GOP civil war: RNC member rips Romney for 'political treachery'

Mitt Romney arrives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala to celebrate the opening of “Heavenly Bodies Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” in New York

"Most people do not critique the president's character", Paul said. Or has Romney forgotten that he was accused of sexism for saying that, as governor of MA, he had "binders full of women" candidates' resumes he considered in filling top jobs in his administration?

"That isn't to say I don't have my disappointments. I do. I hope not", Trump said. Look at how virtuous I am... "I've been pleased with the number of things he's done, and he's been very helpful to me on criminal justice reform".

As one of President Trump's loyal defenders, especially in the face of his more controversial decisions, Sen.

Romney said he will support Trump policies that he believes are "in the best interests of the country and my state".

"The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg questioned why Romney had accepted Trump's endorsement if he didn't like the president, while co-host Sunny Hostin labeled the senator-elect a "shapeshifter"; Romney was previously trying to become Trump's secretary of state. Question will be, is he a Flake?

"I won big, and he didn't", Trump added in a knock to Romney's failed bid for president in 2012. "He should be happy for all Republicans", the president wrote.

Asked about the possibility that Romney intends to run against Trump in 2020, Paul pointed out that Trump was able to win some states, such as MI and Pennsylvania, that Romney was not.

Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel also criticised Romney on Twitter, calling his essay an "attack" on Trump that was "disappointing and unproductive".

McDaniel's attack on her uncle came after the president himself criticized the incoming senator. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., another retiring senator, left off.

All told, you won't be hurting for choice if you want something to watch when the clock strikes midnight. There will also be performances from The Lab, Bebe Rexha and the lovelytheband and the USO Show Troupe.

Paul didn't limit his criticism of Romney to a press call. "If he's going to be the critic from Utah, it's going to hurt him and Utah".

"But, on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions last month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office", Romney wrote.

Romney made clear in the op-ed that he largely plans to go along with the Republican Party - and not seek to challenge Trump at every turn.

While Romeny seems be off to a rocky start with the president, Lee has thrived in the Trump administration. "Does he understand anything about the situation that his Republican colleague, Donald Trump, is in now?"

Brushing aside the fact that Trump often personally attacks and insults other politicians, Paul said Romney's criticism of the president's character was a "big mistake" and an attempt by the new senator to present himself as "holier than thou".

Politico reported that Lee and other conservative senators had lunch with Trump amid the government shutdown. "I acknowledge the president was successful".

Successfully blocking Trump's re-nomination, said Williams, would feed Romney's "fantasy of being president, even if that means destroying our party and denying President Trump re-election".

Lee tried to derail Trump's nomination at the 2016 GOP convention.

Inequality isn't new, Warren said, but "Donald Trump is an accelerant", and "he's pretty damned open about" his view that "this government works for the rich".
