Brushing off criticism and Twitter attacks from President Donald Trump, Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters Thursday he does not follow the president on Twitter, The Hill reported.
"First of all, I don't follow the president on Twitter so I don't see all of his tweets," Romney said, per The Hill. "But secondly, you know in my business if you got concerned about criticism, you'd be in the wrong business. So, I just don't worry about those things."
The former presidential candidate called Trump's behavior on the phone call with Ukraine "deeply troubling" and calling for an investigation of Joe Biden "wrong and appalling."
"I think everyone understands that asking a foreign government to investigate one's political opponent is wrong," Romney said, per The Hill. "I don't think there's any exception to that. People might try to stay silent.
"But there's no question that on its face asking China to investigate Mr. Biden, asking Ukraine, is simply the wrong thing to do."
Trump had ripped Romney on Twitter as a "pompous a–" and a "fool who is playing right into the hands" of Democrats.
"Oh don't repeat them," Romney joked to a reporter who recited the president's Twitter barbs.
Despite the rejection of decorum, Romney was not ready to support the House impeachment inquiry or say where he might go in a Senate vote on impeachment and removal.
"That something which I would have to consider down the road," he said, per the report.
"I'll keep an open mind until and unless there is some kind of decision reached by the House. . . . It's a purposeful effort on my part to stay unbiased, and to see the evidence as it's brought forward."
