Donald Trump has an inkling Mitt Romney will endorse his competitor Marco Rubio for the Republican nomination, but Trump says he does not want Romney’s endorsement anyway.

“Romney turned out to be a disaster. I know he’ll support Rubio. He probably has no choice. Honestly, if he wanted to support me, I wouldn’t accept his support. We have to be honest, right,” Trump said during a speech in Fort Worth, Texas.

Trump had plenty more zingers for the Republican Party’s 2012 presidential nominee who has recently attacked Trump for not releasing his tax returns.

“Romney, how about this beauty. Runs one of the worst campaigns in the history of politics. He should have beaten Obama,” Trump said before criticizing the way Romney walked.

“Number one, when you walk into a state you cannot walk like a penguin. He walked like a penguin. I said this is a problem,” Trump said. “Somebody tell him take some steps. Romney turned out to be a disaster.”
