Romney calls on Obama, Biden ‘honorable,’ refrained from calling trump the same

nearvideo Senator Mitt Romney blasts President Trump the decision to withdraw troops from Syria

Romney questions why the reference to the recently announced ceasefire between Turkey and Kurdish forces have not been discussed before US troops leave the territory.

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, offered the kind words of President Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden, he waived it “honorable”, but in an awkward exchange, with the same compliment about President Trump.

In an interview with Axios, Romney was asked if his 2012 opponent was an “honorable man.”

“I think he is an honorable man, Yes,” answered Romney. “A good father of a family, and he made a lot of mistakes. To do most of the presidents.”

“Is Joe Biden, an honorable man?” Axios executive editor Mike Allen asked.

“Don’t know you, I know Joe Biden very well, but from what I’ve seen and the interactions I had with him, he seems to me to be a man of honor,” Romney responded.

All asked the same question about the trombone, and drew some criticism from the Utah senator.


“I knew where you were, but I’m not going to let you catch me in a corner,” Romney said. “He has elements that I’m not sure of the honour in his life and there are things that I think are honorable. And, I mention this, because the payment is to a porn star, for sexual relations outside of marriage.

“You see, I’m one of those who believes that we have the responsibility, honor and be faithful to our wives and the President made a failure in this regard.”

The former Governor of Massachusetts was, in General, a critical trump card in the entire interview.

“People will realize that the character is really important in our leaders, and that it is important for our leaders to do things to unite us, welcome, people, hot, to come here legally as immigrants, which in no way signal to anyone in America that they are less of an American because of where they came from or their sexual orientation or their race or their religion,” he said.


The senator added that the future is not the kind of Trump’s legacy, including his last step to withdraw troops from Northern Syria, the analysts claimed, one could as a waiver of the U.S.-allied Kurdish forces. As Romney put it, “We must never abandon our friends.”

He also said Clearly: “the world watches and the people who say potentially our allies at a critical time, perhaps the US is not staying with us. Maybe they will cut and run, if you think it is in your best interest. And, to be feet away from the Kurds in a corner of Syria, at a critical time, when the troops coming from Turkey are anxious to you damage something, what I think is a very dark spot in American history.”
