Incoming Republican Senator Mitt Romney of Utah writes that President Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” In a New Year’s Day op-ed published by The Washington Post, Romney says he supports Trump’s policies—including tax cuts, deregulation and the appointment of conservatives judges to federal courts. But Romney says that Trump has failed to show “honesty and integrity” as president, writing, “With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring.” Romney is among the freshmen members of Congress set to be sworn in by Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday.
