Donald Trump unleashed the beast on Mitt Romney! The GOP candidate got his chance to fire back at Mitt after he blasted Trump in a heated speech about the 2016 election — and Donald called Mitt a chicken! See what else he had to say back to Mitt here!
Well that didn’t take long! Just hours after Mitt Romney blasted Donald Trump in a speech regarding this year’s election, Trump got his chance to retaliate — and boy did he! Donald called Mitt a “choke artist” and declared that he “chickened out” of this year’s election because he was scared of Donald. He definitely had no issue telling Mitt who’s boss!
Donald mentioned that after a failed candidacy in 2012, Mitt was considering running again in this year’s election, but ultimately he “chickened out” — which Donald was extremely happy about. “I’ll tell you the real reason he chickened out, it was me,” he said. “When I heard Mitt was going to run, I said, ‘He can’t run. He’s a choke artist.’ We cannot take another loss and Mitt is indeed a choke artist. He would’ve gotten beaten very badly.”
Before Donald really dug into Mitt, he addressed Mitt’s diss speech by saying, “I’ll just address is quickly because it’s irrelevant. Mitt is a failed candidate, he failed horribly. That was a race that should have been won. I don’t know what happened to him, he disappeared and I wasn’t happy about it because I am not a fan of Obama.”
Donald was referring to the loss Mitt suffered to Barack Obama in the 2012 election, which Trump not only endorsed but also fundraised lots of money for. But although Mitt greatly appreciated it then, Donald made sure to clarify that Mitt “was begging for my endorsement.” He couldn’t stop there, of course, and added quite the shocking statement: “I could’ve said, ‘Mitt, drop to your knees.'” As if that wasn’t harsh enough, he proceeded to call Mitt a “disaster of a candidate”!

Whoa, Donald has proved he knows how to issue the insults, but these may be his most intense blasts yet! But it’s hard to blame Trump for laying out some brutal disses, because that’s exactly what Mitt did to him. After declaring that Trump is a “phony” and a “fraud,” Mitt said that Donald’s policies and ideas would only diminish America’s safety. He even mocked all of the failed Trump businesses Donald put his name on! Mitt was fully aware he had laid some major disses on Donald, so he tuned in to Trump’s retaliation too — and immediately had a response!
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

Looks like we may have an all-out Republican war on our hands! It’s almost crazy to think that at one point these two were supporting each other, because that’s exactly opposite of what’s happening now. If Donald ends up being the GOP candidate, he definitely won’t count on a vote from Mitt — then again, Trump probably doesn’t want a “chicken” voting for him anyway!
