2012 GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney blasted 2016 front runner Donald Trump via Twitter today, calling Trump “disgusting,” also claiming Trump has “disqualified” himself from the White House.
According to The Hill:
“Mitt Romney on Monday assailed Donald Trump‘s response to support from former Ku Klux Klansman David Duke as rendering him unfit for the White House.
“A disqualifying and disgusting response by @realDonaldTrump to the KKK,” tweeted Romney, the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee.
“[Trump’s] coddling of repugnant bigotry is not in the character of America,” Romney added.
Trump evaded questions about Duke’s support during a Sunday interview with CNN, saying he doesn’t fully understand the positions of the former KKK grand wizard.
“I don’t know anything about David Duke,” he told anchor Jake Tapper on “State of the Union.” “I don’t know anything about what you’re talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. I know nothing about white supremacist.”
Trump on Monday said a “lousy earpiece” caused a misunderstanding during the interview.”
