Trump endorses Mitt Romney's bid for Senate seat

President Donald Trump endorsed longtime foe Mitt Romney for Utah Senate on Monday night, saying the former 2012 presidential candidate has his "full support and endorsement!" "He will make a great Senator and worthy successor to Orin Hatch, and has my full support and endorsement".

The two have not always gotten along in the past.

Donald Trump and Mitt Romney, once one of the president's fiercest critics, have kissed and made up, at least on Twitter. "I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah", Romney tweeted late Monday evening. He has slammed Romney as a "two-time failed candidate", one of the "dumbest and worst candidates in the history of Republican politics" and a "mixed up man".

Romney, who was the GOP presidential nominee in 2012, responded to President Trump's support with gratitude.

Romney previously served as the governor of MA, before winning the GOP nomination for president in 2012 where he was defeated by Barack Obama.

The former MA governor announced February 16 that he would run for the Senate seat now occupied by GOP Sen.

Romney changed his tune after Trump beat Clinton for president, and even considered serving as Trump's Secretary of State.

The pilot survived the initial attack and ejected, but died in a ground fight, detonating his grenade to avoid being captured. The mercenaries are said to have been hired by private military firms backing Syrian pro-government troops.

In a March 2016 speech, Romney said Trump's "promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University". Rex Tillerson got the job, and apparently nothing came of the meeting save for some awkward photos.

Since then, Romney has repeatedly criticized the Trump administration, particularly after Trump's response to the actions of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Va., last summer.

Romney has also had some other harsh words for the president in 2016. In the run-up to the December special election, Romney stated that Moore's election "would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation".

Beeson said Romney will provide a natural contrast to Trump's leadership style in his Senate campaign.

Some see recent public niceties between the men as evidence that they're burying the hatchet; however, Trump's endorsement will likely only solidify his popularity among his most enthusiastic base: Mormons.

"Utah's economic and political success is a model for our nation", Romney said in a written announcement distributed Friday morning.
