Mitt Romney met with President-elect Donald TrumpDonald TrumpPredictions of disaster for Democrats aren't guarantees of midterm failure A review of President Biden's first year on border policy Hannity after Jan. 6 texted McEnany 'no more stolen election talk' in five-point plan for Trump MORE on Saturday to discuss foreign policy as Trump continues to mull potential cabinet picks.
Romney emerged from the clubhouse at Trump's golf course in New Jersey a little over an hour after he arrived for the meeting, which comes amid speculation that Trump is considering him as a possible pick for secretary of State.
“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.
“We discussed those areas and exchanged our views on those topics. A very thorough and in-depth discussion in the time we had and appreciate the chance to speak with the president-elect and look forward to the coming administration.”
Romney did not say whether the two discussed a possible cabinet position.
The 2012 GOP presidential nominee was a vocal critic of Trump's candidacy and blasted the businessman during a speech in March, accusing Trump of conning Americans.
"Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud," Romney said at the time. "His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat."
Trump's transition team has said that some of the president-elect’s meetings this weekend are to solicit advice, and not all of his guests at the Bedminster, N.J., club are under consideration for cabinet posts.
