Former governor/aspiring Senate candidate Mitt Romney is pretty sure Donald Trump‘s presidency will last a second term.
Romney spoke with high-level political figures and business leaders yesterday at an annual retreat in Utah. As he and his colleagues discussed the current state of American leadership, Romney predicted that Trump will “easily” win the GOP’s nomination and will “solidly” win re-election in 2020, for a variety of reasons.
“I think that not just because of the strong economy and the fact that people are going to see increasingly rising wages,” said Romney. “But I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who’s presiding over a growing economy.”
The remarks are interesting considering the fact that Romney’s relationship with Trump is…complicated to say the least. The former Massachusetts governor called Trump a “con man” and a “fake” during the 2016 election, and Trump returned fire by calling him a choke artist over his failed 2012 bid for the presidency against Barack Obama.
