Romney calls Trump's push for foreign dirt 'wrong and appalling'

Source: Politico

Sen. Mitt Romney on Friday denounced President Donald Trump for calling on China and Ukraine to investigate 2020 political rival Joe Biden, saying the president’s request is “wrong and appalling.”

The Utah Republican’s statement marks the strongest condemnation of the president from any Republican senator. Most members of the GOP have responded to the president’s China request with silence.

In a tweet, Romney said that “by all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.”

“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated,” Romney further noted.

1. I can feel his "concern" and Susan Collins must be clutching her pearls.

3. I'm obviously not a Romney fan, but these are solid rebukes.

The point he made in the second tweet is actually a great response to the latest Trump talking point about his supposed newfound desire to go after corruption.

8. he Romney was really concerned he should be calling on other republican Senators to support the

impeachment effort. All hat no cattle, and completely spineless as usual.

5. Mitts, stop with the party line moralized waffling

and start with the authentic patriotism. You sound like Jeff Flake, Susan Collins, and Chuck Grassley. Don't know how long your vocal cords and hair gel can take it.

9. Thanks for that, Mitt, but your "concern" and $2.00 in pocket change...

Won't buy me a cup of coffee at Starbucks.

10. Did he ever explain his historic reversal re: the dotard?

In 2016 he gave such a wonderful, spot on speech about what a monster trump was and then, next thing I see he's having dinner with him, looking like someone who just came from the woodshed, sheepishly grinning away.
A total about face, quite similar to Lindsay Graham's.
What gives?
I'm thinking he has something "on" both of them or a family member. Its how he arranges his life.

11. Appalling? Try criminal and impeachable.

What's it going to take? Trump actually shooting someone on Fifth Avenue?
