Both made a decision to retire rather than take on a hard re-election campaign.

Arizona senator Mr Flake tweeted with a link to the article: "A thoughtful piece by incoming Senator Romney". "His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University".

Karpowitz said it's a "little surprising" that Lee would announce his intention to back Trump at this stage given his resistance three years ago.

Corker replied: "Yes, just like Mexico is paying for the wall..."

Trump's campaign manager, Brad Parscale, accused Romney in a tweet of jealousy, saying Romney lacked the ability to save the nation while Trump had saved it.

Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and former MA governor, wrote Tuesday that the president has "not risen to the mantle of the office," distancing himself from Trump just two days before he will be sworn into the Senate.

Far-fetched as Romney 2020 may seem, the Trump team signaled that it's taking him seriously minutes after the op-ed was published.

Mitt Romney entered 2019 with a fiery rant that cast doubt on Donald Trump's fitness and suitability to serve as the most senior politician in Washington.

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

"POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7", McDaniel wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

But during the 2016 election, Romney delivered a scathing rebuke of Trump in a speech in which he called the Republican candidate a "phony" and a bully, and criticized his rhetoric about Muslims and Mexican immigrants.

Limiting mercury from United States coal plants not 'necessary'

"I would like some assurances that he is going to be a vigorous defender of the U.S. Constitution, that he is not going to be an autocrat, that he is not going to be an authoritarian", Lee said then.

Neither Lee nor Romney voted for Trump in 2016, and both were highly critical of him during the campaign.

"He should be happy for all Republicans", Trump continued of Romney. Meanwhile, Democratic voters and the media give them too little credit, he said.

"He talks eight months earlier about how Trump is a conman and a fraud, and yet he's eating at Jean Georges. with Trump trying to become secretary of state!" said Hostin.

Romney also wrote that "not all of the president's policies have been misguided", citing corporate tax cuts, reduced regulations and the appointment of conservative judges.

With the prospect of a divided party heading into the next presidential election, Sen.

"I don't think there's an appetite for a Romney run within the Republican party", he said. Our economic and military strength was part of that, of course, but our enduring commitment to principled conduct in foreign relations, and to the rights of all people to freedom and equal justice, was even more esteemed.

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., said "there's all sorts of active disagreements that go on" with the White House behind the scenes.

"I think it's important, as I begin this new job, to make it very clear where I stand". Behind closed doors, there are things on tariffs and things like that where we've offered a differing opinion.

"I support the president as well as anybody".
