Following his dinner Tuesday night with Donald Trump, Mitt Romney had nothing but praise for the man he just months ago called a "phony" and a "fraud" whose promises "are as worthless as a degree from Trump University."

Romney, a contender for secretary of state and the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, told reporters outside Trump Tower that his evening with Trump was "wonderful," and said the pair, along with incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, discussed world affairs. The conversation was "enlightening and interesting and engaging," Romney continued, and he believes "America's best days are ahead of us." He even went so far as to say that Trump has a "message of inclusion and bringing people together."
