Romney denies he led &#039never Trump&#039 movement, says president&#039s policies &#039pretty effective&#039

In spite of his sharp criticism of the president during the 2016 campaign, Mitt Romney over the weekend denied he led&#xA0the &quotnever Trump&quot movement amongst conservatives.

Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee who is at the moment running for a Senate seat in Utah, mentioned that although Trump was not the candidate he wanted, he supports many of the president&#x2019s policies.

&quotPresident Trump was not the individual I wanted to turn out to be the nominee of our celebration, but he&#x2019s president now,&#x201D Romney, also a former Massachusetts governor, told a reporter. &#x201CThe policies he&#x2019s&#xA0promoted have been quite efficient, and I help a lot of those policies.&quot

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Romney blasted Trump as a &quotphony&quot and a &quotfraud&quot who was &quotplaying members of the American public for suckers.&quot Following the election, the two eventually made amends and speculation emerged that Trump could even pick Romney as his secretary of state. Trump did not, and alternatively went with ExxonMobil executive Rex Tillerson.

Romney made his recent comments whilst in Arizona, where he was campaigning for Arizona Republican Senate candidate Rep. Martha McSally, who is vying to fill the seat becoming vacated by Republican Sen. Jeff Flake.

Romney is looking to get back into the political sphere as properly he’s searching for to replace longtime Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Republican, in the U.S. Senate. Trump endorsed Romney earlier this year.

The most recent polling from Utah shows that Romney enjoys a commanding 26 point led more than his Democratic rival Jenny Wilson.
