"Tremendous sincerity, what a guy", Trump tweeted.

Romney took to Twitter to post two pictures, one a selfie showing him in the foreground and protesters behind him, and another taken by someone else showing the senator, wearing a mask and checkered, light-colored dress shirt, walking amidst the protesters.

Sen Mitt Romney tweeted a selfie of himself marching with protesters in Washington D.C.

Romney, who marched with a large group of evangelical Christians along Pennsylvania Avenue, also told the Post he was participating in the demonstration to bring awareness to the need to "end violence and brutality".


President Donald Trump on Monday mocked Sen.

Romney's approval is underwater with Republicans, as only 46 percent signaled support for the Utah Senator in a Deseret News/Hinckley Institute of Politics poll conducted in May.

Viral video of Floyd pinned to the ground and exclaiming that he was unable to breathe until he lost consciousness sparked worldwide protests centered around the Black Lives Matter movement. "We must eliminate the problems from which they stem".

Romney became the first Republican senator to join the protests that have sprung up around the country in the wake of George Floyd's death when he marched with demonstrators down Pennsylvania Avenue toward the White House.


Joining the evangelical group was "spontaneous", the aide said, adding that Romney was in DC and meant to march Sunday.

Protests and riots erupted across the nation following the death of George Floyd, a black man, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, late last month.

"No Americans should fear enmity and harm from those sworn to protect us", Romney tweeted last week.
