Mitt Romney has come out swinging against President Barack Obama in his first post-election interview, accusing the president of poisoning the negotiations over automatic spending cuts by "berating" Republicans.

Romney - last year's Republican presidential nominee - said in the interview with 'Fox News Sunday', that no one can think that the fight over the sequester has been a success for the president, reports CBS News.

The former Massachusetts governor also criticized the recent release of several hundred illegal immigrants detained by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. The agency justified the release as a cost-saving measure forced on them by the across-the-board budget cuts, but Romney argued that the president should have prevented it. (ANI)
