Mitt Romney Rips Trump in Late-Night Tweet

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, took to Twitter late Thursday to rip President Trump, saying the president had failed to make “even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before a court of law” pertaining to the 2020 presidential election.

Romney said earlier this month that he did not have a problem with Trump challenging the election results and told “Fox News Sunday” he once considered challenging the 2012 election results when he lost to President Obama.

He said he thought it was “appropriate for the president to make sure that the vote count has been done properly.”

But Romney’s tone seemed to take a dramatic shift shortly after Rudy Giuliani made the case for the Trump campaign’s challenge of the 2020 election results.

Romney took to Twitter and said, “Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people, and overturn the election. It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President.”
