Trump tapes Michigan robocall for Romney bashing Santorum

Trump goes on to hit Santorum for his loss in his race to defend his U.S. Senate seat, and for working as a lobbyist before and after his time in Congress.

"Needless to say, Rick Santorum is deeply entrenched in the Washington culture and has been for decades," Trump says.

Trump then praises Mitt Romney — whom he endorsed, after much speculation, earlier this month at an event in Las Vegas — as a "good man who works hard" and is able to stand up to the Chinese and OPEC.

"We gotta get him elected because he's the one person who can beat President Obama," Trump says.

It's Trump's second effort on the phones for Romney since announcing his endorsement — last week, the real estate mogul tweeted about personally phoning donors to fundraise money for Romney.

Trump's media liaison, Michael Cohen, later confirmed to CNN that Trump had raised "a substantial amount of money for the governor" over an hour of fundraising calls.

"Donald Trump doesn't only come with his larger-than-life persona, he comes [with] his personal relationships, which are substantial and far-reaching," Cohen added.
