Mitt Romney Perfectly Predicted Donald Trump's Response to His Speech

In a speech at the University of Utah on Thursday, former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney spoke out against GOP front-runner Donald Trump and perfectly predicted how he would respond to the criticism. Rather than defend his policy proposals, Trump went after Romney and mocked his failed presidential bid.

"Mitt is a failed candidate," Trump said at a campaign event in Portland, Maine hours after Romney's speech. "He failed. He failed horribly."

He added that Romney should have easily won the 2012 election and claimed that the candidate repeatedly sought his endorsement at the time.

"He was begging for my endorsement," Trump said. "I could’ve said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would’ve dropped to his knees. He was begging me."

That's pretty much what Romney expected Trump to say.

"Watch how he responds to my speech today," Romney said. "Will he talk about our policy differences or will he attack me with every imaginable low road insult? This may tell you what you need to know about his temperament, his stability, and his suitability to be president."

The feud between Romney and Trump comes days after the presidential hopeful secured victories in seven primary states on Super Tuesday. You can watch his response to Romney here:
