Billionaire businessman and presidential candidate Donald Trump has faced staunch opposition in his campaign from not only the race-baiting left, but also the establishment figures of his own Republican party.
Chief among those critics on his own side is former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who failed in his bid to unseat President Barack Obama in 2012, yet apparently seems to feel he still waves the banner for the entire party.
But the waning influence of Romney, as well as that of failed 2008 candidate and Arizona Sen. John McCain, has been unable to sway the base of the party or change the minds of Trump’s supporters, including NFL legend and Hall-of-Famer Herschel Walker.
Walker, who was a contestant on Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” and has been a friend of the real estate mogul for decades, recently took to Twitter to dispel the notion that Trump is a racist that has been repeatedly put forward by the liberal left.
I have personally known @realDonaldTrump for over 30 years and can confirm he is not a racist!!

Walker also took a heavy shot at Romney and McCain, using a football analogy to point out that those two men have little room to talk about Trump, having lost miserably when they had their shot at the proverbial title.
McCain and Romney lost the playoffs years ago yet they want to talk about someone getting ready for the Super Bowl🤔…Think about that.

This is great, and simply adds to the chorus of voices expressing their support for Trump, regardless of what the party powers that be and elite has-beens may think about it.
Both Mitt Romney and John McCain had their chances to win the White House and failed in their efforts, greatly disappointing a GOP base that never really wanted either as the nominee in the first place. The best thing for them to do now is to step aside and let the voters decide whom they want as their nominee this time around.
