(FeaturedNews.com) – Republican Senator Mitt Romney from Utah, who has announced that at the end of his current term in the Senate he would be retiring, warned that former President Donald Trump would potentially “impose his will” on the country if he wins back the White House in 2024.
Romney was first elected to serve in the Senate in 2019. Before his time in the Senate, he had served as the Massachusetts governor from 2003 to 2007 and had been the Republican presidential nominee in 2012. Over the last few years, Romney has come out as a vocal critic of the former President, and the direction that the Republican party has taken.
On Sunday, Romney made an appearance on NBC News’ Meet the Press where he warned that based on Trump’s past and current behaviors the forecast for what he might do after the presidential election, especially if reelected is not good, despite what he has claimed during his rallies. He added that Trump’s behavior suggests that he is someone who will impose his will on the United States.
Romney also pointed out regarding Trump’s call for people to march on the Capitol on January 6, that he had not selected a random day, and that his authoritarian interests are clear. As he argued during a potential second term in office Trump is guaranteed to try and impose those views.
Trump is the frontrunner of the 2024 Republican presidential race, with a national polling average that shows he has the support of more than 50 percent of Republican voters.
