Romney and Trump spoke following trip to Utah, Conway says

Steve Bannon is going after Mitt Romney for his disavowal of Roy Moore - and he may be gearing up another battle against former GOP presidential candidate, this one over Utah's Senate seat. "I've got a copy of the Book of Mormon with his name on it", Hatch, a Mormon, said in a statement.

The View co-host Meghan McCain has been calling it like she sees it all week, first taking her co-hosts to task on Monday for their cheers regarding Michael Flynn cooperating with the investigation into the current administration, and today taking aim at former Senior Counselor to the President Steve Bannon.

Earlier this week, Romney tweeted against Moore and in support of women like Leigh Corfman. And, after the RNC recently chose to provide support for Moore's race, Romney tweeted out that the candidate would be a "stain" on the GOP: "No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity".

Over the weekend, Romney called Moore a "stain on the GOP and the nation", adding, "No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity".

Bannon has jumped into the Alabama race in the final week before the December 12 voting.

Former GOP nominee Mitt Romney (left) is mulling a Senate run if Sen.

Speaking on the subject of Moore's service in Vietnam as well as his "honor and integrity" Bannon accused Romney of hiding "behind" his religion, when the 19-year-old Romney deferred Vietnam service to answer a mission call for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: "You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam". "Those people in the audience, they think that they're stupid".

Since then, Romney has contemplated ways to get back in the political game, including testing the waters for this Senate seat.

Korea Issues More Threats as Drills Continue on Korean Peninsula
Heritage Foundation defense specialist Thomas Spoehr told Stars and Stripes North Korea would see such a move as a provocation. North Korea dubbed the joint aerial drill the largest ever, according to the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Romney, who was highly critical of Trump during the campaign, but has since warmed considerably, is reportedly eyeing the Senate seat now held by 83-year-old Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).

Three Utah Republican lawmakers jumped to Mitt Romney's defense on Wednesday after Steve Bannon accused Romney of hiding behind his religion to avoid in the Vietnam War.

He added that Mr. Romney's five sons also avoided service - though, unlike their father, they did not come of age when the US had a military draft. "You hid behind your religion", Bannon said. "Do not talk about honor and integrity".

The blowback to Bannon's Romney comments was swift.

"You ran for commander in chief and had five sons - not one day of service in Afghanistan or Iraq".

"Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinky finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA".

"We hope you will continue to serve your state and your country in the Senate for a very long time to come", he told Hatch, as the senator stood beside him during a ceremony announcing that Trump would slash 2 million acres from two Utah national monuments. "Hatch may run for re-election", Conway said, later adding, "Gov. Romney would want to be in public service in many different roles".
