Romney, who lost two elections as the GOP candidate, delivered a harsh condemnation of Trump at the University of Utah on Thursday morning.

Trump's family, his employees and his political backers issued a series of tweets and Facebook posts Thursday afternoon, following Romney's accusations that Trump is a "phoney" and a "fraud."

Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., was among the first to take aim at Romney.

Ironic @MittRomney admitting that he's not the businessman @realDonaldTrump is https://t.co/J54xeyiZ4z#MakeAmericaGreatAgain#Establishment

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tweeted her support for Trump too, calling Romney's speech a "nonsensical attack" from the "machine" of the "Permanent Political Class."

Donald Trump, Don't Take the BaitThe "machine's" deception and nonsensical attack on Trump isn't really an attack on...

However, many of Trump's opponents were quick to voice their agreement with Romney's speech. GOP candidate John Kasich, for instance, suggested the Republican party would be ashamed to see Trump running the White House.

Well said, @MittRomney. -John pic.twitter.com/pTwmBTaeAo
