Rand Paul of Kentucky noted that the 2020 election hopes of many Republicans in the Senate and House will be tied to Trump.

"If he's decided already that he's going to endorse and that he's not going to support any kind of opposition to the president, then that's an important signal and I do think that's a headline", he said. "So sad, I wish everyone had the courage" Trump had.

Once Trump was elected, though, Romney was courted as a possible secretary of state.

He revived his feud with Trump by writing a scathing op-ed in The Washington Post published Tuesday, criticizing the President's behavior as "evidence that the President has not risen to the mantle of the office".

"For now at least Mitt Romney has become the leader of the Republican Resistance to Trump", Kristol tweeted. "The world needs American leadership", Romney wrote, "and it is in America's interest to provide it".

Romney has had his public run-ins with the president.

Romney, a former MA governor, had criticized Trump before - notably, in a March 2016 speech he called Trump a "fraud" and opposed his bid for the GOP nomination - but later he made peace with the president-elect and even expressed interest in joining his administration.

Utah's soon-to-be senior senator, though, had no comment Wednesday on Romney's take on Trump.

With the prospect of a divided party heading into the next presidential election, Sen. Sasse has also said he "regularly" considers leaving his party and becoming an independent. It would be tricky terrain for Sasse to publicly battle with Trump, who won the state in 2016 by 25 percentage points. "He should be happy for all Republicans", the president wrote. Meanwhile, Democratic voters and the media give them too little credit, he said.

Harris County Sheriff's Office on scene of shooting of 7-year-old victim. "She said, 'Momma, Jazmine's not moving". Authorities described the suspect as a bearded white man in his 40s, and he remains at large.

Karpowitz said Lee appears to moving toward the camp of Republicans who are willing to work with the president, though that's not to say Romney isn't willing to do that. "No Republican president opposed for re-nomination has ever won re-election".

President Trump was propelled to the presidency by his America First agenda that fights for hardworking American taxpayers and the forgotten men and women in our country.

"I would vote for the border wall". In a recent CNN exclusive, Romney said he would not be running for president against Trump.

"Well, over the course of the last two years, I have put out a number of statements that relate to things that were of great concern to me". "I do not intend to comment on every tweet or fault".

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., said "there's all sorts of active disagreements that go on" with the White House behind the scenes. And, by the way, I acknowledge the president was successful. But I support this president in terms of what he's trying to do.

"It's a big mistake and it's really getting things off on the wrong foot for the senator from Utah", he said, insisting.Romney would be an outlier among Republican senators, even those who disagree with Trump on issues.

The Senate passed a measure that blamed Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and called on Riyadh to "ensure appropriate accountability".

Romney also emphasized that in his campaign to be a Utah senator campaign, Trump was "endorsing me, I wasn't endorsing him".

Warren actually found some common ground with Trump on foreign policy, however. Like many of you, I have been frustrated by the inability to get Republicans nominated to US attorney, USA marshal, and District Court judgeships. And I think of those qualities.
