( – On Wednesday, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) stated that the fact that he had attended former President Donald Trump’s meeting with Senate Republicans last week did not mean that he had changed his mind on him. 

On Tuesday, during an interview with CNN anchor Manu Raju, he pointed out that he had not attended the meeting to show support for the former President and that instead, he had only been in attendance to hear what his plans are for if he wins reelection. 

He pointed out that he drew the line when someone had been found to have sexually assaulted someone else and that he would not want that person to be the United States president. This is a reference to the civil jury’s decision as Trump was found to be liable for sexual battery against the writer E. Jean Carroll. 

Last week, Trump visited the U.S. Capitol for the first time since the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol attack, where he met with Congress Republicans for both chambers. This was also the first official meeting that he has had with Senate Republicans since his time in office. 

Romney, who is one of Trump’s most vocal critics, has slammed the character of the former President and has stated that he would “absolutely not” be voting for Trump in the upcoming election. Earlier this year, when asked about how he had made the choice to not vote for Trump, he argued that it came down to “two factors,” character and policy. 

Romney pointed out that having a president whose character is lacking is going to have a great impact on the character of the country, which is something that he had considered.
