CNN Contributor Kristol Posts Poll Pitting Trump VS Romney And Trump Is Crushing It

CNN contributor and one of the Republicans
who is against President Donald Trump thought he would do something to help Sen. Mitt Romney. He started a Twitter poll to see who was more
respected, President Trump or Sen. Romney, and it did not work the way he wanted. After more than 155,000 votes President Trump
is ;bahead of Sen. Romney by a margin of 65 percent to 35 percent. “Let’s see how much of a hellscape Twitter
is. Whom do you respect more?” he said, which shows he had an idea of how the poll
would work. The poll came on the same day that President
Trump fought back against the Utah senator and former Republican nominee for president. Trump Shreds Romney, Calls Him ‘Pompous
Ass’ Who Could Not Win. President Donald Trump shredded Utah Sen.
Mitt Romney after the senator attacked the president over his call on China to investigate
former Vice President Joe Biden. “When the only American citizen President
Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of
the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other
than politically motivated,” the senator said. “By all appearances, the president’s brazen
and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.” President Trump stayed quiet for a day after
Romney made his statement, but on Saturday he came fighting back at him. “Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and
tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate
one. “And my statement on China pertained to
corruption, not politics. If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won. Sadly, he
choked! “Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is
a pompous ‘ass’ who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged
me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him). “And when he begged me to be Secretary of
State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!” the president said. The tweets from President Trump also came
after Democrats in The House subpoenaed documents for their impeachment inquiry, Reuters reported. U.S. House Democrats on Friday subpoenaed
the White House for documents they want to see as part of their impeachment investigation
of President Donald Trump. The chairmen of three House of Representatives
committees said they want documents related to a July 25 phone call between Trump and
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy that is at the heart of their inquiry. The three said they were forced to issue the
subpoena after the White House failed to produce documents they requested in a Sept. 9 letter. “We deeply regret that President Trump has
put us – and the nation – in this position, but his actions have left us with no choice
but to issue this subpoena,” said Representatives Elijah Cummings of the Oversight Committee,
Adam Schiff of the Intelligence Committee and Eliot Engel of the Foreign Affairs Committee. They gave the White House until Oct. 18 to
produce the information, including who else besides Trump was on the phone call with Zelenskiy. “This subpoena changes nothing – just
more document requests, wasted time, and taxpayer dollars that will ultimately show the President
did nothing wrong,” White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said in a statement. White House lawyers believe Trump, a Republican,
can ignore lawmakers’ demands until the Democratic-controlled House holds a full vote
of the chamber to formally approve of the impeachment inquiry, according to a person
familiar with the matter. Earlier, the committees asked Vice President
Mike Pence to hand over documents relating to a meeting he held with Zelenskiy and the
call between Zelenskiy and Trump. They gave Pence until Oct. 15 to produce any
records relating to the July call and a meeting he held with Zelenskiy on Sept. 1. According to a partial transcript of the call,
Trump asked Zelenskiy the “favor” of investigating former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, a leading
contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, and his son, Hunter Biden,
who had served on the board of Ukrainian gas company Burisma. At the time, the Trump administration was
withholding hundreds of millions in aid for Ukraine and Democrats said they suspect Trump
was using U.S. foreign policy and taxpayer money for his personal political gain. Trump
is running for re-election. “Recently, public reports have raised questions
about any role you may have played in conveying or reinforcing the president’s stark message
to the Ukrainian president,” Cummings, Schiff and Engel wrote in a letter to Pence. A spokeswoman for Pence said the broad nature
of the request showed that it was not “serious.”
