A new report indicates that GOP Senators are becoming increasingly frustrated with Mitt Romney’s rhetoric about President Trump.
According to The Hill:
Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-Utah) public battles with President Trump are taking a toll on his relationship with fellow GOP senators, with many resenting the implication that they’re afraid of standing up to the president.
Romney has replaced retired Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) as the go-to senator for voicing dissension within the Senate GOP ranks when Trump finds himself in hot water.
That distinction has made Romney one of the most high-profile freshman Republican senators in recent years, but it has also fueled grumbling among his colleagues.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), one of Trump’s biggest defenders, told The Hill he’s frustrated with Romney’s regular critiques of Trump and suggested his colleague might have unresolved feelings about failing to defeat former President Obama in the 2012 presidential campaign.
Many have pointed to the fact that Romney is jealous of President Trump for becoming President while he failed to do so.
His supporters claim Romney is just fighting for the future of our country.
