Senator Mike Lee was abandoned by RINO Romney when he needed them most, and President Trump is not happy about it. Mitt Romney turned his back on Senator Lee after he refused to endorse his senate re-election campaign. In response, Trump fired back with both barrels..
According to the Hill, Following news that Romney has refused to endorse Sen. Mike Lee’s reelection campaign, former President Trump attacked Romney for “abusing” his Utah colleague.
“Mike Lee is an outstanding Senator who has been abused, in an unprecedented way, by a fellow Republican Senator from his own State, something which rarely has happened in political History,” Trump said in a statement issued through his Save America PAC.
“Such an event would only be understandable if Mike did not perform his duties as a United States Senator, but he has, and he has performed them well,” the former president continued.
During a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson on Tuesday evening, Lee publicly asked Romney to help him win the race against Independent challenger Evan McMullin.
Mitt Romney has refrained from making an endorsement since he is friends with both Lee and McMullin, who left the Republican party after Trump won the GOP nomination and ran against him.
“I’ve worked with Mike a lot and appreciate the work we do together. But both are good friends, and I’m going to stay out,” Romney said in a statement to The Hill.
