We first told you Mitt Romney was toying with the idea of running for U.S. Senate in Utah as Orrin Hatch announced his retirement. In his coy antics no one was sitting one the edge of their seats or holding their breath in anticipation of his decision or announcement.
Mitt has decided to once again step into the spotlight and run for office. But not without taking a swipe at the president right off the bat.
Watch this video and see if it doesn’t jump out at you:

The Daily Caller has story:
Romney appeared to take aim at President Donald Trump in his announcement saying “Utah welcomes legal immigrants from around the world, Washington sends immigrants a message of exclusion” adding that “people treat others with respect” at the Utah capitol building.
But Romney, not a life long resident is taking heat for carpet bagging:
Romney has lived in Utah for approximately 5 five years after losing his 2012 presidential bid to Barack Obama. The former Massachusetts governor has been accused of carpetbagging by Republican officials in the state.
“I think he’s keeping out candidates that I think would be a better fit for Utah because, let’s face it, Mitt Romney doesn’t live here, his kids weren’t born here, he doesn’t shop here,” Utah GOP chairman Rob Anderson told the Salt Lake City tribune.
This is not the first time Romney tried to spin Trump in a bad light on immigration.
Do we need another anti-Trump guy in Washington?
