As president-elect, Donald Trump’s transition team makes their recommendations for cabinet positions, some of their choices have caused some controversy as to how to proceed forward with the approval process.
One of those recommendations was former candidate, Mitt Romney who was highly critical of Donald Trump, during the campaign, almost to the point of being personally insulting.
Now the question has arisen whether or not Romney should be made to apologize for his personal attacks against Trump before he is allowed to serve on Trump’s cabinet.
As Breitbart stated:
“There are conversations going on whether Mitt Romney has to issue some kind of public apology” to Trump, Fox News reporter Ed Henry says.
During a speech in March, Romney criticized Trump’s proposed trade policies, his businesses and called him a “con man,” and “a fraud” and “a phony.”
“His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” Romney said at the time. “He’s playing the members of the American public for suckers. He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.”
Now that Trump has won the presidency, Romney is acting like the loyal hunting dog sitting at his master’s side, waiting to be thrown a bone…..like a cabinet appointment, possibly.
Romney traveled to Trump’s golf course in New Jersey to meet with Trump last week, raising speculations that he could serve in the administration, even as a possible Secretary of State.
The New York Times reports that there is a debate in Trump’s circle about whether Romney should serve as Secretary of State.
“Mr. Trump himself has told aides that he believes Mr. Romney ‘looks the part’ and would make a fine secretary of state,” a senior Trump official told the Times.
After watching Romney slander Trump in this election and Romney getting trounced by Obama in 2012, no one here wants Romney anywhere near the oval office.
He’s already proved what a coward and a loser he is but my opinion isn’t the one that matters. It will be president Trump who makes that call!
