Recall all the highly uncomplimentary things Mitt Romney said about Donald Trump throughout the campaign? How could we forget? It wasn’t all just normal campaign talk, either. Mr. Romney took swipes at Mr. Trump claiming he’s not too bright as well as questioning his integrity. Not the sort of stuff that makes for warm, cordial, trusting relationships.
Add to that the fact that Mitt Romney hails from the more liberal wing of the Republican Party, and you have to wonder what these two men might have in common, or how they can even speak to each other.
But politics as practiced in America is a business steeped in intrigue and shifting alliances or coalitions. While he’s new at being a politician, Mr. Trump is clearly a man who knows how to negotiate deals.
So what’s going on with the negotiations between Trump and Romney? See page two.
