Failed Republican presidential candidate Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) announced on Friday that he would choose to vote for a Democrat before voting for former President Donald Trump or Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy — sparking increased criticism of the RINO senator on social media, asserting that these comments confirm Romney is actually a Democrat.

Romney made the comments during an interview with CBS News reporter Norah O’Donnell, where he stated that he would be “happy” to vote for any of the establishment Republicans running in the primary, and “happy to vote for a number of the Democrats too.”

The failed presidential candidate made sure to emphasize that he would not choose Trump or Ramaswamy — the two populist, America First candidates in the race.

“I’d be happy to support any one of the Republicans — maybe not Vivek, but the others that are running would be acceptable to me,” Romney said.

“I’d be happy to vote for a number of the Democrats too,” he added. “I mean, would be an upgrade from, in my opinion, from Donald Trump, and perhaps also from Joe Biden.”

However, Romney noted that he likes President Joe Biden.

“I find him a very charming, engaging person,” he said regarding Biden, adding: “In some places, I agree with him, but in most places, I disagree with him. I think he has made all sorts of mistakes.”

“I would like to see someone else run,” Romney concluded about Biden.

These comments were not shocking to most conservatives on social media, as they have been calling Romney out for being a RINO — Republican In Name Only — and asserting that he is basically a Democrat for some time now, especially after Romney voted to impeach Trump.

Ramaswamy responded to Romney’s comments in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Turns out he’s opposed to America-First itself, not just one man. Newsflash, Mitt: I didn’t vote for you either & I still call on your niece Ronna to resign,” he wrote, referring to Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel — who Ramaswamy has criticized for her repeated failures to rally conservative voters in recent elections and her choice to have Democrat journalists moderate GOP debates.

Romney’s comments come after he announced that he would not be seeking re-election next year. While the senator claims that his decision was made because he wants the “next generation of leaders” to take over, many have speculated that he does not believe he could win re-election after consistently siding with the Democrats against his own voter base.
