Mitt Romney told The Wall Street Journal that his grandkids provided the motivation for speaking out against Donald Trump.

"I wanted my grandkids to see that I simply couldn't ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world," Romney said in an interview with the WSJ.

Romney did so at his own peril and despite the advice of his friends and former aides to "stay out of the fray," Romney told the WSJ.

And the blowback, which was to be expected, has been "constant and brutal," Romney told the newspaper. In addition to Trump's expected verbal lashings, former Speaker Newt Gingrich told the WSJ that Romney going "berserk in public makes you wonder what his problems are."

"I know that some people are offended that someone who lost and is the former nominee continues to speak, but that's how I can sleep at night," Romney told the WSJ.

Though Romney won't endorse Trump, he won't vote for Hillary Clinton either.

"Hopefully, I will find a name I can support," Romney told the WSJ. "If not, I will write in a name."
