Trump Mocks Romney with Election Loss Footage: Could Have Won If He Fought Obama Like He’s Fighting Me

President Donald Trump hit back at Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah)’s criticism following the release of the Mueller report by trolling him with footage from his 2012 presidential election loss to former President Barack Obama on Saturday.

“If @MittRomney spent the same energy fighting Barack Obama as he does fighting Donald Trump, he could have won the race (maybe)!” the president wrote on Twiter alongside the video, which includes a compilation of news coverage from election night 2016 and a defeated Romney.

Watch the video below:

President Trump’s swipe at the senator comes after Romney shared his reaction to special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia on Friday.

As IJR Blue reported, he said in a statement, “I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President.”

The president wasn’t alone in firing back at Romney following his critical comments. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee sounded off on the 2012 Republican presidential candidate on Friday night, saying, “It makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS,” as IJR Red reported.

Mueller’s report rocked Washington, D.C. on Thursday after the over 400-page document was released to the public following much anticipation that was built up over the almost 2-year investigation. In his findings, the special counsel outlined that no American attempted to collude with Russia during the 2016 election.

President Trump’s 2020 campaign and the Republican National Committee declared victory after the report found no collusion and Attorney General William Barr declared he wouldn’t pursue obstruction charges, as IJR Red noted.

Many conservatives have since been turning the tables on the Obama administration, including President Trump himself, after the report revealed the former president was warned about Russian election meddling and took little action to intervene.

Wonder whose skirt Romney is hiding behind to openly criticize Trump when he clammed up like a little sissy during his run against Barry in 2012. He had ample opportunity to shut Barry out; but cowered and crawled off. Spineless and pathetic!

mitt is only interested in going along with the crowd, instead of being a man. Trump is correct, 2012 could’ve ended much differently if mitt had a pair.
