Mitt Romney And Donald Trump To Discuss Secretary Of State Position | Closing Bell | CNBC

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is scheduled to meet with President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of becoming secretary of state. The meeting is significant, as Romney was a vocal critic of Trump during the presidential campaign, calling him a “phony” and a “fraud.” However, Trump has recently praised Romney, saying he has “gained enormous respect” for him. The secretary of state position is considered one of the most important posts in the Trump administration, as the individual will be responsible for overseeing U.S. foreign policy.
