Incoming Senator Mitt Romney briefly spoke with reporters in Washington, D.C. on Thursday ahead of being sworn in to Congress.
Romney was asked if he felt like he had stabbed President Trump in the back with his critical op-ed, especially after Trump endorsed his 2018 campaign.
“I wrote in the Utah papers that I would work with the president on places where we agree. Where we disagreed, I’d point that out. If the president were to say things that were divisive, I’d call him out on that,” said Romney. “Where we agree we come together, where there are disagreements we express those openly and honestly. That allows people to have trust in one another and I look forward to being able to have a trusting relationship with the president and with others despite differences from time to time.”
