Breaking: Trump to Meet with Mitt Romney About Secretary of State

During the Republican primary season Donald Trump and Mitt Romney went to war over his candidacy as Romney made it clear that Trump, in his opinion, was wholly unqualified for the White House.

But now reports indicated they could team up with Romney as the new Secretary of State.

Here’s more from CNN:

President-elect Donald Trump will meet this weekend with one of his fiercest critics: 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney, a discussion that could include the position of secretary of state.

The two men are set to discuss “governing moving forward” and potentially a role for Romney in Trump’s Cabinet, a senior Republican source told CNN on Thursday.
Romney has long told friends that he would like to serve in government again and the one job he is interested in is secretary of state, a senior Republican with knowledge of the transition tells CNN. The source says that Romney is meeting with Trump in part to discuss it.
The former Massachusetts governor is being presented as a choice that would show Trump is looking for “adults” because he would bring a team of professionals along with him, the source said, adding that the nomination is being seen as a “serious” possibility.
The meeting with Romney comes as concern about Rudy Giuliani’s chances of confirmation continue — a factor, the source said, that has been discussed with Trump. It’s also the latest in a series of Trump’s conversations and encounters with Republicans who did not support his candidacy in an effort to reunite the GOP following a divisive election that fractured the party establishment.
Trump is also maintaining a jam-packed schedule Thursday as the President-elect’s team looks to tamp down reports of disarray and infighting within the transition effort, which has been slow to ramp up following Trump’s shocking victory last week.
