Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will meet with Donald Trump this weekend to discuss the secretary of state position, a source close to the president-elect with direct knowledge of his thinking told NBC News.
Mitt Romney and Trump have been in a wildly public back and forth in which both men have talked about the lack of faith that they have in each other. In March, Romney called Trump “a phony” and “a fraud” when discussing the then-candidate. Trump, who endorsed Romney in 2012, has called him a loser, adding that Romney begged for his endorsement and “would’ve dropped to his knees” for it. He has also said that he “choked like a dog” during his 2012 presidential campaign against President Barack Obama.
That being said, last week after the election, Romney called Trump to congratulate him on his surprise win which Trump tweeted “was very nice”.
