Romney: Trump as President Would Bring About ‘Trickle-Down Racism’

romneyMitt Romney affirmed again in an interview tonight that he absolutely will not support Donald Trump for president, and he cited his “racist” views as a major reason why.

“A person of that nature,” he told Wolf Blitzer, “should not be the one who becomes the example for coming generations or an example of America in the world.”

He warned that because presidents set an example, Trump could bring “trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny––all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America.”

Blitzer asked Romney point-blank if he thinks Trump is a racist.
