The White House says President Trump has talked with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who has said he is open to running for Senate in Utah.
Trump and Romney spoke Thursday evening. TheWhite House said they spoke about Sen. Orin Hatch, who’s retirement leaves an opportunity for Romney, who has been critical of the President since he was elected.
Trump had previously asked Hatch to run again.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, Romney said Trump was “a fraud” who didn’t have “the temperament nor the judgment to be president.”
