President Trump endorsed Mitt Romney in the Senate race to replace retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) on Monday night, despite reportedly urging Hatch to run for reelection to block Romney out.
“He will make a great Senator and worthy successor to @OrrinHatch, and has my full support and endorsement!” Trump tweeted. Trump and Romney have had a complicated relationship. The 2012 GOP presidential nominee was a frequent critic during Trump’s own presidential campaign.
In March of 2016, Romney said he would have refused Trump's endorsement four years earlier

FLASHBACK: Mitt Romney Records Anti-Trump Robocall For Marco Rubio, Says Trump would lose to Hillary Clinton
Continuing the non-stop attack on Donald Trump.
In his new role as Donald Trump’s chief adversary, former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has turned his alarm-fueled message into a robocall on behalf of struggling GOP contender Sen. Marco Rubio, NBC News has confirmed.
Romney’s warning is coming to a phone near you in four states voting Tuesday: Michigan, Idaho, Hawaii and Mississippi.
In the call, which was first reported by the New York Times, Romney notifies listeners that he is calling for Rubio and asks them to choose “a candidate who can defeat Hillary Clinton and who can make us proud.”
“If we Republicans were to choose Donald Trump as our nominee, I believe that the prospects for a safe and prosperous future would be greatly diminished — and I’m convinced Donald Trump would lose to Hillary Clinton,” Romney says.
A source close to Romney told NBC News Monday that the former Massachusetts governor “has offered and is glad to help Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz, and Governor John Kasich in any way he can.

Romney Hosts Group of #NeverTrumpers At Utah Retreat to discuss ways to take-down Trump
WND Reported 6/3/2016
Mitt Romney, the twice-failed Republican candidate for president, has kicked off a weekend convention of fellow-minded “NeverTrump-ers,” hosting a retreat at a secluded Utah spot so they can gather and talk without worry of media coverage and condemnation about how they should proceed politically, if the billionaire businessman wins the White House.
It’s called the “Experts and Enthusiasts Summit,” or “E2” summit, and it’s set at the Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley in Park City, the Washington Post reported.
Reportedly, those in attendance will talk about their plans to take down Trump with a third-party candidate. Such talk was going strong in recent weeks, fueled by Weekly Standard neoconservative editor Bill Kristol. But Kristol’s top pick, National Review writer David French, opted against a run, sending the “NeverTrump” crowd back to square one.
The retreat is seen as a hopeful new stand against Trump, with about 300 of the party’s establishment attending, Breitbart said.
