Trump: Romney Would’ve Defeated Obama If He Fought Against Him ‘Like He Does Against Me’

President Donald Trump blasted Mitt Romney again to reporters at today’s lengthy Cabinet meeting, in response to the incoming Utah senator’s op-ed seriously criticizing the President’s lack of character.

Trump again said Romney should “be more of a team player,” saying, “I endorsed him. He thanked me profusely. Very nice. But I am surprised.”

Trump defended his record in office so far before coming back to Romney, claiming he has “great popularity in Utah,’ and even getting in this 2012 jab:

“I will say this. If he fought really hard against President Obama like he does against me, he would have won the election. Does that make sense to you? If he fought the way he fights me, I’m telling you, he would have won the election. But I think he’s going to end up being a team player. I think he agrees with many of the things that we’ve done and many of the things that we have in mind. We’ll see what happens.”
