GOPUSA-Despite gladly accepting Donald Trump’s endorsement back in 2012 during his own presidential run, Mitt Romney came out on Thursday and blasted the GOP presidential front-runner. Romney said that if Republicans choose Trump, “the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.”
Romney claims that Trump will lead the country into a “prolonged recession.” Regarding national security, Romney said, “Trump’s bombast is already alarming our allies and fueling the enmity of our enemies. Insulting all Muslims will keep many of them from fully engaging with us in the urgent fight against ISIS.”
The Associated Press details that Romney calls a Trump nomination a win for Hillary Clinton.
Romney also said that a Trump nomination at the party’s convention in Cleveland in July would enable Democrat Hillary Clinton to win the presidency. He contended that Trump “has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president.”
Romney’s involvement comes as party elites pore over complicated delegate math, outlining hazy scenarios for a contested convention and even flirting with the long-shot prospect of a third party option.
