On Thursday, February 2, 2012, Donald Trump endorsed former Massachusetts Governor and failed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for president.
Following brief remarks by Trump, Mitt Romney then heaped praise on Trump saying:
“Donald Trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works and to create jobs, he has done it in Nevada and across the country. He is one of the few people who stood up and said China has taken jobs from Americans. We believe in free trade but we have to have a President to stand up and not allow people to cheat day in and day out.”
Romney is scheduled to speak today and say “‘Trump is a phony, a fraud’ who is ‘playing the American public for suckers’.
The former presidential candidate has emerged in recent days as an aggressive critic of Trump, using Twitter to call on the billionaire to release his tax returns and to denounce his refusal to disavow the endorsement of his campaign by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
Trump, in turn, has taken to attacking Romney on Twitter, tweeting “I am the only one who can beat Hillary Clinton. I am not a Mitt Romney, who doesn’t know how to win. Hillary wants no part of ‘Trump’” and “Why did Mitt Romney BEG me for my endorsement four years ago?”
