Trump Transition

Mitt Romney is reportedly being considered for Trump's Cabinet

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is meeting with Donald Trump this weekend to discuss "governing and [a] possible Cabinet post," CNN reports.

This would be a curious partnership, as Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, has been an outspoken critic of Trump's, calling him a "phony" and a "fraud" as well as publicly saying he would rather write in his wife than vote for Trump. Romney even delivered a full speech against Trump in March aimed at stopping Trump's then-snowballing momentum in the Republican primary.

Trump has arranged several meetings with potential Cabinet picks, including one with South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley on Thursday that comes amid rumors that she is being considered as a candidate for secretary of state. "My transition team, which is working long hours and doing a fantastic job, will see a great many candidates today," Trump tweeted early Thursday morning.
