PARK CITY, Utah (AP) — Mitt Romney says he's not sure if he will endorse President Donald Trump for a second term and that he may not support anyone during the 2020 campaign.

The Republican Utah senator and former presidential contender spoke to reporters Friday during an annual gathering of political leaders, wealthy donors and powerful businesspeople in the Utah ski-resort town of Park City.

Romney says he doesn't think endorsements are "worth a thimble of spit" and wouldn't be surprised if he skips them altogether.

Romney also says he's against Trump's proposal to impose tariffs on Mexico to force the country to stem the flow of migrants into the U.S.

He does support tariffs on China, which he contends has been "abusing the global rules of fair and free trade."
