George Conway used election statistics to challenge Donald Trump after the president mocked Utah Sen.-elect Mitt Romney for losing to Barack Obama in the 2012 election.
In response to Romney’s scathing commentary about him in the Washington Post, Trump posted a tweet Wednesday discussing how he “won a big win” in the 2016 election.
Mitt Romney is here, but so soon! The question will be, is he Flake? I hope not. I prefer Mitt to focus on border security and many other things he can help with. I had a big win and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. be a team player and win

Romney did lose to Obama in the 2012 election. Trump failed to notice, however, that he received a smaller 46.1 percent of the national vote in 2016, compared with 47.2 percent for Romney four years earlier.
Conway, a strong critic of Trump, and his wife, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, prefers to stress it.
