Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) has never been afraid to call out Donald Trump, the twice-impeached ex-president who lost the popular vote twice. In fact, Romney voted twice to impeach Trump. While he’s never taken any strong stance against his own, Trump-enthralled party, he has at least spoken up about some of the corruption of the administration.

As often as Romney says on camera that Trump has been terrible for our country, it appears that Romney holds to that message in private donor meetings. At a recent event honoring Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), Romney told donors that democracy is in peril, and that keeping it would present a challenge.

According to CBS News:

‘According to five attendees, Romney told the crowd that he has a chart in his Senate office tracing the history of civilizations over the past 4,000 years. He said it is a reminder of how they can rise and collapse, and of how unusual American democracy is in global history…we are really the only significant experiment in democracy, and preserving liberal democracy is an extraordinary challenge.’

The comments can be directly attributed as pointed at Trump, who is currently under investigation in more than one arena for trying to overthrow a democratic election, which led to an attack on the Capitol Building. He’s under investigation in Georgia, as well, for trying to bully Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger to overturn the election of President Joe Biden in that state.

Twitter had a lot to say about the latest comments from Sen. Romney. Read some of their thoughts below:
