NEW YORK, Oct. 5 (EUROPE PRESS) –

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, has described the Republican senator and former White House candidate Mitt Romney as “pompous cretin” for suggesting that the president was leading a “political persecution” against his possible Democratic rival in the 2020 elections , former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Since Trump has asked China to investigate a single American citizen,” Romney posted on his Twitter account this past Friday, “he is a political opponent in full nomination of the Democratic Party, everything invites us to think that we are facing persecution. policy Considering the present, the shameless decision taken by the president to ask China and Ukraine to investigate Biden is wrong and discouraging. ”

Trump has responded vigorously to Romney's comments – with whom he held talks at the beginning of his term for a possible position – on the same social network. “Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous cretin who has been bothering me from the beginning, except when he begged me to support him for the Senate (which I did) and when he begged me to nominate him to be secretary of state (which I did not do ) “, he said.

Next, Trump has insisted that his talks with both governments were not related to Biden. “So someone wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian president was perfectly correct and that my comments to China were about corruption.”

“If Mitt had worked so hard during his career against (former US President Barack) Obama, he would have won. Unfortunately, his legs were shaking!”
