(Report) Trump Looking To Block Mitt Romney From Running For Office

President Donald Trump is looking to block former Massachusetts Governor from running for U.S. Senate.

President Donald Trump is looking to block former Massachusetts Governor from running for U.S. Senate. Why? Trump still remembers that Romney called Trump a 'conman' and Trump is hopelessly petty.

Donald Trump is going all out to persuade seven-term Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch to seek reelection — a push aimed in no small part at keeping the president’s longtime nemesis, Mitt Romney, out of the Senate. Romney has been preparing to run for Hatch’s seat on the long-held assumption that the 83-year-old would retire. Yet Hatch, the longest-serving Republican senator in history, is now refusing to rule out another campaign — a circumstance Romney’s infuriated inner circle blames squarely on the president.

Trump is unhappy that Romney referred to him as a 'fraud'.

thin the White House that Romney in the Senate could make Trump’s life difficult. During the 2016 campaign, the former Massachusetts governor emerged as the de-facto leader of the GOP establishment’s “Never Trump” campaign, delivering a nationally-watched speech in which he blasted candidate Trump as a “phony, a fraud” and implored the party to stop him.
