Romney Backs Trump

He sure got a lot of attention for his letter criticizing Trump a few weeks ago. Where is that attention now?

He said: ‘You (Pelosi) and your fellow Democrats have voted for over 600 miles of border fence in the past, why won’t you vote for another few miles now?

‘I don’t understand their position, I really don’t.’

Romney said he plans to keep working with other senators to find interim solutions, such as legislation that would make sure essential government employees still working get paid now.

Romney was speaking in the northern Utah city of Ogden after visiting with county commissioners about the shutdown’s impact on the community.

He implored the two sides to ‘make a deal’ and end the suffering of federal workers who aren’t getting paid, suggesting Pelosi should offer a certain amount of money for the border wall and make a proposal to the president about border security. He said Trump is willing to allow participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to stay in the country.

‘On policy, it strikes me like there’s not a big gap but the politics have drawn people into different corners,’ Romney said.

Romney said the country deserves border security, which includes more barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border. He said there is ‘humanitarian pain’ being suffered by people entering the country illegally and being stopped at the border.

    Romney is a clown.

    Welcome to the battle, Mitt…first thing to understand is that logic doesn’t enter into the liberal mindset, only victory.

    Secondly, I don’t think “suffering” is the right word for what Federal workers are going through…somewhere between “inconvenience” and “vacationing on the public dime” would fit better, as we all know they will be paid for not working, and then will likely be provided extra help to catch up once this Mexican standoff ends.
