Will Mitt Romney Become a 2020 Primary Challenger to Trump?

Political pundits are trying to divine the true meaning behind the recent social media clashes between President Donald Trump and Utah Senator Mitt Romney.
A few days ago, Romney accused Trump of “appalling” behavior in his call for China and Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Trump robustly responded in a series of Tweets that described Romney as a “pompous ass.” He also suggested that the people of Utah impeach their recently elected representative.
In the wake of Trump’s announcement of the withdrawal of troops from Syria, Romney tweeted that the move means the president handed a victory to Assad, Russia, Iran, and ISIS and he abandoned the Kurds. Meanwhile, Trump reminded everyone that he will wage an economic war against Turkey if they do something “off limits.”
These exchanges have led some analysts to speculate that Romney may be testing the waters to challenge Trump during the 2020 primary season.
For example, pollsters are pressing the news that Romney wins a “hypothetical” primary challenge against Trump…as long as said voters were strictly Utah Republican.
However, according to one of those infamous “unnamed sources,” what Romney really wants to do is to lead the Senate into removing Trump after the House impeaches him.
