President Trump took a shot at Sen. Mitt Romney on Monday and praised Democrats for their unity in the impeachment inquiry — while calling on Republicans to get “tougher and fight.”
“I think they’re lousy politicians,” Trump said of Democrats during a Cabinet meeting at the White House. “But two things they have. They’re vicious and they stick together. They don’t have Mitt Romney in their midst. They don’t have people like that.”
Speaking of the inquiry House Democrats launched, Trump said he watched a “couple of people on television” who talked about “what a phony deal it is. What a phony investigation it is.”
“And Republicans have to get tougher and fight,” Trump went on. “We have some that are great fighters, but they have to get tougher and fight because the Democrats are trying to hurt the Republican party for the election, which is coming up, where we’re doing very well.”
While Trump slammed Romney for his disloyalty, he praised Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), who defended the president on his phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that sparked the inquiry.
