WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 5, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — Donald Trump has taken to Twitter, calling fellow Republican Mitt Romney a “pompous ass” for openly questioning his administration’s attempt to invite foreign players into the 2020 election.
He’s also suggesting it’s Romney who should be impeached.
Trump’s broadsides appeared in a series of tweets, the first of which appeared at 8:17 a.m. Saturday.
“Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won. Sadly, he choked! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2019.
Trump’s second tweet took an even nastier tone.
“Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous “ass” who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!” — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 5, 2019.
Trump’s tweets came a day after Romney took to Twitter and blasted Trump for his direct appeal to communist China to investigate the Bidens.
“When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated. — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) October 4, 2019.
A second Romney tweet was no less pointed.
“By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.” — Mitt Romney (@MittRomney) October 4, 2019.
Saturday afternoon Trump upped the ante, tweeting Romney should be impeached.
“I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!” #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY 72.7K
The Romney camp has yet to respond to Trump’s latest tweet.
U.S. Senators cannot be impeached, but they can be removed from office by way of a recall election.
