Ten days after speaking out loudly against Donald Trump, the 2012 Republican nominee for President will join John Kasich on the campaign trail here on Monday, as Mitt Romney will step up his efforts to stop Trump from winning the Buckeye State in a primary vote on Tuesday.
“Donald Trump is a phony,” was just part of a litany of jabs that Romney made at Trump earlier this month, all part of a bid by some in the GOP establishment to slow Trump.
If Trump had said 4 years ago the things he says today about the KKK, Muslims, Mexicans, disabled, I would NOT have accepted his endorsement
“I still have to get rid of Kasich,” Trump said. “He would be so bad as President.”
Trump will return to Ohio for a rally in Youngstown on Monday night, at about the same time that Romney will join Kasich in a final event in Kasich’s home town of Westerville, just outside of the state capital of Columbus.
