Trump Trolls Romney for Marching With Protesters: 'Tremendous Sincerity, What a Guy'
President sarcastically praises Utah Senator
President Donald Trump scolded Mitt Romney after he marched with protesters to the White House, sarcastically applauding the Utah senator for his "sincerity."
Trump tweeted Monday morning:
“Tremendous sincerity, what a guy.“
Tremendous sincerity, what a guy. Hard to believe, with this kind of political talent, his numbers would “tank” so badly in Utah! https://t.co/KqHsHmSRKo— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 8, 2020
"Hard to believe, with this kind of political talent, his numbers would ‘tank’ so badly in Utah!”
Trump shared the video of Romney marching with protesters, where the Senator said he was there for the cause of ending “violence, and brutality, and to make sure people understand that Black Lives Matter.”
Romney posted an image of him wearing a face mask with the crowd.
To score more points, the Utah Senator also tweeted a photo of his father during the late 1960s marching with civil rights protesters.

As Neon Nettle reported over the weekend, Romney and former President George W. Bush are not going to support the reelection of President Trump in November.
Bush won’t support the president’s reelection, and former Trump 2016 rival Jeb Bush has yet to decide how he will vote, the New York Times, citing “people familiar with their thinking,” reported.
