Trump to meet with one of his biggest critics: Mitt Romney

During the election, Senator Sessions proved to be one of Donald Trump's earliest and most faithful elected supporters. He is expected to discuss it with Trump during the meeting.

In other White House transition news, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told reporters he's not going to be a member of Trump's Cabinet.

Romney and Trump traded sharp barbs during the campaign.

A spokesman for Donald Trump says the US president-elect is "absolutely" open to selecting former rivals to serve in his cabinet.

Yep, it's starting to look more of the same in Washington. Mr Trump on Twitter described the call as "very nice!".

After some initial turmoil and turnover in his transition team, including the demotion of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Trump is packing his schedule with contenders for administration jobs.

Trump spokesman Jason Miller said that the meetings are not only about filling specific roles in his administration but also hearing from the "best, brightest and most-qualified people". The event, in which Trump strolled by reporters repeatedly to talk up his "tremendous" hotel, would foreshadow the mogul's unusual campaign for the presidency four years later. But with Trump's own team in transition, that was no easy feat.

Of course, the report is muddled with speculation that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, South Carolina Gov Nikki Haley, and former United Nations ambassador John Bolton are of for the top State Department job.

One close friend expressed healthy skepticism that Romney would ever serve in the President-elect's Cabinet.

Despite actively campaigning against Donald Trump's Republican White House run, former Massachusetts Gov.

Meanwhile, the Alabama Senator continues to appear as an nearly inevitable pick for Trump's cabinet. After all, Trump isn't exactly someone who forgives and forgets. "Donald Trump will make that decision", Sessions said.

Trump's outreach to Haley and Romney, seemed to demonstrate a possible willingness to assemble a team of rivals in his government - which would be a surprising pivot for a man who wrote in his 1997 book "The Art of the Comeback" that one of his maxims was to "get even" and that he believed "in an eye for an eye".

"I think that what that meeting suggests". Holding a cabinet post would have been "not physically doable". He is a potential treasury secretary in the Trump administration.

Other names include Rudy Giuliani, the combative former NY mayor and staunch Trump defender who would likely face scrutiny over a slew of business dealings, and hawkish former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton.

"In the words of Vice President Biden just yesterday after meeting with Mr. Pence, nobody should expect the government to be formed overnight", Conway said Thursday morning on MSNBC's "Morning Joe". The "Trump under-performed Romney" meme was launched by grabbing an incomplete total from 2016 and comparing it to final official counts from 2012 and 2008, which were logged days after those elections were held, and the last votes had been counted.
