Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Wednesday reiterated his belief that President Donald Trump will win re-election in November.
In October 2019. Romney got on record for saying that President Trump will be the Republican presidential nominee and likely win re-election in 2020.
Romney’s prediction comes after the New York Times reported that the Utah Republican, along with former President George W. Bush, will not support the incumbent president’s re-election bid. A spokesperson for Bush denied the report, telling the Texas Tribune: “This is completely made up. He is retired from presidential politics and has not indicated how he will vote.”
“I’m not going to be describing who I’ll be voting for, I don’t imagine,” Romney told reporters on Monday when asked about the Times‘ report. “My plan is to stay quiet on that.”
On Monday, President Donald Trump mocked Romney after the senator participated in a march in Washington, D.C. in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. “Tremendous sincerity, what a guy. Hard to believe, with this kind of political talent, his numbers would ‘tank’ so badly in Utah!” the president tweeted.
