Romney 2016: “If Trump is the GOP nominee …”

Some dire predictions from our national arbiter of morality.


At the risk of piling on …

Last week, we flashed back to Romney’s 2016 public diatribe against then nomination candidate Trump.

Of course, he dwelled on Trump’s boorish personal behavior (as if that wasn’t already evident to all) and his choppy business record (with emphasis on the entrepreneurial  failures, e.g. Trump University and the Atlantic City casino).

And, he made a couple of dire predictions.

First, he unequivocally predicted: He will lose to Hillary Clinton.


I guess his logic was: “I was a better candidate than Trump and I lost, so …”

And, if Trump does get elected …


On the economy, the insightful, clairvoyant Romney predicted:

“If his economic plans are implemented America will go into a deep recession.”

Sorry, Mitt … the economy is humming, unemployment is at all time lows and the stock market is at record highs.


“His tariff-like penalties would instigate a trade war and that would raise prices for consumers, kill our export jobs and lead entrepreneurs and businesses of all stripes to flee America.

Oops … inflation is nowhere to be seen and companies, factories and jobs have returned to the U.S.


“Though Donald Trump has offered very few specific economic plans, what little he has said is enough to know that he would be very bad for American workers and for American families.”

American families seem to disagree, Mitt.

According to Gallup, “Satisfaction With Personal Life” is at an all time high 90% … up from 78% during the Obama years.



With Trump’s record of successes, maybe Mitt concluded that he had to join the La Resistance … otherwise his predictions might look foolish.

I guess that just tweeting as Pierre Delecto wasn’t enough.
