Mitt Romney Attacks Trump For Suggesting Cheating Candidates Be Punished

( )- Senator Mitt Romney attacked Trump as a “RINO,” a Republican in name only, according to the Washington Examiner. The comment came as Trump took to his social media platform suggesting that some rules within the Constitution should be “terminated” to deal with the massive fraud that is occurring in elections.

Romney reportedly joined a growing list of Republicans who are distancing themselves from the former president, although Romney has always been critical of Trump. While Trump supported the senator’s 2012 bid for the White House, Romney came out against him in 2016, saying that he was a “fraud” and criticized him for his temperament.

Over the weekend, Trump wrote on Truth Social, “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

Romney condemned Trump’s comments, saying that the Republican Party is the party of the Constitution and terminating parts of it makes him go “from being MAGA to being a RINO.”

The media ran with the story and Trump fired back, calling them liars. He said that he never wanted to terminate the Constitution but called for steps to be taken to “right the wrongs” of the widespread fraud.

“This is simply more DISINFORMATION & LIES, just like RUSSIA, RUSSIA, RUSSIA, and all of their other HOAXES & SCAMS,” Trump wrote.

Romney also said that Republicans have been willing to distance themselves from the former president but that what they have to say is largely irrelevant, adding that it is up to constituents to decide who they want to be nominated in 2024. Since the midterms, Republicans have urged the party to drop Trump and side with another candidate for 2024. Now, a feud is erupting between Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

Senator John Kennedy also commented on the president’s remark, saying that the Constitution could be amended, and interpreted, but not suspended.
