DNC Turns Trump's Romney Endorsement Into a Curse

DNC pokes fun at Trump's Romney Endorsement

By + More

The Democratic National Committee wasted no time in turning Donald Trump's endorsement of Mitt Romney into a curse for the GOP frontrunner.

In a low-budget ad, the DNC shows many criticisms Trump made of Romney over the past year, including a comment Trump made to the Washington Post criticizing the former Massachusetts governor for having a history of "eliminating jobs rather than creating them," and another comment Trump made that Romney "doesn't have a chance at the nomination."

What do Romney and Trump have in common? "They both like firing people," the DNC says.

It's followed by various clips of Trump delivering his signature 'You're Fired' line on his television show "The Apprentice" and a comment Romney made while campaigning in New Hampshire regarding private insurance companies.

"I want individuals to have their own insurance," he said. "That means the insurance company will have an incentive to keep you healthy. It also means if you don't like what they do, you can fire them. I like being able to fire people who provide services to me."
