For the most part, 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney has remained quiet during the frenzy of opinion during the 2016 presidential race. This past week, however, Romney opened up and found himself in a tweet war with business mogul and presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

In an appearance at Babson College in Massachusetts, Romney made his most extensive comments to date, discussing his frustration with the national electorate and who he plans to support.

“Think for a moment about the major challenges you believe this country faces and tick them off in your mind and ask, ‘Are we making any real progress on any of them?’” Romney told the crowd, before urging both parties to work together to finally try and fix education, generational poverty, and the income gap.

“We’re just mad as hell and won’t take it anymore.”

In terms of who he would support, Romney said he is actively working behind the scenes, but has not decided who he will officially endorse.

Romney also told Fox News he believes there would be a “bombshell” in Donald Trump’s tax returns, even though he admits he doesn’t have evidence to support the claim. His questioning sparked a firestorm of angry tweets from Trump.


Romney responded with the following tweets:

Trump has insisted he will eventually release his tax returns, but they “are extremely complex.”
