Romney Releases Statement Troubled by the State of American Politics

Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah issued a harsh statement about the current state of US politics on Tuesday, calling it, “vile, vituperative [and] hate-filled.”  Additionally, his comments specifically criticized President Trump, Nancy Pelosi, and Keith Olbermann.

Senator Romney has long been a critic of President Trump and has not yet endorsed a candidate for president.  In his statement, he largely criticized President Trump for his recent actions and comments, including his attacks on Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice-presidential nominee.  President Trump has twice called Senator Harris a monster in statements.

Senator Romney also called out members of the Democratic Party for what he deems unacceptable behavior.  He specifically mentioned Nancy Pelosi’s decision to “tear up” the President’s State of the Union address, and Keith Olbermann’s claims that the President is a “terrorist.”

In his statement, he champions Presidential Candidate Joe Biden’s behavior by commenting that, despite attacks from his own party, Biden has refused “to stoop as low as others.”  He closes his statement with a call to “lower the heat” and return to the culture of “spirited debate” that American politics once had.
