Trump Says Why He Did Not Pick Romney For White House Task Force

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

President Trump revealed during a Sunday press conference at the White House that he intentionally left Republican Senator Mitt Romney out of the new White House task force due their own going grudge.

As CNN reports, Trump selected all other Republican senators to join him in determining the best way for reopening the economy and the country amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The president was specifically asked if the exclusion signals a grudge held against Romney, the only Republican who backed Trump’s impeachment effort, and he answered in the affirmative.

“Yeah, it does,” Trump said. “I’m not a fan of Mitt Romney.”

“I don’t really want his advice,” he continued.

Here’s more, from the report:

Nearly 100 lawmakers from both parties — including all of Romney’s Senate Republican colleagues — were tapped to join “the Opening Up America Again Congressional Group,” according to a list released by the White House.

The President reviewed the list of which lawmakers would be on the task force before it was finalized, an official previously told CNN. Romney was not included and was not asked to be on the call with other senators, another official confirmed.

The President’s comments about Romney on Sunday mark just the latest slight in their contentious relationship — one that grew increasingly tense during the Senate’s impeachment trial of Trump after Romney broke ranks with the Republican Party to vote to convict the President on the charge of abuse of power.

The President responded by attacking Romney as a “failed presidential candidate.”
