Trump Blasts Romney in Utah: 'Are You Sure He's a Mormon?"

Trump Blasts Romney in Utah: 'Are You Sure He's a Mormon?"

Donald Trump had a question about Mitt Romney for his Salt Lake City supporters Friday night: "Are you sure he's a Mormon?"

"Do I love the Mormons? OK, I love the Mormons," Trump told the rally, held in the Utah city where the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is headquartered, reports The Hill. "By the way, Mitt Romney is not one of them ... Are you sure he's a Mormon? Are we sure?"

The questions about Romney's faith, posed in a city that itself was founded by Mormon leader Brigham Young and his followers, is the latest in the heated battle between Trump and the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, who has sworn his opposition against the current party front-runner.

This is not the first time Trump has questioned his rivals' religious faith, including posing doubts about Ben Carson's religion, as a Seventh-Day Adventist.

However, Trump took offense when Pope Francis questioned his Christianity in February, saying that it was "disgraceful" for him to doubt another person's faith.

Romney has not officially supported any candidate, although he announced earlier on Friday that he will vote for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in Utah, where he owns a home, because he believes Cruz, not Ohio Gov. John Kasich, has the best chance of defeating Trump.
