According to Trump’s post on Truth Social, “He did not serve with distinction.” Senator Mitt Romney made the announcement that he would not run for reelection. Trump referred to the announcement as “fantastic news for America, the great state of Utah, and for the Republican Party” in his post, which was written in all capital letters.
Senator Mitt Romney’s Decision Not To Run For Reelection
As per the report of POLITICO, on Wednesday, former president Donald Trump boasted on Truth Social in response to Senator Mitt Romney’s decision to forego a run for reelection.
Trump referred to Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) as “Pierre Delecto,” an alias Romney formerly used on X, then Twitter, to like tweets critical of Trump among other content, and called the announcement “fantastic news for America, the great state of Utah, and for the Republican Party.”
The two Republicans have long been at odds with one another. Trump and his fans were enraged by Senator Mitt Romney’s moderate stance on legislation and readiness to work across party lines because they saw them as a check on Trumpism.
Senator Mitt Romney was the only Republican senator who voted to convict Trump during his first impeachment trial. Six of his coworkers came along with him the second time.
