Romney Refuses to Endorse Trump In the Primary or General Election

In a move surprising to absolutely nobody, Senator Mitt Romney has declared that he will not endorse any presidential candidate in the 2020 race, including Donald Trump, in either the primary or general election.

“I’m not planning on endorsing in the presidential race,” Romney said. “At this stage, I’m not planning on endorsing in the primary or in the general.”

President Trump may as well concede now. Just kidding … a non-endorsement from a timid Republican is only going to bolster his staunchly conservative base.

CNN, on the other hand, thinks this is just another sign of how bad things are going for Trump. No seriously, they think this is bad news for the incumbent.

“The decision by a party’s previous nominee to avoid backing a sitting president is yet another norm-breaking episode in Trump’s tumultuous time atop the Republican Party,” they reported.

Oh noes!

Sorry, CNN. But this non-endorsement from Romney isn’t going to sway anybody, isn’t a sign of trouble, and is actually another ‘tumultuous’ event that reminds Trump supporters why they like his ‘norm-breaking’ style.

And it says a hell of a lot more about what a snake Romney can be when it comes to his own political aspirations.

This is, after all, a man who accepted President Trump’s endorsement in the 2012 election, relished his role as a never-Trumper during the 2016 election and claimed he never would have accepted the previous endorsement if he’d only known about Trump’s allegedly racist ways, gratefully accepted his endorsement for Senate in 2018 despite that knowledge, and is returning that favor by saying ‘no endorsement for you’ once again in 2020.

After Trump put aside their differences and endorsed Romney for Utah senator in 2018, the occasional Republican turned around and stabbed him in the back writing a scathing op-ed indicating the President had failed to live up to the “mantle” of the presidency.

“His conduct over the past two years …” Romney wrote in January of this year, “is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.”

Trump encapsulated Romney’s entire political mission since 2012 in a nutshell.

“I won big, and he didn’t,” he fired back.

That loss and the fact that it was Trump who showed Republicans how to win a presidential election is what has driven Romney ever since. Sad!
