Trump, Ramaswamy Campaigns Fire Back at Mitt Romney After He Says He Would Vote for Anyone but Them in 2024



Many conservatives, including former President Donald Trump, have called senator and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney a Republican in Name Only (RINO).

Declining to enter the 2024 presidential race has not stopped Romney from sharply criticizing GOP candidates.

Romney, who will not seek reelection when his term expires in 2024, recently said of GOP candidates Trump and Vivek Ramaswamy, “I would rather support a number of Democrats over Trump or Ramaswamy.”

The senator shared his comments during an interview with Norah O’Donnell of CBS. Romney told O’Donnell that he’d “be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans” except Ramaswamy and that a “number of the Democrats” would be a better president than Trump.

Romney did not elaborate on which Democrats, but added of Ramaswamy: “Maybe not Vivek, but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them.”

Both Republican presidential hopefuls pushed back on the Utah senator.

Ramaswamy told Fox News Digital in a statement Monday. “Turns out he’s opposed to America-First itself, not just one man. Newsflash, Mitt: I didn’t vote for you either, and I still call on your niece Ronna to resign.”

Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee, is reportedly under fire for less than stellar election results in 2022.

In classic Trumpian flare, the Trump campaign said of Mitt Romney: “Voters aren’t going to take advice from a loser and quitter like Mittens.”

In announcing he would not run for reelection in 2024, Romney said: “I have spent my last 25 years in public service of one kind or another. At the end of another term, I’d be in my mid-eighties. Frankly, it’s time for a new generation of leaders. They’re the ones that need to make the decisions that will shape the world they will be living in,” according to Fox News.

Romney added: “We face critical challenges – mounting national debt, climate change, and the ambitious authoritarians of Russia and China. Neither President Biden nor former President Trump are leading their party to confront them.”

Trump referred to Romney’s retirement announcement as “fantastic news” for America, Utah and the Republican Party

Notably, Romney and Trump have feuded since the senator voted against several Trump first-term initiatives and voted with Democrats to impeach Trump twice.
