Before Ronna Romney McDaniel took over as Republican National Committee chairwoman, President Donald Trump asked if she'd be willing to stop using her middle name publicly, The Washington Post reported.

According to the Post, which cited two unnamed sources, Trump followed up by saying McDaniel – niece of former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and granddaughter of former Gov. George Romney – could do what she wanted.

But she later dropped "Romney" from most official party communications and has rarely used it since, the Post reported.

The outlet said the incident highlights the sometimes tense relationship between Trump and the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, who's been a critic of the president — and who reportedly is considering a Senate campaign in Utah.

On Monday, Trump, during a visit there, appeared to encourage Hatch to hang in for an eighth term, saying, "We hope you will continue to serve your state and your country in the Senate for a very long time to come."
