Mitt Romney said he would not recommend his grandchildren use President Donald Trump as a role model.
Romney, who is running for the Senate seat in Utah, made his comments in an interview with NBC News.
"I don't think that I would point to the president as a role model for my grandkids on the basis of his personal style," Romney said. "He has departed in some cases from the truth, and has attacked in a way that I think is not entirely appropriate.
"I think that his policies have been by and large a good deal better than I might have expected. But some of the things he has said are not ones that I would aspire for my grandkids to adopt."
Romney had criticized Trump during the presidential campaign in 2016.
He recently remarked: "But I'm an honest enough person that if he does something right — and by the way, he's done a number of things right — I'll be fully supportive of those things."
In his interview with NBC News, the former Republican presidential nominee also weighed in on U.S. negotiations with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un over a planned summit.
"I don't think we could possibly understand exactly what's going on in Kim Jong Un's mind, but the potential to reach our goal, which is denuclearization of North Korea on a permanent basis and a verifiable basis is something we all hope for and I'm encouraged that the president will speaking ultimately to Kim Jong Un, apparently," he said.
