The day before he reported for duty as a freshman U.S. Senator, Mitt Romney turned in his grades on the Chief Executive. In a Washington Post column Romney gave President Trump passing marks for some of his policies. But he flunked him for presidential character.

But, on balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions last month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office.

He also marked Trump down for failure to co-operate with allies. He noted:

The alternative to U.S. world leadership offered by China and Russia is autocratic, corrupt and brutal.

1980s Want Foreign Policy Back

Romney’s been consistent about Russia as our number one threat. And President Obama mocked him for it in their 2012 debate.

“And, the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

Trump responded that if Romney had stood up to Obama’s taunts he might be president today.
