President Donald Trump on Monday indicated that he would support Sen. However, the 83-year-old politician's refusal to leave the office has resulted in Romney's inner circle blaming Trump by claiming that the president is not comfortable with the idea of the former presidential candidate becoming a senator.
During the 2016 presidential primary race, he labeled Trump a fraud and a phony in a University of Utah speech.
"If I could get a really outstanding person to run for my position, I might very well consider it", Hatch told the National Journal.
Romney, 70, a former governor of MA who spends a great deal of time in Utah, has been expecting to run for Hatch's seat in a state that Republicans typically win. "I don't know that he knows what he's going to get with Romney, but it's not going to be what he's got with Hatch", Jowers reportedly said. "We hope you will continue to serve your state and your country in the Senate for a very long time to come", he said. And indeed, Hatch was reportedly telling friends he wouldn't.

Obama Seemingly Makes Dig At Trump's Twitter Use
While in France over the weekend, former President Barack Obama just couldn't help but take a verbal shot at his successor. On Friday, while visiting India, Obama also took veiled shots at Trump.
Despite the Breitbart chairman's declarations of "war" against the Republican establishment, Hatch - the longest serving current Republican senator and "ally" to Senate Majority Leader (and Breitbart nemesis) Mitch McConnell - is a more preferable choice than Romney. But when the press followed up with a question about whether Trump's enthusiasm for Hatch was meant to deter Romney, he demurred, replying, "He's a good man. Mitt's a good man".
Hatch, the second senator to endorse Trump during the presidential campaign, has said he's running again but has not announced a final decision. He's playing the members of the American public for suckers. The former MA governor's criticisms sparked rumors that he and a handful of never-Trumpers would seek to oust Trump at the Republican National Convention.
Romney made clear that he took a dim view of Trump's endorsement on Monday of Republican Roy Moore for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama that will be decided in a special election next week.
He charged that Trump's domestic policies would lead to recession and his foreign policies would make the world more unsafe.
