Romney, who harshly criticized Trump over the years, said he supports much of what the president has done such as cutting taxes, rolling back business regulations and reducing the size of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments in southern Utah.
An audience member asked Romney if he would give the same scathing speech about Trump today that he did before the election and if not, how would he change it. Romney called Trump a phony and fraud in a March 2016 speech at the University of Utah. Romney didn’t bite.
“I look forward. I’m not going to look backward,” he said, adding Trump has moved on a number of important issues, including backing away from imposing a 45 percent tariff on all foreign goods. Romney is among a dozen Republicans vying for the GOP nomination to replace U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch.
