A senior adviser to Donald Trump said Mitt Romney’s meeting on Saturday was an opportunity for the former GOP nominee to acknowledge the president-elect and “kiss his ring,” according to The New York Times.

Trump and Romney met privately Saturday at Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, N.J., amid speculation that Romney could be tapped as a secretary of State in Trump’s incoming administration.

The pair feuded for much of the 2016 presidential election, with Romney delivering a blistering speech in March calling Trump a “phony” and “con man.” Trump, who had endorsed Romney in 2012, bashed the former GOP nominee as a “choke artist” for losing to President Obama.

After their meeting Saturday, Romney told reporters that the pair had a “far-reaching conversation” about foreign policy and he indicated he is looking forward to Trump’s administration, though didn’t say whether the two discussed a possible cabinet position.
