Sen. Mitt Romney calls Trump a ‘RINO’ after his comments on ‘termination’ of Constitution

Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) has taken aim at former President Donald Trump and labelled him as a “RINO” (Republican In Name Only) for his recent comments suggesting that interference in the 2020 election allows for the “termination” of the Constitution.

Romney, who has previously been labeled a RINO by Trump and other Republicans, urged the GOP to distance themselves from Trump – who recently announced he would be running for president in 2024.

“Well, the Republican Party has long been the party of the Constitution. So when President Trump says he wants to suspend the Constitution, he goes from being MAGA to being RINO,” Romney said.

Over the weekend, Trump said on Truth Social, “A Massive Fraud of this type and magnitude allows for the termination of all rules, regulations, and articles, even those found in the Constitution.”

Several other Republicans also criticized Trump’s post.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said of Trump comments: “I don’t know why anybody would say something like that; certainly not an ex-president. I just think it’s irresponsible.”

“It’s a fantasy,” Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) said. “I consider it kind of a Hail Mary to maintain some hope when everybody knows it’s not the case. We’re the party of the Constitution; it’s not going to happen.”

“There are no exceptions to the Constitution,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) told HuffPost. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) issued a similar response, saying that “The Constitution is enduring and it will be for millennia to come.”
