On Saturday, President Donald Trump took the stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), which is hosted at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Fort Washington, Maryland. As reported by Breitbart, Trump used his speech to take aim at Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, who was disinvited from CPAC after he became the first senator in history to vote in favor of removing a president from his own party.
Trump reportedly called Romney a "lowlife" for his vote to remove him from office as the crowd booed at the senator's name. The billionaire said he was unaware of how "deep" the Washington swamp is before doubling down on his pledge to rid the White House of "dirty" deep state operatives.
After Romney's impeachment vote, Trump's allies wasted no time taking aim at the senator. Republican Rep. Lee Zeldin of New York called him a "sore loser," suggesting that Romney's decision stemmed from bitterness about his failed presidential bid against former President Barack Obama.
As reported by The Week, Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk's made a CPAC speech on Thursday during which he encouraged the audience to boo at the mention of Romney's name.
"Every time his name is mentioned, you should respond that way," he said.
Kirk accused Romney of lying to "every single person" in the CPAC audience and noted his vote for the "sham, unconstitutional impeachment."
