Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney reacted to what now appears to be a false report from the Huffington Post suggesting that the failed Republican presidential candidate would endorse Marco Rubio before the Nevada caucuses.

“I did not anticipate endorsing but I probably will at some point,” Romney said. “I don’t know who yet.”

Romney made his remarks in an appearance at Babson College in Wellesley, Mass. which were reported by the Washington Post’s Robert Costa.

He specified that Americans were angry about the current state of the country, which is why candidates including Sen. Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump were gaining traction.

“We’re just mad as hell and won’t take it anymore,” he said.

Romney also warned that if both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders won their party’s nomination for president Mayor Michael Bloomberg would get in the race for an independent bid.

“He’d probably be getting in,” Romney said. “I think he would recognize that there is a chance for a centrist candidate.”
