Republican Utah Sen. Mitt Romney ripped President Donald Trump for not accepting the results of the 2020 presidential election in a tweet late Thursday night
“Having failed to make even a plausible case of widespread fraud or conspiracy before any court of law, the President has now resorted to overt pressure on state and local officials to subvert the will of the people, and overturn the election. It is difficult to imagine a worse, more undemocratic action by a sitting American President,” Romney said in his tweet.
