Romney has been quick to condemn Trump and his baseless allegations of widespread election fraud. He was the only GOP senator who voted to convict Trump during his first impeachment trial last year.

His tweet Saturday came in response to messages posted by Greene in which she said she had a “GREAT” phone call with Trump while pushing back on criticism from fellow members of Congress.

Greene tweeted after the call with Trump that she is “so grateful for his support.”

Members of both parties have condemned Greene for peddling conspiracy theories and supporting posts on Facebook before entering office that had called for violence against Democrats.

Democrats have begun pushing for hearings in order to remove Greene from the House.
