Mitt Romney Calls Trump A ‘Phony & ‘Fraud’ In Leaked Speech [VIDEO]

Ex-presidential GOP candidate Mitt Romney is expected to call Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump a β€œphony” during his Thursday morning speech at the University of Utah. According to excerpts obtained by the Associated Press, the former Massachusetts governor will argue that Trump’s campaign promises β€œare as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” which has been under investigation for fraud. Romney is also set to say Trump β€œhas neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president.” As he is wont to do, Trump fired back early Thursday with a series of tweets, asking, β€œWhy did Mitt Romney BEG me for my endorsement four years ago?” and β€œI am the only one who can beat Hillary Clinton. I am not a Mitt Romney, who doesn’t know how to win. Hillary wants no part of Trump.” Just last week, Romney told Fox News that the real-estate mogul has been β€œaggressive in avoiding any discussion of his taxes” and likely is hiding a β€œbombshell” in his tax returns. Romney has not yet endorsed a presidential candidate, but recently began to speak out against the frontrunner.
