>> Donald Trump gave his full support to Mitt Romney's Senate run in Utah on Monday. The latest twist in what at times has been a tumultuous relationship. The President tweeted Romney, quote, will make a great Senator. And the former GOP presidential candidate was quick to thank him in a show of public harmony between the two former rivals.
Romney has been an outspoken critic of Trump during the 2016 election campaign. He described him as a fraud who was playing the American public for fools. Trump fired back saying Romney quote, chokes like a dog in his 2012 campaign against Barack Obama, only to then briefly consider Romney as Secretary of State.
Name calling aside, now they are moving toward a united front. Congressional elections loom later this year, and the president has repeatedly stressed the need to get more republicans elected to push his policies through. It's an agenda Romney said last week he largely supports.>> I'm with the President's domestic policy agenda of low taxes and low regulation, and smaller government, pushing back against the bureaucrats.
By and large by the way, his policies are very similar to those I campaigned for.>> However, Romney also warned he'll have no hesitation calling out President Trump if needed.>> I will fight for Utah.
