Trump supporters confront Mitt Romney at the airport & on plane
On the flight, Trump supporters chanted “Traitor!”
“Why aren’t you supporting President Trump?” asked one woman, who approached Romney while he sat in the airport waiting area using his iPad, noting that she would agree to put on a mask because she wanted to have a “chat” with him.
“I do agree with many of the things he is for, and I support those things,” the Utah senator replied, in reference to the president.
She asked if he would support Trump and some Republican lawmakers’ efforts to overturn President-elect Biden’s win by blocking the Senate’s certification of the Electoral College votes.
“No,” he replied. “It’s a long story, but we have a Constitution; the Constitution process is clear. I will follow the Constitution, and I will explain all that when we meet in Congress this week.”
The woman continued to confront Romney for not voting to reelect the president, adding that he had been voted in “as a conservative to represent the conservative constituents. Period.”
The woman then presses Romney about his lack of support for Trump in the 2020 election and tells the Republican “you work for us.”
“I work for the people of Utah,” replies before gathering his belongings and attempting to walk away from the woman who, along with another supporter of Trump, continues to follow him.
A man, who was also recording Romney, berated him as he attempted to leave, telling him: “You’re a joke.”
