Bush's endorsement on Twitter comes shortly after Romney criticized President Trump for reportedly describing African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week.

"The poverty of an aspiring immigrant's nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race. The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/ America's history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & 'charity for all,'" Romney tweeted on the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

Martinez is looking for his $200 million deal. Eric Hosmer seems to be still looking for a landing spot on a team not using the word “rebuilding” in its mission statement. Top starters Jake Arrieta and Yu Darvish are still trying to figure out where they’ll pitch next year, and next-tier starters Alex Cobb and Lance Lynn are waiting for contenders to decide it’s worth paying for a quality No. 3 guy.

Romney, a former GOP presidential nominee, has vocally criticized Trump on numerous occasions.

Other Republicans have also voiced their support of Romney, hoping he will take over the Senate seat when Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) retires at the end of his current term.

Trump had reportedly urged Hatch to seek another term in 2018 as a way to block Romney from running.

Some Senate Republicans are eager for Romney to run because they believe he would serve as an independent voice who is not afraid to stand up against his own party's president.

Trump faced immense backlash for alleged shithole comments, with some lawmakers accusing him of racism.

Trump has repeatedly denied making the comments, tweeting on Friday that he "never said anything derogatory about Haitians."

On Sunday, he doubled down and blamed Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) the Democrat present in the meeting, for misrepresenting his remarks.

"Senator Dicky Durbin totally misrepresented what was said at the DACA meeting," he tweeted.

Trump on Sunday also pushed back on claims he is a racist.

"No. I'm not a racist. I'm the least racist person you will ever interview," Trump told reporters while entering Trump International Golf Course.
