Posted on 11/19/2016 7:22:43 PM PST by monkapotamus
"I don't see any way in the world that Mitt Romney would have a cabinet position in the Donald Trump administration," the former Arkansas governor told Uma Pemmaraju on Fox News...
"It would really not so much be an insult to Donald Trump," he said. "It would be an insult to the supporters of Donald Trump, who went out there and faithfully stood behind Donald Trump, to give a guy a job who basically said all those supporters were following a con man.
"That would be an insult to the voters..."
"We had a far-reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States of real significance," Romney told reporters after leaving the meeting. "We discussed those areas and exchanged our views on those topics."
He called it a "very thorough and in-depth discussion in the time we had.
"I appreciate the chance to speak with the president-elect and look forward to the coming administration."
Romney walked away as reporters shouted questions.

I absolutely agree with that statement, but I don’t think that it was that type of meeting...
The media has to understand THEY are NOT picking Trump’s cabinet, he is!!!
I think Huck is telling DJT, not to trust Mittens
I agree. Besides, Romney needs to finish grooming Egg McMuffin for 2020.
Completely agree with Huckabee.
He was on Faux News the other night and gave a really impressive interview.
Said those talking about appointments won’t get them.
Bingo!!! You think the bald McMuffin had one today? Hilarious.....
Which one of them stayed in the race to keep the conservatives? Kept Mclame as the nominee.
Huck is not a Trump advisor.
Those giving public advice to Trump don’t have his ear.
Romney needs to be assimilated in one way or another. He has a vast fundraising network and he is not going away.
Did you see mittens come out of his meeting with Trump. He was visibly shaken. No way in hell he gets even dog catcher. Trump had a Come To Jesus talk with him. He was rattled.
See for yourself.
I like you a lot but...Shut up Huck! Your opinion & your public statements carry no weight where it counts!
I agree. Romney is global elitist vulture who guts companies for profits.
If Trump really thinks he is the best man to implement the TRUMP agenda then I would grudgingly accept. I don’t believe he is though. Sure, talk to him, forgive etc. but let’s be honest, Mitt Romney shouldn’t really be trusted. I trust Trump’s instincts so I would give the choice the benefit of the doubt but again, I think Trump can do much better
You are wrong
I agree with Huck.
IMHO - Mitt Romney initiated this meeting. First word about it was a high ranking republican leaked it, I think it was Romney or his camp.
Reason is he is hoping for a spot, plus he was able to tell Trump his views on the world.
I doubt Trump ever had Romney in mind, this is why Trump had the meeting in NJ, so the press could see Romney coming to kiss Trumps ring.
I doubt Romney is being considered for anything.
I think DJT already knows that. DJT rewards loyalty. Mittens was never loyal. So, what's the best DJT can offer Mittens? Ambassadorship to Libya, would be my guess.
If this is true, it will turn out to be Trumps most brilliant move yet.
Go ahead... ask me why.
