New York Republicans have largely lined up behind Donald Trump as the party’s presidential nominee, but Dan Senor, a onetime foreign policy adviser to 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney, stands out as a vivid exception.
Senor, who once flirted with a challenge to Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand, D-N.Y., took to Twitter this weekend to say that even Trump’s choice for vice president – Indiana Gov. Mike Pence – once stood among Trump’s critics.
“It’s disorienting to have had commiserated w/someone re: Trump – about how he was unacceptable, & then to see that someone become Trump’s VP,” Senor tweeted.
Senor also criticized Pence for immediately signing on to Trump’s proposal for a wall at the Mexican border and saying Mexico “absolutely” would pay for it.
“Mexico would ‘absolutely’ pay? Pence actually understands US alliances. That he now must say such things is pathetic,” Senor tweeted.
