Early last week, reports began circulating that former presidential nominee and LDS politician Mitt Romney would be meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. Romney has confirmed the meeting took place over the weekend.

“We had a far-reaching conversation with regard to the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States of real significance. We discussed those areas and exchanged our views on those topics,” Romeny told reporters. Many speculated the meeting would be about a place for Romney in Trump’s cabinet, specifically the secretary of state position. Romney did not comment on this theory and gave no information if he was offered or is considering a place in the Trump administration.

However, Vice President-elect Mike Pence did confirm to “Fox News Sunday” that Romney was under consideration for secretary of state.

“The President-elect was very grateful that Gov. Mitt Romney came in. They had a good meeting. It was a warm and substantive exchange. I know he is under active consideration to be secretary of state of the United States along with some other distinguished Americans.”

The meeting comes after a bitter war of words between the two during the 2016 election. However, Romney did congratulate Trump once he won the election.
