“Mitt’s a loser. He’s been a loser for a long time,” Trump said in the video.
“He has no respect in the Republican Party,” Trump continued about Romney. “He’s a terrible Republican. I think he’s terrible for the nation also. I saw him marching with the Antifa and the groups down in Washington with his mask on—you couldn’t even see his face. They were marching, and these were real terrorists—very bad people he was marching with. He didn’t even know the difference.”

"I call him Kryptonite. If he endorses somebody, that person loses…I had a couple people I endorsed, they took a big lead, and then all of a sudden I saw their lead was gone. What happened? They associated them with Mitt Romney," Trump continued.
"Once they became disassociated, they went back up. But in those cases, they truly wanted to be disassociated. Mitt’s a loser,” he said.
Romney voted to impeach Trump and has continued to be an outspoken opponent of the former president.
Trump has now returned the favor, calling for Utah to defeat Romney in the state's Senate primary.
Romney won a seat in the Senate during Trump's time in the White House following his endorsement, though the former president now speaks much differently about the Utah senator.
The battle may continue as Romney calls for GOP candidates to unite against Trump and the 2024 election moves forward.
