Bennett Rips Romney Over Op-Ed: 'A Gratuitous, Unnecessary, and Ill-Timed Shame'

Sen. -elect Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Wednesday that President Donald Trump would have to find a "win-win" in order to end the government shutdown the President began by insisting on $5 billion in funds for a border wall.
"With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable", Romneywrote in the op-ed piece in The Washington Post on Tuesday.
In a hard jab, Romney highlights the 68-point plummet in trust America's closest allies have that the USA president will do the right thing between former President Barack Obama's last year in office and Trump's first year.
In response, Mr Trump tweeted: "Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast!" "A president should unite us and inspire us to follow "our better angels"".
This speech, perhaps one of the most critical ones about Trump from a current GOP member, led political analyst and Fox News commentator Bill Kristol to brand it a sign of growing resistance to the 45th USA president from within his own party.
He continued levying criticism, and Trump soon hit back.
"The world needs American leadership, and it is in America's interest to provide it", Romney continued, pointing to the actions of autocratic regimes in Russian Federation and China as a threat to worldwide stability.
In his first Cabinet meeting of 2019, US President Donald Trump reflected on his lack of popularity in Europe.
But this is where Trump, and therefore America, is falling down, Romney claims. Question will be, is he a Flake? "For an incoming Republican freshman senator" to attack Trump, she tweeted, "is disappointing and unproductive". Republicans on Thursday will cede control of the House to Democrats, who were prepared to oppose Trump on a number of policies and promised a slew of investigations into his actions and those of his aides and campaign officials, particularly with regard to Russia's election meddling.
Mr Trump drew a comparison with Jeff Flake, an outgoing Republican senator who also attacked him past year. In one speech, Romney said there was plenty of evidence that Trump was "a con man, a fake". In a recent CNN exclusive, Romney said he would not be running for president against Trump. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the occasion.
Romney also wrote that "not all of the president's policies have been misguided", citing corporate tax cuts, reduced regulations and the appointment of conservative judges. "So sad, I wish everyone had the courage @realDonaldTrump had", he said. "His attack on the media", Romney told Tapper.
"I think Mitt Romney is taking a very different approach in being willing to be much more openly critical about the shortcomings that he sees", he said, adding he thinks many GOP senators have deep concerns about the Trump administration but are unwilling to state them publicly.
"He should be happy for all Republicans", Trump continued of Romney.
Despite Romney's prior criticism, after Trump won the presidency in November 2016, Trump briefly considered tapping Romney as secretary of state.
