WASHINGTON (AP) — Mitt Romney says he worries that Donald Trump is promoting “trickle-down racism” and appealing to the racist tendencies of some Americans.

Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, says he will consider voting for the Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson. Romney made the remarks in a CNN interview while hosting his annual politics and business summit at a ski resort near Park City, Utah.

Romney has been one of the most outspoken Republican Trump critics and continued hammering the presumptive nominee on CNN.

Of the billionaire businessman’s taxes, which Trump has refused to release, Romney says, “there’s something in those taxes that’s even worse than shooting someone on Fifth Avenue.”

A spokesman for Trump says on CNN that Romney’s comments amount to “sour grapes.”
