Donald Trump Gives Mitt Romney A Pass After Attack On His Character In Brutal Op-Ed: Is POTUS Becoming Weak?

Mitt Romney is attacking Donald Trump over his poor character, but the president chose not to respond in a mean way. Why did he do that?


Political buffs are still baffled by the weak answer that President Donald Trump gave after reading the blistering op-ed that was written by Mitt Romney.

The failed 2012 presidential candidate, and now Utah Senator-Elect penned a fiery piece in

Romney called out Trump for turning his back or feuding with allies such as Canada and France who fight beside the United States.

Romney wrote in part: "A president should unite us and inspire us to follow “our better angels.” A president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect."

The Republican politician aslo had this to say: "As a nation, we have been blessed with presidents who have called on the greatness of the American spirit. With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring."

He continued with: "After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the occasion. His early appointments of Rex Tillerson, Jeff Sessions, Nikki Haley, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster, Kelly and Mattis were encouraging. But, on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions last month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office."

Romney said he might not endorse Trump in the 2020 election.

Is Trump losing some of aggressivity?
