Donald Trump is responding to negative comments given by Mitt Romney during a speech in Utah Thursday.

He says that the former GOP presidential nominee begged for Trump’s endorsement during the 2012 race.

Trump was responding to Romney’s comments earlier, in which the former nominee and Massachusetts governor warned Republicans that Trump is a fake, a misogynist and a dangerous choice for his party’s Presidential nomination.

“But you say, ‘wait wait wait… Isn’t he a huge business success? Doesn’t he know what he’s talking about? No he isn’t, and no he doesn’t,” said Romney.

Trump said during a rally in Portland, Maine, that Romney proved he’s a “choke artist” when he lost the 2012 presidential race to Barack Obama.

He adds that Romney declined to run a third time this year because he was afraid of Trump.
