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.
The five sons this man has never served while our country was at war. I hope this phony can sleep at night.
While the rest of us try to save our nation by supporting Trump.
Tea Party Member in support of Trump. He is just another RINO who is sorry for himself.
Of course he can sleep at night. Only people with a conscience have trouble sleeping...
