Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump dismissed Mitt Romney’s criticism with an attack on Romney’s own success as the GOP’s presidential candidate.
Mitt Romney had his chance to beat a failed president but he choked like a dog. Now he calls me racist-but I am least racist person there is

Trump had some support this time from Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus, who responded to Romney’s latest comments that he would not vote for Trump.
Respect Mitt and differences but couldn’t disagree more. SCOTUS too important to lose for generations. Let’s stop this and unify.

Trump campaigned Friday in Virginina, and noted he might amend his trademark campaign slogan as a reminder to his critics that improving America helps all Americans.
“Make America Great Again,” Trump told the crowd in Richmond. “I’m adding ‘For Everyone’ — because it’s really going to be for everyone. It’s not going to be for a group of people, it’s going be for everyone.”
Also on Friday, Trump spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s annual “Road to the Majority”
“Hillary Clinton won’t even say ‘Radical Islam,’” Trump said. “She wants a 500-percent increase in refugees from Syria.”
By contrast, Trump said, America must “temporarily stop this whole thing that’s going on with refugees” fleeing Syria.
“We don’t know where they come from, but we have to take a rest,” Trump said. “We have to take a timeout. We have to use the money to take care of our poorest Americans and work with them, so they can come out of this horrible situation that they’re in.”
