General David Petraeus is set to meet today with President-elect Donald Trump to discuss the Sec. of State position.
Previously Trump has met with Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney.
Donald Trump has come under fire for even considering Mitt Romney, who publicly denounced him during the contentious election, calling the President-elect “a conman” and “a fraud.”
New York Rep, Chris Collins, a Trump’s transition executive committee member, said in an interview on CNN that Mitt is a “self-serving egomaniac, who has a “chip on his shoulder, who still thinks he should be president and might not take Trump’s direction.”
Kellyanne Conway speaking Sunday on NBC’s Meet The Press said she’s,
“Just astonished at the breathtaking volume and intensity of blow-back that I see toward the possibility of Romney serving as the nation’s top diplomat.”
Appearing on ABC’s This Week With George Stephanopoulos Conway said,
“We’re all for party unity, I don’t think a cost of admission for party unity has to be the secretary of state position.”
Conway also said that Romney hadn’t confirmed he’d even voted for Trump.
It’s good to see Trump’s campaign is fiercely loyal to him. We need that in Washington – loyal public servants who put country first rather than trying to line their pockets.
And putting aside my personal thoughts on Romney ( he should be relegated to the dustbin of history and forgotten) I think it shows Trump’s flexibility and keen intellect to even meet with him.
Petraeus led the very successful surge in Iraq for George W. Bush and followed that by heading the CIA for President Obama.
When Petraeus was forced out at CIA, Trump said at the time,
General Petraeus should stop apologising and get on with his life. He is a good man and should have a great future.

It looks like Trump just may make that great future a reality if he picks him for this critical post.
Do you agree with Trump?
