WASHINGTON – Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, taunted President Donald Trump on Thursday for his continued efforts to continue skepticism about the results of the presidential race and not to make a decision.
In a tweet, Romney said Trump’s team failed to show any widespread fraud and allegedly pressured the president to “overturn people’s will and reverse the election” over state and local officials.
“It is hard to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting US president,” Romney said.
His remarks came after Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, made unfounded claims during a chaotic press conference on Thursday that voter fraud was coordinated nationally despite no evidence.
Romney congratulated Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris for the presidential election on Saturday. Romney told reporters on November 10 that Biden must be given the green light to begin a transition, which the head of the General Services Administration has so far refused to do.
Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential candidate who lost to President Bark Obama, has been a frequent critic of Trump and the senator has been taking those comments in the wake of the election. He voted with Democrats earlier this year to convict Trump in a Senate impeachment trial.
