GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago.

Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.”

Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election.

“Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening.

Romney’s statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made about the president.

“If Trump had said 4 years ago the things he says today about the KKK, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled, I would NOT have accepted his endorsement,” Romeny tweeted in March 2016.


Trump endorsed Romney in the 2012 presidential election, calling for voters to head to the polls to vote for an absolutely “fantastic” candidate.

Romney has also had some other harsh words for the president in 2016.
