Trump shot back at Romney during a rally Thursday, calling Romney a failed candidate saying he lost an election he should have won. Trump, who endorsed Romney in 2012, also said Romney had begged him for the endorsement.
"He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would've dropped to his knees."
I was with Mitt every time he saw @realDonaldTrump and guarantee Mitt never begged Trump. Wish I would've recorded Trump kissing Mitt's ass— Garrett Jackson (@dgjackson) March 4, 2016
