18, 2022 at 6:50 pm
Totally agree and I saw evil in his eyes many times in his interviews the man is a truly evil SOB!
Says he is a Mormon but I know he is a Satanic Devil!

Mitt Romney is one reason I WILL NEVER AGAIN VOTE FOR A REPUBLICAN.
If the Republicans can’t rid themselves of Democrat TRASH like Romney, then I AM THROUGH WITH THE REPUBLICANS.
December 19, 2022 at 1:32 am
And the leftist RNC will keep giving him money, while starving out true patriot candidates. He and mcconnel work against America First conservatives.
December 27, 2022 at 3:24 am
Romney is a disgrace to Utah and the Republican party he needs to go live somewhere else. He has always been a RINO so what is new? I question his religious beliefs too.
December 12, 2022 at 8:05 am
we had him in mass. gov ha!! he screwed this state and killed people now he’s screwing AMERICA and killing people
December 12, 2022 at 8:23 am
MITT ROMNEY IS AN ANTI-AMERICAN RINO, WHO IN HELL CARES WHAT HE DOES? HE’S ANOTHER JOE MANCHIN. OUE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT / CONGRESS / JUDICIAL DEPTS ARE FILLED WITH THESE KIND OF PEOPLE, ND HAVE BEEN FOR AT LEAST THE PAST 100 YEARS RO SO.

December 12, 2022 at 11:31 am
“President” Biden has committed numerous treasonous acts against America and its people and that jackass is still where he shouldn’t be!
December 12, 2022 at 9:25 am
Mitt Romney is a total RINO who needs to step down from his position as he is not supportive of America at all. another one who calls himself a Republican which he’s not in just his actions against one’s who really care about honesty and truth.I hope Trump succeeds in 2023 and 2024 God Bless Trump who has done so much for our country.
December 12, 2022 at 9:46 am
I have been able to see right through Romney ever since he gave up trying to win when he ran against Obama for President. I really don’t think he will ever get reelected as Senator.
Trump loves America, and worked harder than any President I have ever seen. He was very open with us about what he was doing, to save our country and the world.
December 12, 2022 at 1:35 pm
Yes, Romney folded in his debate with Zer0bama like a cheap lawn chair.
December 12, 2022 at 9:38 am
Out with Mittens Romney. He is a disgrace to the Conservatives anyway. He needs to move to the left. He is owned by the global elite.
December 12, 2022 at 11:11 am
The other day, Mitt (Pierre Delecto) Romney stated that the GOP in the House should just let it go over investigating Hunter Biden, the laptop and his connections to China and the Ukraine. Why would Mittens do this? because like Nancy, Mitch, John Kerry, etc, they all have kids earning big bucks working for companies just like Hunter did. No experience but for that name.
December 18, 2022 at 6:55 pm
True! His punk son like Hunter was cleaning up in the Ukraine!
December 12, 2022 at 11:18 am
Mutt is a hypocritical carpetbagging traitor who has done more to destroy our liberties than any other person who has ever called themselves a Republican. He certainly destroyed more jobs than he created when he was part of Bain Capital, a corporate cannibal.
I have a file three inches thick on that traitorous SOB and the Mormons had better wake up and not vote for him again, if he runs! They cant seem to see that he is satanic!
His office has banned many people from calling, texting, emailing or visiting for just simple disagreements. Nothing that was threatening. He just won’t talk to anyone who disagrees with him.
December 12, 2022 at 8:46 pm
I don’t know why he just doesn’t jump to the Democrat side because he is a closet Democrat. He needs to go right along with the rest of his slime ball RINOs and Democrats.
December 18, 2022 at 6:58 pm
Anti-Mutt glad you know and see that in him! I have through hardship learned to see that Satanic in the eyes and he has it in spades; he is a diabolical Satanists bastard!
December 12, 2022 at 11:48 am
A typical DEMOCRAT.
December 12, 2022 at 12:01 pm
Romney is a typical DEMOCRAT. The DEMOCRATS won’t answer any questions that they are asked, because if they tell the truth, the American people will never vote for a DEMOCRAT again. It just seems to me that the DEMOCRATS seem to be losing their ‘power’. It’s about time.
December 12, 2022 at 12:05 pm
How that moron ever got elected to anything in the first place is still a mystery to me. He’s never done anything for the good of this country, only been stroking his own ego.
December 12, 2022 at 12:08 pm
When is Mitten’s up for re election?, We need to Primary him OUT!!!
December 12, 2022 at 12:19 pm
I certainly won’t interrupt the gleeful celebration to shed a tear when I hear of mitten’s passing. I am ashamed I voted for him in 2012 but the alternative was more of a traitor than even mittens could imagine being.
December 12, 2022 at 12:24 pm
He is a traitor.

Willard “Mittens” loved Trump’s endorsement and being considered for a cabinet post. Now, he’s a total fool who should be primaried by Jason Chaffetz in ’24. He carpetbagged to UT solely to get the Mormon vote!
December 12, 2022 at 1:31 pm
Romney is a typical RINO and helping to destroy the Republican party morals. Utah should be ashamed. I pray God gives them better judgement in the future.
December 12, 2022 at 1:36 pm
If I were to give my true opinion of mittens I would be banned from civil society.
First, the low life chicken molester begs Donald Trump to help him get elected. The second he stepped into office he searched for the biggest knife he could find to stab Trump in the back with.
He does not deserve to be removed from office, he deserves to be deported to North Korea with his seat being in the baggage compartment.
December 12, 2022 at 2:14 pm
Didn’t have to tell me.
December 12, 2022 at 2:17 pm
His comments prove what a worthless person he is with no character, morals, loyalty. He is a HUGE traitor to the USA as well as he is to the Morman Church. You would think a person lacking integrity like Romney would be cast out by the Church. If not, then they’re not any better than him. Here is a guy who 10 years ago secured the Republican nominee for President and now he tells them what he thinks of them. A person with class would hold his vile comments. I see no use for him continuing in this world.
December 12, 2022 at 3:00 pm
We need to stop our politicians and the corrupt media from calling our system a democracy. Our federal government is a republic. In simple terms, a democracy is mob rule. Our states vote as a democracy but the country is a republic. The corrupt start by changing the terms. This is no different than calling abortion pro choice or healthcare. When something is said many times and loud enough, it bc true to the uninformed. And 50%if the people are uninformed. We also need to get back to state senators being chosen by the state house representatives. The house is closer to the people and are more in tune with their constituents. They were able to choose the state senators before the change, who would be more in line with each state constituents needs which would benefit the people. Now the reps and the senators of the same state can easily be on opposite sides. Then we need term limits and limited income for politicians with no benefits whatsoever. This country is just about over as a free state.

December 12, 2022 at 3:26 pm
Romney is a complete scumbag. He should just change parties. He won’t get reelected in Utah. He votes for what the big money wants him to. How else did he get so rich….
December 12, 2022 at 4:17 pm
Who cares what asswipe , liberal spew swallowing , back door accepting RINO Mitt Romney says or thinks !!!! Other than the inbred nitwits in Utah who keep electing a RINO , most Republicans don’t like RINO Romney , Patriots hate him and the socialist democrats just use him. RINO Romney is a DISGRACE to the Republican Party !!!

We had a three time “Red Flag” Utah House member voted out in the Republican Convention [30-70, not even close] who then tried to run a write in campaign in the general. He lost there, too, despite Democrat support. So, in March 2024, we will have Precinct caucuses followed by the Convention in April. He will probably run a petition drive to get on the Primary ballot since he will probably lose the Convention vote. It will be most interesting to see what the Democrats do in this race. Really, Mittens should go on a Mission to Russia.
December 31, 2022 at 8:54 pm
I think it was Ann Coulter who identified “the three legendarily feckless old ladies” of the GOP Senate caucus: Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Mitt Romney.
January 1, 2023 at 12:12 am
How about you go home for good before we ever get to the 2024 elections. You are a worthless RINO and the rest of us are fed up with you.
I tried hard to help you beat Obama but you gave up right before the election, I’d like to know who paid you to quit?

He has been a third wheel since he became a Representative. I hope the people of Utah come to their senses by 2024, time for Romney to go. He and Liz Cheney has been turning to the dark side, long ago, has NOTHING to do with Trump.
But, knowing Mormons, they will hold him in just because he claims to be a Mormon. He won’t make it as a Pug next term, guarantee it, so independent is the last thing he hasn’t tried, probably will work in Utah, for a Mormon. Ignorant.
January 9, 2023 at 10:52 am
Who cares? This RINO should go to the Democratic Party where he belongs.
January 9, 2023 at 1:35 pm
Worthless , azzwipe , liberal jism eating , butt plug using , RINO Romney is a DISGRACE to the Republican Party !!!! The problem is , is that it’s the degenerate nitwits of Utah who keep voting dick wad Romney back in office !!!! Next time RINO Romney runs for re-election , it’s time for true Patriots to put some serious pressure on the RINO Republican voters of Utah .
