“Someone please Mitt to Wake up to Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a sympathetic and very appropriate, and my statement on China in relation to corruption, not politics,” he tweeted. “If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he would have won. Unfortunately, he is choking!”


“Mitt Romney knew how to win. He is a pompous ‘a–‘, has been against me from the beginning, except when he asked me for my confirmation for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me, his Secretary of state, (I don’t give it to him),” he said. He is so bad for the R’s!”

Trump was responding to recent criticism, the Biden of the Utah senator about his comments in which he said that China investigate should, as he had just urged, to do the Ukraine in July.

Romney on Friday said that Trump his claim that China and the Ukraine to investigate the three-piece was “terrifying.”


“If only the citizens of the US President, Trump singles out China for the investigation of it, his political opponents in the middle of the Democratic nomination process, it strains claim to credulity, that it is anything other than politically motivated,” Romney tweeted.

He added: “From all appearances, the President’s’ brazen and to investigate unprecedented appeal to China and the Ukraine, Joe Biden, is wrong and shocking.”

Trump and Romney have feuded with regularity in the last few years, with Trump regularly referring to the Romney in 2012 against President Barack Obama. Romney, earlier this year, wrote an op-ed in which he Trump attacked the behavior and said, “he has not risen to the mantle in the office is.”
