LAME: Mitt Romney Takes Swipe At President Trump In Op-Ed For The Washington Post

Mitt Romney is trying to endear himself to the left for some reason. He just published a column at the Washington Post which takes cheap shots at President Trump.

Breitbart reports:

Mitt Romney Slams Trump’s ‘Character’ in Washington Post Op-Ed

Failed presidential candidate and soon-to-be-sworn-in U.S. Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) took to the Washington Post on Jan. 1 to slam President Donald Trump on New Year’s Day.

“The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December,” Romney opened his op-ed Tuesday.

He acknowledged his opposition to Trump in the 2016 presidential election, claimed that he had early hope for Trump’s presidency, then lamented that “on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.”

Romney acknowledged that Trump had enacted “policies mainstream Republicans have promoted for years.” He praised aligning “U.S. corporate taxes with those of global competitors,” deregulation, cracking down on China’s “unfair” trade practices, criminal justice reform, and appointments of conservative judges.

But he went on to assail Trump’s character: “With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring.”

Now all of the people who were horrible to Romney when he ran in 2012 will hold him up as some kind of hero for bashing Trump. So typical.
