Romney: ‘I Don’t Think’ Trump Will Be the GOP Nominee

In an appearance at the Washington Ideas Forum in Washington, DC on Wednesday, 2012 Republican nominee former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) pledged to support the eventual GOP nominee, but he said he did not believe it would current front-runner Donald Trump.

Romney criticized Trump on foreign policy grounds, in particular for his proposal on how to handle the ISIS threat in Syria.

“I will support the Republican nominee. I don’t think that’s going to be Donald Trump,” Romney said. “My party has historically nominated someone who is a mainstream conservative and someone who has a foundation in foreign policy that gives people confidence that they can guide the ship of state in troubled waters. Mr. Trump over the weekend, I think on ’60 Minutes’ said that he thought it would be a good idea to let ISIS take over Syria and then we could pick up the pieces. I thought that was both absurd and dangerous and I just don’t think that kind of proposal is going to lead him to become our nominee.”
