After Mitt Romney called Donald Trump a phony and fraud yesterday, the attacks on the billionaire Republican presidential front runner continued at a GOP debate in Detroit.
The moderator also asked Trump, how he answers criticisms by former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
“Well look, he was a failed candidate,” Trump explained, “He should’ve beaten President Obama very easily. He failed miserably, and it was embarrassment to everybody including the Republican party. He looked like he went away on a vacation the last month, so I don’t take that, and I guess he wants to be back in the game.”
If Romney and his allies succeed in bringing down Trump, the enraged New York business mogul is threatening to leave the party and run as an independent, taking his millions of supporters with him.
Romney’s proposed solution for stopping Trump is for voters to back whichever candidate has the best shot at defeating him in each of the state primaries or caucuses that remain.
Democrats are likely watching with delight the Republican infighting that surpasses even the intraparty turmoil that gripped the GOP in 1968 and brought Richard Nixon to the White House.
