Former Gov. Mitt Romney, a strident critic of Donald Trump, met with the president-elect in New Jersey on Saturday, and on Sunday's Face the Nation, Vice President-elect Mike Pence said the two men had "not only a cordial meeting, but also it was a very substantive meeting." Pence said he could not say when Trump would make his selection, but "I can say that Gov. Romney is under active and serious consideration to serve as secretary of state of the United States." On Fox News, Pence said of Romney: "I know he is under active consideration to be secretary of state... along with some other distinguished Americans."
