Donald Trump: ‘Very Surprised’ That Mitt Romney Turned Down Debate Invitation

Trump: ‘Very Surprised’ That Mitt Romney Turned Down Debate Invitation

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room Thursday, Donald Trump was flummoxed that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney turned down attending his debate. “I was surprised because as you know, he wants my endorsement very, very badly. He was very nice, he called me but I was surprised. If I was losing in the polls, I wouldn’t be saying no to anybody.”

“I was particularly surprised with Mitt Romney because he wants my endorsement very badly,” Trump added. “As you know, I like him a lot. I think he’s a terrific guy, but I was really surprised that he didn’t want to do the debate and i’ll tell you, I was very impressed with Newt, who’s leading in the polls, immediately said I want to do that debate. That sounds great.”
