“Donald Trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works. To create jobs for the American people. He’s done it here in Nevada. He’s done it across the country. He understands that our economy is facing threats from abroad. He’s one of the few people who stood up and said China has been cheating. They’ve taken jobs from Americans. They haven’t played fair. We have to have a President who will stand up to cheaters.” – Mitt Romney
After Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney in February 2012, Romney stood before the world and stated what is written above, seen in the video below.
It is now 2016 and Donald Trump is the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nominee and Mitt Romney has just sold his soul to the “establishment devils” as he has been bought and paid for and is now being used like a puppet by the GOP political establishment in an all-out, desperate and panicked attempt to stop what is being called the “Trump Phenomenon.”
Romney is now calling Trump a “Phony,” a “fraud” saying Trump is playing Americans for suckers…… yet after seeing Romney praise Trump in the video above we have to ask…. who is being phony? Who is the fraud? Who is attempting to “play Americans?”
Here is another flashback, via The American Mirror, showing Mitt Romney at the Washington Ideas Forum in September stating that he would “support the Republican nominee.” He went on to say he didn’t think Trump would be that nominee because his party, the Republicans, has “historically, has nominated a mainstream conservative.”
Last but not least, one more flashback…. whether you love Trump, hate him, support him or support another candidate, what this clip from an Oprah appearance by Trump in 1988 shows that his positions on the economy, the very things that Romney praised Trump for in 2012, are the same. While Trump’s positions on other topics has changed over the years, he is honest in his criticisms over how America’s economy has been handled and he has held that stance for decades.
At ANP we have seen through the comments that many are supporting Trump and many are not, some trust him, some do not…. as it should be, every individual has the right, the obligation, to do what they feel is the right thing whether it is to vote, not vote, support a specific candidate or support another……. but there is no dispute that Trump is leading in the polls, has accrued the most delegatesand the majority of primary/caucus wins to date.
Whether any of us as individuals plan to support Trump or not, the majority of those who have already cast votes, via the GOP primaries and caucuses, have chosen Trump and for the establishment to attempt to sabotage, make back-room deals and buy and sell the souls of those who many once thought could be trusted, like Mitt Romney, is a blatant attempt to thwart the will of the people who have already spoken.
When GOP establishment leaders declare they would support Hillary Clinton over the frontrunner of the race in their own party…. we see who are really the frauds, the phonies and the ones trying to play Americans for suckers.
Then again, this is not the first time Republicans have betrayed their party, their constituents and their base, as this flashback image from Drudge reminds us.
[UPDATE] Trump has a very good question, via his Twitter account, where he asks “Why did Mitt Romney BEG me for my endorsement four years ago?”
