Mitt Romney support for confirmation vote 'not at all surprising': HuffPost Washington Bureau Chief Amanda Terkel

HuffPost Washington Bureau Chief Amanda Terkel discusses whether she is surprised that Mitt Romney is willing to support a confirmation of a new Supreme Court Justice after the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Video Transcript

AMANDA TERKEL: No, not at all. I mean, Mitt Romney, sometimes he-- you know, Mitt Romney is anti-Trump, and he doesn't like Donald Trump that much. And so sometimes he's sort of branded this resistance hero and Democrats like him until he becomes what he is again, a conservative Republican. You know, Republicans-- many Republicans like having Trump in office simply because he has done what is most important to them, which is push through conservative nominees. And so it is not at all surprising that Mitt Romney, a solid Republican, is excited that another conservative justice will be able to be on the Supreme Court.
