President-elect Trump had dinner earlier tonight with Mitt Romney.
Trump is considering to appoint Romney to the post of Sec. of State — despite Romney’s past comments and despite the uproar that some Trump fans are causing — in disagreement with Romney [potentially] being appointed. Kellyanne Conway said that many Trump supporters would feel “betrayed” if President-elect Trump appointed Romney to the Sec. of State post.
Trump’s choice for his White House Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, joined President-elect Trump and former Massachusetts Governor / 2012 GOP Presidential Candidate, Mitt Romney at the dinner. The dinner took place in an exclusive restaurant, Nougatine, which is located in Trump International Hotel and Tower [midtown Manhattan, NYC].
The restaurant is rated as one of the most elite restaurants in all of NYC. It is truly a classy, elegant, and prestigious place to dine.
After the dinner concluded, Romney spoke to some media representatives — and Romney had this to say:
“I’ve had a wonderful evening with President-elect Trump. We had another discussion about affairs throughout the world and these discussions I have had with him have been enlightening and interesting and engaging. I have enjoyed them very, very much. He won the general election and he continues with a message of inclusion and bringing people together and his vision is something which obviously connected with the American people in a very powerful way.”
Here’s the rest of what he said:
You can watch and listen to Romney, in this videos, if you’d like.
That is all that Mitt Romney had to say in person. Romney has still not made any public comments about his past statements, which were very demeaning and insulting statements against the President-elect. The insults that Romney said were very vicious and it happened back in March of this year, during a press conference in which he was trying to ‘expose’ Trump. Romney did eventually congratulate Trump, after Trump won on Nov. 8th.
Many people believe that Romney truly thought that Trump never had a shot to win the election. Therefore, people believe that Romney wanted some media attention — and got some by going on his own personal mission to hinder Trump in anyway he could. And then right after Trump won on Nov. 8th, Romney did a complete ‘about-face’ and congratulated Trump on winning. Up until that point [of Trump’s Presidential victory], Romney publicly supported Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson [and we all presume that Romney voted for him, as well]. Romney constantly tweeted out messages of disdain for Trump throughout his campaign … One of Mitt Romney’s many tweets that condemned Trump said that he would not have accepted Trump’s endorsement [back in 2012] if he knew Trump used such rhetoric as he had been using in his campaign. There are so many tweets in which Romney insults, demeans, and bashes Trump — over an array of different reasons. Romney sent out another brutal, insulting tweet just at the beginning of October, roughly a month before Election Day. Romney had this to say after Trump’s lewd jokes from 2005 were leaked.
So ever since Trump won [on Nov. 8th] and became the President-elect, Romney has basically tried to push past all of the terrible comments he made about Trump. Romney went from being one of the most prominent Republican figures that condemned Trump — to being a major sycophant of Trump’s, in just a matter of days. That’s what happens when you become the President of the USA, folks. LOL!
So Romney has still NOT addressed [publicly, at least] the negative statements he relentlessly made about President-elect Trump for months on months on months. But we do know that Romney is still in the running for the Sec. of State position. So is former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani [who is a longtime friend and big-time supporter of President-elect Trump], also Tennessee Senator Bob Corker [reportedly] has a shot at being named Sec. of State, and General Patraeus is being considered as well.
Thank you for your support!
