Trump posted a series of tweets Thursday morning calling Romney a "failed candidate" who "doesn't know how to win" and claiming Romney begged for his endorsement four years ago.

Trump paired his criticism of Romney with a claim that he is the only candidate capable of defeating Democratic front-runner Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonGrassley blasts Democrats over unwillingness to probe Clinton GOP lawmakers cite new allegations of political bias in FBI Top intel Dem: Trump Jr. refused to answer questions about Trump Tower discussions with father MORE and ripped GOP establishment favorite Marco RubioMarco Antonio RubioRyan pledges 'entitlement reform' in 2018 Richard Gere welcomes lawmakers' words of support for Tibet Dem lawmaker gives McConnell's tax reform op-ed a failing grade MORE.

The criticism is an attempt to undermine Romney's speech later Thursday at the University of Utah where Romney plans to characterize the 2016 GOP front-runner as "a phony, a fraud."

According to his prepared remarks, Romney will say that America faces "another time for choosing," invoking 1964 address by Ronald Reagan, before arguing the election could have "profound consequences" for Republicans and the country.
