Romney Commends Trump's Cabinet Picks, 'Engaging Discussion', After NY Dinner
After having dinner with President-elect Donald Trump at a steakhouse in New York, former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) spoke to the press to reflect on the evening.
He said Trump's discussions with him have been "enlightening, interesting and engaging."
The 2012 Republican nominee said that he was impressed by Trump's victory speech on Election night, and noted that it was "not easy" to win a general election.
"His vision connected with the American people," Romney said, calling Trump a "man who can lead us to a better future."
The comments were in stark contrast to particularly critical remarks Romney has made throughout Trump's candidacy, especially prior to a Fox News debate in Detroit, as Megyn Kelly noted.
Romney, who is being considered for the nomination to the secretary of state post, said Trump's cabinet choices were impressive thus far, mentioning Rep. Dr. Thomas Price (R-Ga.), Gov. Nikki Haley (R-S.C.), Betsy DeVos and Sen. Jefferson Sessions (R-Ala.).
