Mitt Romney says he feels a moral obligation to fight to keep Donald Trump from becoming president.
“I wanted my grandkids to see that I couldn’t simply ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world,” he said in a Wall Street Journal interview published Friday.
“I know that some people are offended that someone who lost and is the former nominee continues to speak, but that’s how I can sleep at night. And there are some people, though it’s a small number, who still value my opinion.”
Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee, admitted that he may have poured more fuel on the fire by attacking Trump’s fitness for the Oval Office.
“Friends warned me, ‘don’t speak out, stay out of the fray,’ because criticizing Mr. Trump will only help him by giving him someone else to attack," he said. "They were right. I became his next target, and the incoming attacks have been constant and brutal.”
Romney added that he has ruled out a third-party White House run, noting he will not vote for Trump nor for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.
Romney blew his chance. I will not give him another one. Go home Mitt.
I really don't care if you sleep anytime. You probably can't sleep at night thinking of all the stupid things you said, didn't say and acted in 2012. Just go away and left America do its thing, something we should have done a long time ago.
SammysDad, absolutely on target!!!
Right On, Vote Trump.
Romney a fighter? Please spare me...he could not even fight off the debate moderator, Candy Crowley.
Sounds like the green eyed monster called envy has bitten him. He let Obama walk all over him and never fought back. Biden (the idiot) made Ryan look like a joke. Bet Romney is wishing he had a set like Trump.
Call them "Moderates" if you want I call them "Liberal RINOs" and it is high time to get them the H^%$*(& OUT OF OFFICE ...
What happened to romney when he was running against obama? Now he wants to fight Trump because Trump is not part of the establishment. Please keep sending this message romney, at least until the people wake-up to what is really happening within the political arena.
Romney, you really need to crawl back into your hole... I voted for you, but then again I own my mistake. and moving on... and I do think you need to do the same.
He will fight Trump so he can sleep better........................?
But he wouldn't fight Obama and he was sleeping just fine?
