Utah Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney predicted President Donald Trump will win the 2020 presidential election in a speech Friday.
Despite Romney’s past criticism of Trump, the former Massachusetts Governor sounded confident that Trump would be “easily” re-elected, citing the “strong economy” and “rising wages” as reasons for why he thought Trump will win. Romney also said its likely Democrats will nominate someone who will make it easier for Trump to win in 2020.
“I think President Trump will be re-nominated by my party easily, and I think he’ll be reelected solidly,” Romney said in a speech at to a group of major GOP donors in Utah, according to Politico.
Trump gave Romney his “full support and endorsement” for his senate bid in February, despite the two having differences in the past. Since Romney said that Trump has “exceeded” his expectations in a May interview after the two had a public reconciliation during Trump’s presidential transition. The president also endorsed Romney in the 2012 presidential election, calling Romney a “fantastic” candidate.
“I think that not just because of the strong economy and because people are increasingly seeing rising wages, but I think it’s also true because I think our Democrat friends are likely to nominate someone who is really out of the mainstream of American thought and will make it easier for a president who is presiding over a growing economy,” Romney continued.
Romney is expected to win the election for Utah Senate but has to defeat state Rep. Mike Kennedy in the June 26 runoff for the GOP nomination.
