President Trump released a statement on Mitt Romney just days after Romney was booed on stage.
Trump was thrilled that RINO Romney was booed while on stage and was quoted saying “So nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at the Utah Republican State Convention,”.
He continued and called Romney a “stone-cold loser”.
Romney has had a big target on his back ever since he decided to vote to impeach Trump earlier this year.
Take a look at Trump’s full statement here:
Here’s the video Trump was referring to:

The Hill covered the story, see what they had to share:
President Trump celebrated Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) being booed by a crowd by fellow Republicans at an event last week, calling the senator “a stone cold loser.”
“So nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at the Utah Republican State Convention,” Trump said in a Monday statement, using the acronym for the dig “Republican in name only.”
“They are among the earliest to have figured this guy out, a stone cold loser!” Trump continued.
Romney was booed on Saturday at the beginning of his speech at the Utah Republican Party’s organizing convention.
Video from the speech showed attendees cheering and booing after Romney asked how people felt about President Biden’s first 100 days in office.

Fox 13 News got the scoop too:
President Donald Trump mocked Utah Senator Mitt Romney being booed by state Republican Party delegates over the weekend.
The former president, who has been banned from social media sites, issued an old-fashioned statement Monday with his assessment of the weekend’s events: “So nice to see RINO Mitt Romney booed off the stage at the Utah Republican State Convention. They are among the earliest to have figured this guy out, a stone cold loser!”
“RINO” is an acronym for “Republican In Name Only.” The former president’s statement wasn’t entirely accurate; Sen. Romney was not booed off the stage.
Romney’s fifteen minutes of fame that the Democrats gave him for voting to impeach Trump are coming to an end and reality is starting to kick in.
