The transition team on Thursday officially confirmed Trump had narrowed the list to four. Then sources told Fox News the names were Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee; former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani; Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee; and retired Gen. David Petraeus, also a former CIA director.
However, other names have surfaced, including John Bolton, a former U.S ambassador to the United Nations; Rex Tillerson, Exxons chief executive officer; and most recently John Huntsman, a former U.S. ambassador to China and Utah GOP governor whose daughter Abby is a Fox News general assignment reporter.

I think he has already had a meeting with Bolton. I hope it’s Bolton or Rudy.
John F’n Kerry?
The problem that Trump faces in finding a SOS is that he needs someone who is capable not just of right thinking, but right acting. We have lots of people who can intellectualize [sorry for the use of the word, but it fits when talking about what goes on in DC] about what our foreign policy should be. There are few people, if any, who can lead an organization the size of the State Department and get it to DO anything.
Why the F would Romney and Betrayus be on that list?
It’s gonna be someone that no one will expect.
Bolton protected Mr. Trump on China
... while RomneyCARE attacked him behind the scenes.
I think Trump needs Rudy here....he has so many facets...and knows everybody...and the system and he’s not afraid of anyone.
Exxon CEO makes sense from that perspective
He could really make the liberals’ head explode by selecting a woman to be the next SOS. Has he ever considered the woman who ran against him in the primary election — wassername again?
Bolton would be a Trump loyalist and he is already a patriot. Trump does not need more.
Not John Huntsman. I’d prefer Romney to him.
If he did that, he will be assured of only one term.
Firing a whole lot of motherf***ers and terrorizing the rest never hurts. Trump needs to EVISCERATE the civil service
Seriously, these folks and also Exxon CEO for SOS consideration?
I tweeted Trump, his son, his campaign manager and asked about Col Allen West.
>Its gonna be someone that no one will expect<
Carly Fiorina. She does know the Health Minister of DirkaDirkastan. Hugh Hewitt verified that.
No, has to be WASP. There are too many countries in this world that do no respect women and having to talk to them/negotiate with them is demeaning to them.
Stop with the Allen West posts on every thread. West is a man of little accomplishment and even less conservatism. He has an ACU rating lower than Rubio.
