Roney rebukes Trump

Mitt Romney on Monday took Donald Trump to task for the president’s “shithole” comment, writing on Twitter on Martin Luther King Jr. Day that an immigrant’s “nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race.”

“The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America’s history and antithetical to American values,” wrote the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, who is reported to be weighing a run for Utah's Senate seat. “May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Trump has come under fire for reportedly questioning why the United States allows people from “shithole” countries to enter — a comment widely construed as having racist overtones. The president denied making the remark and on Sunday night told reporters that he is “not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed.”
