Fresh from the shellacking he got for his ill advised, ill timed, tin-eared op-ed opposing President Trump in the Washington Post, and underscored with the chilly reception he got in the Senate for it, Mitt Romney is refusing to change course.
Now the embittered former presidential candidate is pooh-poohing President Trump’s border wall showdown with intransigent Democrats, saying the drugs, illegal aliens, criminals, and smuggling operations pouring over our border are really not much of a crisis.
“I don’t want to see a declaration of national emergency,” Romney told MSNBC. “I think that’s an action that would be taken in the most extreme circumstances, and, hopefully, we don’t reach that.”
“I would vote for the border wall,” Romney, former Republican presidential candidate, told CNN’s Jake Tapper in a Wednesday afternoon interview.
“We should have a wall on the southern border,” the former governor of Massachusetts added.
Maybe Romney thinks a wall’s necessary, but only if he’s the one building it, not President Trump. Maybe he thinks it’s OK, but only if Democrats give permission. Or worst of all, maybe it’s something he just says at election time or to spin out of a crisis. He sure as heck doesn’t believe it now. MORE
