President Donald Trump wants Republican Sen.

At another event, Trump mouthed "yes" when asked whether he wanted Hatch to run again in 2018 while pushing a shopping cart through The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' Welfare Square as he purported to look for tuna.

Utah polls show that big majorities of voters want Hatch to retire and that Romney would easily win the seat.

Since then Romney has only criticized Trump in public after the President's remarks creating a moral equivalence between neo-Nazis and their opponents after the racial violence in Charlottesville, Va., in August.

"I asked for the president's help in fixing this disaster", Hatch said.

Romney has been considering a Senate run for months, but he may only seek for the GOP nomination if Hatch declines to run for another term.

Hatch, the second senator to endorse Trump during the presidential campaign, has said he's running again but has not announced a final decision. Hatch is 83 years old, and according to someone familiar with his thinking, he would indeed like to retire. "Yet Hatch, the longest-serving Republican senator in history, is now refusing to rule out another campaign - a circumstance Romney's infuriated inner circle blames squarely on the president". Their suspicions are warranted: Trump has sounded off to friends about how he doesn't like the idea of a Senator Romney. Hatch has also stood by Trump through some of his most hard moments.

"If Steve had a choice between Orrin Hatch and Mitt Romney, he would pick Hatch 10 times out of 10", an unnamed source close to Bannon told the Examiner.

Trump has mostly tried to sway Hatch behind the scenes.

Hatch will accompany Trump on his trip to Salt Lake, to his meetings and the signing of an executive order that will reduce the size of the Bears Ears and Escalante national monuments. Trump previously said he is doing it for Hatch. But when the press followed up with a question about whether Trump's enthusiasm for Hatch was meant to deter Romney, he demurred, replying, "He's a good man. Mitt's a good man". At the time, Hatch told Trump that he hadn't yet made up his mind. The president last week also praised Hatch's efforts on passing the Republican tax bill. John McCain, R-Ariz., is gravely ill, Romney would also become the de facto head of the non-Trump republicans - although not necessarily the anti-Trump Republicans. Later, when Trump assumed office, he floated Romney as a potential candidate for Secretary of State, but snubbed him in favor of former Exxon C.E.O.
