MSNBC host Joe Scarborough on Tuesday complimented the White House for the "smart move" of endorsing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's campaign for Senate in Utah.

"If you can call the President of the United States a phony, and you can call him a fraud, and you can bring up the lawsuit that bothers him more than any other lawsuit in the world and he still endorses you?" Scarborough asked on "Morning Joe," referencing the many criticisms Romney has made of President Donald Trump.

"Mitt Romney wins," he added.

"It was a smart move from a White House that's not always smart. They didn't drive the plane into the ground this time. They said, 'OK, we don't want him there, we can't get [incumbent Utah Republican Sen. Orrin] Hatch to stay, he's not going to do it, let's make peace.' That's actually what you do in politics."

Scarborough later noted that Utah is not only one of the "most conservative states," it's also one of the most "skeptical states regarding Donald Trump," and that Mitt Romney advocated for background checks for firearm purchases days after announcing his campaign.

"I think this might be a very interesting relationship, and Donald Trump does know as he goes into November [that] he's got to get out of this box. He's got to follow up on what now appears to be the successes of the tax cuts, which now more Americans like than do not like, and again, try to save some of these Republican seats."
