PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — He once called Donald Trump "a con man," but Mitt Romney is predicting that Trump will "easily" win his party's presidential nomination in 2020 and "solidly" win a second term.

Romney, the GOP's failed 2012 presidential nominee from Massachusetts, now a Republican Senate candidate in Utah, made the prediction as he welcomed dozens of high-profile business and political leaders to a mountainside retreat in Utah Thursday night.

The future, Romney predicted, will feature Trump as America's leader at least for another six years.

Romney once called Trump "a con man" and "a fake" in a scathing speech before the 2016 election. But now, in the midst of a Republican Senate primary campaign, Romney appears to be embracing Trump and his leadership role in the modern-day Republican Party.
