Republican senator Romney calls out Trump and 'vile' United States politics

"I have stayed quiet with the approach of the election", he said, "But I'm troubled by our politics, as it has moved away from spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation - let alone the birthplace of modern democracy".

Romney, the only member of the Republican Senate majority to vote for Trump's impeachment conviction in February, homed in on the president's calling Democratic vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris a "monster" and the Democratic leader of the House Nancy Pelosi "crazy".

The campaign titled "Trump Hatao America Bachao" and "Biden Harris ko jitao, America ko aage badao", was launched in 14 Indian languages on Monday, said Biden supporters, Ajay and Vinita Bhutoria.

Trump jumped on the Gallup poll to bolster his campaign, writing on Twitter that "The Gallup Poll has just come out with the incredible finding that 56% of you say that you are better off today, during a pandemic, than you were four years ago (OBiden)". "Pelosi tears up the president's state of the union speech on national television".

Romney, the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, accused the media, "on the left and right", of amplifying "all of it".

The focus of the campaign on the battle ground States where every vote matters and Indian-Americans can play an important role in the election results, Bhutoria said in a statement.

It goes without saying that there is no equivalency, but Romney refused to take a firm stance condemning one of these things without condemning the other; he placed them side by side.

"The rabid attacks kindle the conspiracy mongers and the haters who take the small and predictable step from intemperate word to risky action", Romney said. "Many Americans are frightened for our country, so divided, so angry, so mean, so violent". "Leaders must tone it down". Parents, bosses, reporters, columnists, professors, union chiefs, everyone.

But the only other person name-checked in Romney's statement was Keith Olbermann, who was a top ratings draw for years - as host of the program Countdown with Keith Olbermann - while Todd was the network's political director.
