A little after 8 a.m. ET on Wednesday morning, 2012 presidential candidate and never Trumper Mitt Romney tweeted his “best wishes” for Trump, without congratulating him by name.
Particularly of note: Romney’s wording that he hopes that “preserving the Republic” is Trump’s aim.
Best wishes for our duly elected president: May his victory speech be his guide and preserving the Republic his aim.
