Trump: “Romney’s Pissed At Me Because I Refused To Run With That Loser Back In 2012”

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump responded to Mitt Romney at an event in Portland, Maine on Thursday. Romney, the Republican Party’s 2012 presidential nominee, had attacked Trump earlier in the day, calling him a “fraud” who was “playing the members of the American public for suckers.” But the outspoken New York billionaire said Romney “begged” for his endorsement in 2012. “I don’t know what happened to him,” Trump said. “You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said Mitt ‘drop to your knees.’ He would have dropped to his knees.”

“But, I guess that’s what happens when you have the most powerful political organization behind you, the most fierce political machinery backing you up, and then you blow it because you’re too incompetent to see that you have no business in politics whatsoever,” Trump added. “The funny thing to me is, you have people in this world who are born to win at everything, kind of like me. And then you have two other types of people. One, the mediocre ones, who can study and improve themselves and do something great with their lives, and then the other type, which is Mitt and that type of people just sucks at everything. He’s a born loser, and someone has convinced him that he can change that, probably just to have a good laugh. I’m sorry buddy, but you can’t.”

The media mogul added, “So, when you finally realize that, you have no other choice than to draw attention to yourself by insulting the winners, which is, again – me. You’re reduced to becoming an attention whore who can’t live with the fact that he’s a failure and starts doing the only thing he can, which is talk crap about legitimate politicians and businessmen. And make no mistake about it, folks – the only reason Mitt is being loud right now is because he can’t stand the fact that I’m succeeding in something that’s he’s failed. Like I said, he virtually begged me to endorse him, even run with him, back in 2012. But, I knew then the same thing I still know to this day – you are who you’re with, and Donald Trump, ladies and gentlemen, is not a loser.”

“I’m a better businessman than he is, I’m a better conversationalist than he is, I’m better at everything he’s ever tried doing, honestly, and now, I’m also a better politician than him, not that that’s particularly difficult. Oh, I almost forgot – I also have better hair than he does,” Trump added, causing laughter. “But seriously, he should get off my case or I might actually consider quitting politics, you know, because I’m so hurt over what he’s saying,” the businessman continued jokingly, causing even more laughs. “Anyway, I don’t hate you Mitt, I perfectly understand why you’re doing what you’re doing and it’s quite all right, you have every right be pissed. Even though you’ve been holding a grudge since 2012, it’s still ok. But, it’s time for you to run along, little buddy, because the grown-ups have to talk about some serious issues here. It’s time for milk and cookies.”
