Trump says he wants Senator Orrin Hatch to seek re-election in Utah

Trump says he wants Senator Orrin Hatch to seek re-election in Utah

There are 1 comment on the Reuters story from 3 hrs ago, titled In slap at Romney, Trump says he wants Orrin Hatch to run for re-election.

"Whether it's confirming judges, passing tax reform or accomplishing any part of his agenda, Hatch is a key player in getting anything done", Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock said late Sunday.

As a candidate, Donald Trump called for congressional term limits.

In the report, Romney said it was Hatch himself who recommended him to run for the position but is now unsure of his own decision to retire.

James Curry is a political scientist at the University of Utah. When Trump was asked if he wants Hatch to run for an eighth term in 2018, he replied, "Yes".




Trump called Hatch in October to and requested he run again, sources familiar with the call told Politico. "Morally different universes", Romney tweeted, following up with a Facebook post urging Trump to "act now for the good of the country". During their event Monday at the Utah State Capitol, Trump said he hoped the Utahn would stay in the Senate "for a very long time to come". Asked by reporters whether he had encouraged Hatch to seek re-election, Trump answered, "Yes".

Although Trump aides attributed the president's efforts to his bond with Hatch, those close to Romney believe the president's primary motivation is to keep Romney, whom he publicly sparred with throughout the 2016 campaign, from entering the Senate, according to Politico. He's playing the members of the American public for suckers.

Such concern apparently exists outside the White House as well. The former MA governor's criticisms sparked rumors that he and a handful of never-Trumpers would seek to oust Trump at the Republican National Convention. Rex Tillerson. Perhaps as a reaction to that particular humiliation, Romney has carried on his criticism of Trump, saying that the White House's response to the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville "caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn", and bashing Trump for pulling out of the Paris climate agreement.

"If Steve had a choice between Orrin Hatch and Mitt Romney, he would pick Hatch 10 times out of 10", the source close to Bannon told the Washington Examiner.
