Trump will travel to Salt Lake City, Utah, Monday for official business, to meet with leaders of the Church of Latter Day Saints and give a speech at the state capitol, which Politico suggests is a political move to encourage Hatch to stay in the Senate.
The report stated in more recent times, Hatch also played a pivotal role in passing Trump's tax reform bill through the Senate. "He's not afraid to take on the big boss around here", Hatch said. And indeed, Hatch was reportedly telling friends he wouldn't.
Romney has been considering a Senate run for months, but he may only seek for the GOP nomination if Hatch declines to run for another term.
President Donald Trump is pushing Sen.
As the president visited Utah on Monday, he also was embarking on a behind-the-scenes campaign to convince Hatch not to retire, according to Politico.

According to Trump deputies, the president's relationship with Hatch began before Romney planned of being Utah's senator.
Trump called Hatch in October to and requested he run again, sources familiar with the call told Politico. Orrin Hatch to Utah on Monday to announce his decision to roll back the size of former President Barack Obama's last-minute designation of two national monuments in Utah. "Morally different universes", Romney tweeted, following up with a Facebook post urging Trump to "act now for the good of the country".
Although Trump aides attributed the president's efforts to his bond with Hatch, those close to Romney believe the president's primary motivation is to keep Romney, whom he publicly sparred with throughout the 2016 campaign, from entering the Senate, according to Politico.
Such concern apparently exists outside the White House as well.
"Whether Romney would maintain his critiques if he landed in Washington is a matter of some debate; sources close to him told the Atlantic that he would consider toning it down, "at least at first", and would focus instead on "[using] his status as an elder statesman in the G.O.P.to rally congressional Republicans around conservative legislative initiatives". Later, when Trump assumed office, he floated Romney as a potential candidate for Secretary of State, but snubbed him in favor of former Exxon C.E.O.
