Why did Donald Trump endorse Mitt Romney, anyway? At first glance they seem an odd couple. Mr. Trump’s pugnacity is more Gingrichian than Romneyesque. Trump likes to be wooed, yet Romney devoted little energy to cultivating the developer/reality show star.
Romney even dissed Trump by declining to appear at the debate Trump was supposed to moderate in December. Yet there was Trump at a Las Vegas podium on Feb. 2 bestowing a blessing on a smiling Romney. What gives?
One word: China.
RECOMMENDED: The Donald who would be king
“I love what Mitt was saying about China and the rest of the world, which is just absolutely ripping us off and trying to destroy this nation with a smile. And I think that Mitt Romney really sees China for what they are,” Trump told Ms. Van Susteren.
