President Donald Trump on Sunday admitted he’s still holding a grudge against Mitt Romney, the only GOP senator to be left off a congressional task force on reopening the U.S. economy during the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump was asked by a reporter at Sunday’s coronavirus briefing at the White House whether leaving Romney off the list meant the president was holding a grudge. The president responded, “Yeah it does.”
“I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney,” he said. “You know, I have 52 Republican senators — ” “He was a governor. You don’t want his advice?” “Well, I just don’t think — you know, I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney. I don’t really want his advice,” Trump said.
Romney was the only Republican Senator to vote for an article of impeachment.
