GOP Establishment Seeks to Avert Donald Trump Nomination

March 03, 2016

In the latest attempt by the Republican establishment to derail Donald Trump’s presidential run, former Massachusetts governor and one-time Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is giving a speech today at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City in which he is calling Trump a "phony" and a "fraud." In Romney’s prepared remarks, he writes about Trump: "His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the American public for suckers." Donald Trump has won 319 delegates so far—nearly 100 more delegates than any other candidate.
