In response to a video released by Mitt Romney on Wednesday, Former President Donald J. Trump offered his thoughts. Contrary to speculations suggesting that the Utah Senator might defect to Afghanistan to join the Taliban, Romney made it known that he intends to step away from politics as he enters the later years of his life.
“In another term, I would be well into my mid-80s. To be honest, it’s time for a new generation of leaders,” Romney stated in his announcement. “They are the ones who should be making decisions that will shape the world they’ll inhabit. Right now, we’re confronting pressing challenges, such as the growing national debt, climate change, and the assertive authoritarians in Russia and China.”
