Sen. Romney: 'Moronic' for Dems to Legislate for Trump Taxes

Democrats are fighting losing battles on illegal immigration, Medicare for all, and seeking to obtain the U.S. president's tax returns through legislative action, according to Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, who slammed the latter attempt as "moronic."

"[Trump] said he would be happy to release his returns – so I wish he'd do that – but I have to also tell you: I think the Democrats are just playing along his handbook, which is, going after his tax returns through legislative action is moronic," Sen. Romney told NBC's "Meet the Press." "That's not going to happen.

"The courts are not going to say that you can compel a person running for office to release their tax returns."

Radical proposals of congressional overreach are "nonstarters" and losing platforms for the Democratic Party, according to Romney.

"So, he's going to win this victory – he wins them time after time," Romney told NBC's Chuck Todd. "The Green New Deal, all these candidates out there talking about getting rid of Obamacare and traditional healthcare and putting in place Medicare, these things are just nonstarters.

"And I think the Democratic Party are finding themselves in a real difficult positions with those positions."
