It looks like it’s come down to four names for President-Elect Donald Trump to make his decision of filling the Secretary of State cabinet position. For a couple of the names, he’s met with them multiple times so they have to have a leg up on others. On Tuesday night, Trump met with Mitt Romney for a 2nd time for dinner to discuss things.
Some social media supporters are not happy Trump is even speaking to Romney, but it seems they don’t know anything about Trump either.
From Associated Press:
President-elect Donald Trump is weighing four finalists to lead the State Department, one of the most powerful and prominent Cabinet positions.
Spokesman Jason Miller says Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee, and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani are on the short list. A separate transition official said Trump is also considering former CIA Director David Petraeus and Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker for the job.
A decision on the secretary of state post is not believed to be imminent.
Trump held a private dinner with Romney Tuesday night, their second meeting to discuss the Cabinet position. The president-elect also met with Corker and Petraeus this week.
Giuliani was initially seen as a lock for the State Department, but questions about his international business ties and his public campaigning for the job are said to have given Trump pause.
Whoever Trump chooses to be Secretary of State, I will support Trump period, hands down. He’s taking his time, going over pros and cons and we elected him because he was able to beat the establishment, defeat the media and GOP elite so he holds the cards right now.
I will serve the president at his pleasure but I will hold his choice accountable for whatever they do in office but I will also hold Trump responsible for whatever pick he does make. That’s how I will handle this choice.
