The president-elect is reportedly considering the 2012 GOP nominee to be his secretary of State, but Schiff said it's just another "head fake" from Trump.
"In this new world, I would love Mitt Romney at the State Department. I think he would be a consummate diplomat. I think he could come up to speed on foreign policy issues but I think it's a total head fake," Schiff said on CNN's "State of the Union."
"I think this is Donald Trump still being the entertainer, still running a show where he wants to build suspense. He alone knows which contestant will be the winner, and I think it's more a nod to give the appearance of bringing people together but I would be very surprised if he chooses Romney."
Romney and Trump met over the weekend, but he offered no clues about whether he would accept a role in the Trump administration.
