The New York Times Writes: The Case for Mitt Romney

Frank Bruni, an op-ed columnist for The New York Times, released a piece Tuesday titled “The Case for Mitt Romney.”

In it, Bruni shares his opinion about why President-elect Donald Trump should choose former presidential nominee and LDS member Mitt Romney as his Secretary of State.

“With Trump’s cabinet and staff picks so far, he has repaid his staunchest supporters,” Bruni wrote. “With Romney, he would be taking a more inclusive, conciliatory approach that befits his lack of any mandate, tries to move the country past such a divisive campaign and reassures jittery allies. It would be an open-minded, big-hearted, self-aware move that challenges Americans to see him in a more nuanced light. It would help him govern, by signaling that he’s bigger than his grievances.”

Romney and Trump, after a bitter rivalry during the 2016 election season, have confirmed two meetings where a possible cabinet position was discussed.

“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,” Romney told reporters.
