Could Mitt Romney Be Donald Trump’s Secretary of State?

Donald Trump will meet with Mitt Romney, one of his most prominent Republican critics, in New York City this weekend.

CNN reported on Thursday that Romney and Trump are to meet on Saturday to discuss “governing moving forward,” and a source told CNN that there is a possibility that there will be discussion of a cabinet position for Romney.

Now it’s believed that Romney might be offered the job of secretary of state. NBC News is reporting that a source close to the situation confirms the meeting is to discuss the of secretary of state position.

This is a shocking development considering how vocal Mitt Romney was about his dislike of Trump throughout the Republican presidential primaries. In fact, Romney gave an entire speech back in March with the sole purpose of trying to stop Trump, calling the New York businessman a “phony” and a “fraud.” Romney even specifically called Donald Trump’s views on foreign policy “reckless.”

Romney said “And then what he said about on 60 Minutes. Did you hear this? It was about Syria and ISIS, and it has to go down as the most ridiculous and dangerous idea of the entire campaign season. Let ISIS take out Assad, he said, and then we can pick up the remnants. Now, think about that. Let the most dangerous terror organization the world has ever known take over an entire country? This recklessness is recklessness in the extreme. Now, Donald Trump tells us that he is very, very smart. I’m afraid that when it comes to foreign policy he is very, very not smart.”

Romney and Trump are also diametrically opposed when it comes to the United States’ relationship with Russia. Trump has repeatedly said that he wants to work with Russia and has praised its leader, Vladimir Putin. On the other hand, when Romney ran for president four years ago, he pointed to Russia as the single biggest threat to the United States.

“This is without question our No. 1 geopolitical foe,” Romney said of Russia. “They fight for every cause for the world’s worst actors. The idea that [President Obama] has more flexibility in mind for Russia is very, very troubling indeed.”

  1. It seems like the Republican party is trying to force Donald Trump into selecting Mitt Romney
    for Secretary of State. Don’t listen to Paul Ryan and other Republicans that were against you
    all this time. They are not true friends, they are only nice to you now because you got elected
    President. They are ready to stab you in the back if they can. Only you, Donald Trump must
    make the right decision and I hope it won’t be Mitt Romney. Pick one of the other people that
    were true to you and supported you during your campaign, not the traitors like Mitt Romney, Paul
    Ryan, Jeb Bush and all the other Republicans that were stabbing you in the back. Now the
    sleazy phonies are trying to get a job in your cabinet.
