Former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney spoke to Matt Lauer on NBC’s “Today” show Friday morning to discuss his “unprecedented” decision to attack GOP front-runner Donald Trump hours before a debate.
“There’s no question I’m going to do everything within the normal political bounds to make sure that we don’t nominate Donald Trump”, Romney said, calling Trump “terribly unfit for office”.
Donald Trump is edging closer to securing the Republican nomination for president.
Rubio and Trump had the first confrontation of the evening when Ruibo asked Trump to say he would stop manufacturing his clothing brands in Mexico and China, bringing those jobs to the United States.
“He hit my hands”. Those candidates are Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and frontrunner Donald Trump. And you know what they say about men with small hands.
“If they’re small, something else must be small”, he said, referring to his manhood.
He called Trump’s campaign fraudulent and said the prospect of his presidency threatened the safety and stability of the U.S.in a speech at the University of Utah, TIME reports.
It seems unlikely. But this has been the most unlikely of campaigns since Trump descended from Trump Tower a year ago and went all in.
Romney didn’t explicitly endorse a candidate on Thursday, and that’s part of the problem in the GOP race – no leading contender to take on Trump has emerged from the remaining contenders of Texas Sen.
“He was a failed candidate”.
He defended his decision to speak out so late in the process – after Trump has rolled through early states and has a chance to lock up the nomination on March 15 with wins in Florida and Ohio.
He shrugged when presented with videotaped evidence from the moderators that he had shifted positions on the Iraq war, immigration and whether to admit refugees from the Syrian civil war.
Mr Rubio said his rival had “mocked everybody” with personal attacks. “You all should be ashamed”, one Twitter user blasted out as he shared a CNN news story relating Trump’s declaration about his genitals.
The candidates also spoke passionately about support for the Second Amendment, and foreign policy – where Trump stated the need to work with all countries instead of spending “trillions and trillions” against them.
