Sen. Vance Fires Back At Sen. Romney’s Criticism Of Trump Support

Sen. JD Vance (R-OH) didn’t mince words when responding to Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) criticism of his support for former President Donald Trump. Vance said Romney was “the least equipped” to judge others’ interactions with Trump.

“He attacked him and then he begged him for a job and then he attacked them again and begged him for endorsement,” Vance said after doing several studies. The Ohio senator advised Romney to focus on legislating and serving Utahns rather than attacking colleagues which Vance deemed “counterproductive.”

Romney had called the show of support by Vance and other Republicans at Trump’s New York trial “demeaning.” He found it particularly inappropriate given the allegations involved paying an adult film star.

Vance was one of several GOP senators who attended the trial. Others included Sens. Rick Scott (R-FL.) and Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) as well as House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA).
In a Fox News interview, Vance said he was there “to support a friend.” He called Trump’s legal situation “a very depressing way to spend five, six weeks of your life when you know that you’re innocent.”
