Mitt Romney is now the only GOP voice willing to stand up for Trump

Sen. Mitt Romney participates in Floyd protest march
After a standard bearer and presidential candidate for the party, Romney found himself at a time when he was a man on an island, often the only GOP member who criticized President Donald Trump in public for his tone, tweet and his inability to unite the country. at the time of racial calculation.
But after George Floyd’s death and the rush of calls for equal police and justice reform, Romney appeared to be more incapacitated than following party lines or remaining silent. Over the weekend, Romney lined up with protesters in Washington, tweeting what he said was a clear and important phrase to repeat: “Black is important.” In recent days, the senator has refused to say whether he will support Trump for re-election in November.

Romney praised his father’s legacy as governor of Michigan in the late 1960s for some of his recent actions, but also said the events of the last few weeks made him think – like many Americans – that more needs to be changed.

“I state clearly, which is a problem of black souls,” Romney told reporters Monday night in a broad interview. “If there is injustice, we want to correct it. If there is prejudice, we want to change it. If there is bias, we hope to give people a different perspective.”

Romney said while he did not see the issue of equality through a political lens, it was undeniable that his party had “a small part of the embarrassing African American voice.”

In recent weeks, Romney’s small defiance of President’s words or tweets has been more than a reaction to Floyd’s death.

In May, Romney said during a hearing on coronavirus that he found a US record of testing – something Trump was repeatedly proud of – “nobody celebrates anything.”

After Trump repeatedly raised conspiracy theories about the death of an aide who had worked for former congressman now MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, Romney tweeted “enough” last month. And when Trump tweeted Tuesday about an unfounded report that a protester who had been torn down by police in Buffalo, New York, was a member of Antifa, Romney went to mics and told reporters on Capitol Hill that the tweet was “shocking” even because most of his colleagues from Republicans refused to stop or listen to tweets that were read to them.

“I saw the tweet. It is very surprising to say and I will not appreciate it with further comments,” Romney said.

MPs and close assistants with the senator argued that his recent remarks were not new or improved. They say junior senators from Utah always vow to speak out against the President’s actions when he disagrees. He, however, was one of Trump’s most persistent critics in 2016.

“Everyone must be allowed to speak in their minds,” Republican Senator Shelley Moore Capito from West Virginia told CNN about Romney. “I think Mitt has a lot of good friends at our conference. … Although it might be difficult for people to think that if he says things that you disagree with or he might say them the wrong way … we still appreciate the year the years of his devotion and vision. “

Romney’s face with Trump has appeared in many forms over the years, from blistering speeches to heated op-eds, including those he published in 2019 on The Washington Post where he argues that “president [had] do not climb into office coats. “Romney frustrated his GOP colleagues in February when he crossed the aisle and joined the Democrats in a vote to get Trump out of office in the middle of an impeachment trial. Republicans criticized Romney for stepping on the inevitable Trump’s release message. they are heads.
“I will give it this: a professional launch,” a GOP senator told CNN at the time. “Not too collegial, but very professional.”

In recent days, Romney said he had worked with his colleagues to help make laws to control police brutality. And while many Republicans do not want to comment on his criticism of Trump, they argue that Romney has emerged as a legislative partner.

“He is willing to be involved in important issues that affect the country,” said Senator Tim Scott, a Republican from South Carolina who led the effort to overhaul policing. “We must welcome every senator who wants to be part of the solution. That is good news. I think self-awareness is a good thing too, but he is trying to make a difference, and I think it should be admired.”

Portuguese missionary denounces 'daily persecution and massacre' in Congo

“There are persecutions and massacres every day” in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and the international community turns a blind eye to this, says Father Marcelo de Oliveira, a Portuguese missionary in the African country.

The chief administrator of Komboni Province Missionaries in the Democratic Republic of the Congo speaks in an interview Renaissancethat attacks are permanent in an area of ​​the country where “cobalt is a source of wealth.”

“There are persecutions and massacres every day, there are people who are tortured, people who are forced to leave their homes and forced to flee,” condemns a priest who has lived in the Democratic Republic of the Congo for 15 years.

The eastern provinces of the DRC, notably North Kivu and neighboring Ituri, have “lived for decades in a state of constant instability due to the presence of various armed groups.

Born in Mortagua, Viseu district, the missionary says that in the Congo “no one escapes persecution.” “Catholics, Protestants and sects are treated equally”, given that “the religious question does not affect the situation at all”.

The priest says that “the Church is being persecuted, but to be a Christian means to be persecuted.” “The Catholic Church, which has great weight in public life, which has a large number of Catholics, which, by vocation, denounces, tells the truth and strives to defend the rights of the people, of course, is not appreciated by the simple,” he emphasizes.

The world “crossed its arms” on the problems in Africa

The priest admits that the President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Felix Tshisekedi, is ready to fight corruption, but says that, on the one hand, the government is involved in the situation, and on the other hand, it is powerless to resolve it.

“The complicity is there to keep getting what they get from the stuff they sell and ship out of the country anyway,” he explains.

On the other hand, Marcelo’s father accuses the international community of doing nothing for the suffering people of the Congo and trying to “keep capitalizing on the wealth of the country” by sending “weapons to be able to keep up the unrest and thus keep on stealing easily” . .

“The Congo is a very rich country, and it is a bit strange that such a rich country is at the same time so poor. There is gold, diamonds, copper, cobalt, soil that could give twice a year, it’s hard to understand,” the missionary laments, and then accuses: “there are interests from outside (the international community) to be able to continue to benefit from everything rich, and so they keep sending weapons to keep the mess going and thus easily keep stealing.”

The missionary ensures that “when there is a problem in Africa, everyone folds their hands” and gives an example of the reluctance to find a cure for malaria, which “kills a huge number of people every day”, and now with Covid-19. 19 pandemic “the whole world plunged into disaster.”

The priest assures that “there are more people who die in Africa from malaria than those who die from Covid”, and rhetorically asks: “Who created a medicine to treat poor Africans? The problem of malaria after all this time?”

Marcelo’s father replies, “No one, it doesn’t matter, it doesn’t matter. Since we cannot profit from what we do, it is not important to make medicine, it is not important to help a country that will not repay us, ”he laments.

Pope ‘deeply wishes’ to visit Congo

In this interview with RenaissanceFather Marcelo Oliveira assures that “the population still expects that soon” the Pope will visit the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

He believes that “for people living in conditions of constant attacks, persecution, the visit of the Pope would be a moment of encouragement.”

First of all, because Francis planned a visit to the city of Goma in the eastern part of the country, “where he will be with some victims of violence, and, of course, these people may be a little disappointed.”

“However, the population continues to expect that he will be able to come to us soon,” he assures.

The priest confirms that the Pope “deeply desires to be and come” to the Congo to “know the reality” and acknowledges that “the celebration planned for this Sunday with the Congolese community at St. Parolina in Kinshasa “is a sign of such a will.”

“The Pope deeply desires to be and come, because I believe he has heard so much about the reality of the suffering of the Congolese people, and therefore he has a deep desire to be able to come,” he assures.

Francis’ trip to South Sudan and the Congo, scheduled for July 2-7, has been rescheduled for a new date to be fixed due to the Pope’s health.
