Trump tells Romney to be a ‘TEAM player’, after scathing commentary

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, who is Mitt Romney's niece, sent out a tweet on Wednesday slamming her uncle for his opinion piece criticizing President Donald Trump.

And in February, Trump threw his support behind Romney's Senate bid, writing on Twitter that he would be a "worthy successor" to retiring Senator Orrin Hatch, whom Trump had urged to run for another term.

Paul also refused to identify himself as a prime influence when it comes to criminal justice reform, arguing that both presidential advisor/son-in-law Jared Kushner and Trump himself believe that "people have been unfairly in prison for decade after decade, many of them minorities, and we need to have a better way", again declaring that "it's not so much me pushing [Trump] in one direction as that we see eye-to-eye" on those policies. "And it is in this province where the incumbent's shortfall has been most glaring".

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. "For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack @realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want and is disappointing and unproductive", McDaniel tweeted. Rather, Corker "wanted to run but poll numbers TANKED when I wouldn't endorse him", Trump tweeted. Question will be, is he a Flake? Trump had Romney come to Trump Tower for dinner, but then passed over him in favor of Rex Tilleson.

He called her a strong supporter of the president and noted that she was doing her job as chairman of the Republican Party. Instead of being a constructive United States Senator like Mike Lee or Orrin Hatch, Romney wants to be the new Jeff Flake; the most obnoxious Republican anti-Trumper in the Senate. Rand Paul blasted Romney on Twitter as a "Big Government Republican".

"I will say this, if he fought really hard against President Obama like he does against me, he would have won the election", Trump said. He won. And I recognize that and appreciate that. As Trump inched closer to the nomination in 2016, Romney delivered a well-publicized speech that argued that Trump was unfit for the presidency.

Paul, who last month sided with Trump when the president suddenly announced he would withdraw American troops from Syria, said he has a good relationship with Trump "because I treat the president with dignity, I treat the president with respect". But previous year he thanked Trump for his endorsement as Romney ran for a senate seat from Utah.

According to RNC rules, any primary challenger to Trump would be eligible for a vote during the 2020 Republican National Convention if the challenger wins a plurality of the delegates in five separate states or territories.

In a letter Tuesday night to the other 167 committee members, Jevon O.A. Williams warned that Romney could use "loopholes" in the nominating process to challenge Trump, the Daily Mail of London reported.

Brushing aside the fact that Trump often personally attacks and insults other politicians, Paul said Romney's criticism of the president's character was a "big mistake" and an attempt by the new senator to present himself as "holier than thou".

"Jealously is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it", Parscale wrote.

"That isn't to say I don't have my disappointments. I do".
