Donald Trump pleased Europeans are unhappy with him

How the Trump presidency made me a better American

The president wrote he would rather Romney "focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful".

Writing in the Washington Post, he said Mr Trump had not "risen to the mantle" of the presidency.

As for Romney, Paul argues that for senators in the president's own party to attack Trump's character is "not useful" and can harm "any ability to work together in the Senate to get things done". "A president should unite us and inspire us to follow 'our better angels'".

"To a great degree, a presidency shapes the public character of the nation", Romney added.

It is unclear whether any other Republican lawmakers will feel emboldened to criticize Trump ahead of his 2020 re-election bid or whether he will face serious challengers for the Republican Party's presidential nomination.

"The world needs American leadership, and it is in America's interest to provide it", Romney continued, pointing to the actions of autocratic regimes in Russian Federation and China as a threat to global stability.

He reminded those attending that he endorsed Romney in his Senate run.

"It is not that all of the president's policies have been misguided", he added, noting much of Trump's domestic policies and parts of his foreign policies are ones "mainstream Republicans have promoted for years".

For all his big words, Romney also says that he looks forward to "working on these priorities with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other senators". Romney said he will support Trump policies that he believes are "in the best interests of the country and my state".

Trump questioned whether Romney, who lost the 2012 presidential election, would now seek to play a similar role as the retiring Republican Senator Jeff Flake, among the few GOP lawmakers who have frequently criticised Trump's actions.

In addition to getting the Trump-backed criminal justice reform bill passed - his biggest legislative accomplishment to date - Lee was among few Republicans applauding the president's move to pull US troops out of Syria.

Not surprisingly, Trump quickly responded on Twitter to Romney's op-ed, asking, "is he a Flake?" referring to outgoing Arizona Sen.

The former presidential candidate and incoming junior senator wrote that Trump has "not risen to the mantle" of the presidency and that the president's lack of character is his "most glaring" shortfall.

In March of 2016, Romney called then-candidate Trump a "phony, a fraud" at a speech in Utah. "So sad, I wish everyone had the courage" Trump? had". This behavior is extremely disappointing coming from someone who was the Republican nominee for President in 2012. "Nor do I think that the Romney type of establishment, big government Republicanism is popular enough to win a general election".

Rory Cooper, a GOP strategist who helped lead the "Never Trump PAC" during the 2016 Republican primary, said publicly criticizing the president makes Republican votes back home unhappy and earns the ire of the president. McDaniel wrote in a tweet Wednesday that her uncle's "attack" played into the hands of Democrats and the media.

After Trump was elected, the two men seemed to mend fences and Romney was briefly considered for the position of secretary of state.
