Romney and Trump might be meeting this weekend to discuss secretary of state position


Could the same person who refused to endorse Donald Trump be who Trump taps to be his secretary of state?

Maybe. Donald Trump and Mitt Romney are scheduled to meet this weekend to discuss various things -- among them, the secretary of state position, according to NBC News.

The meeting with Romney comes after the news cycle became saturated with reports of a possible Rudy Giuliani addition to Trump's Cabinet.

The two republicans are expected to discuss "governing moving forward" and a possible role in Trump's cabinet, according to CNN.

Sources close to Romney told CNN that Romney has told friends he's interested in serving in government again and one job he is eyeing is secretary of state.

Some on Twitter are welcoming the speculation.

The former Massachusetts governor developed a somewhat tense relationship with Trump this year. In March, Romney called Trump a "phony" and a "fraud.

Trump has called Romney a "loser" and said that Romney begged for his endorsement in 2012 and would've "dropped to his knees" to get it.

During the 2016 primaries, Romney was a staunch supporter of Gov. John Kasich. When the election ended in November, Romney reportedly called Trump to congratulate him.

Other names that have been mentioned by various sources have been former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and  Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker.
