After a dinner meeting with Donald Trump at Jean-Georges restaurant in New York, Mitt Romney delivered a glowing review of the president-elects leadership during the transition.
Mr. Romney, who was invited to the dinner purportedly for a follow-up interview for the job of secretary of state, described it as a wonderful evening and said that he was impressed with Mr. Trumps handling of his upset victory in the election.
We had another discussion about affairs throughout the world and these discussions Ive had with him have been enlightening, and interesting, and engaging, Mr. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, told reporters outside the restaurant.
Mr. Romney said that from what hes seen of Mr. Trumps leadership during the transition, he was optimistic that Americas best days are ahead of us.

Like Donald said. “I could have told Romney to get on his knees, and he would have. He begged.”
Exactly what Romney is doing now.
Maybe that’s what this is about.
If that’s true then Mr. Trump plays it even harder than I thought he would.
I hope he goes one by one through them all and humiliates them. One by one.
He could do one a week for 4 years, and still not be done at the end of it. Bwahahaha.
Romney speaks well of Trump? Definitely qualifies as news!
All I can say is that I wish Romney had kept his mouth shut earlier this year. I never liked him as a political figure but I always felt that I could trust him in a business deal and I'd never be ashamed of him in public office. His reputation really took a hit after his antics during the primary season.
The words of praise from Mr. Romney was the closest hes come to retracting his sharp criticism during the campaign, which included calling Mr. Trump a fraud and a phony who was reckless and unfit for office and who would endanger America and the world.
He did something I tried to do and was unsuccessful in. He won the general election and he continues with a message of inclusion and bringing people together and his vision is something which obviously connected with the American people in a very powerful way, said Mr. Romney.
I think youre going to see America continue to lead the world in this century. And what Ive seen through these discussions Ive had with President-elect Trump, as well as what weve seen in his speech the night of his victory, as well as the people hes selected as part of his transition, all of those things combined give me increasing hope that President-elect Trump is the very man who can lead us to that better future, he said.
Watching that statement I can’t imagine that he will be SOS. He struggles to be complimentary of the President-Elect. The biggest indicator that he didn’t work Make America Great Again into his statement. That’s the sense I got, I’ll be surprised if he is the SOS. We’ll see
I’m guessing he is getting the job.
Something about Priebus being at the dinner seems to make me believe that.
NO....never trust mittens, ever. What he did to Trump during the election cycle was horrible. traitor, globalist. NO>
I am certain that Trump or his people call ahead to see if there are any reporters present. If he wishes to be seen and reported on via cell phone, then he will go.
I am resigned that this is a trumpers get on board....Romney is going to be SOS signal...or some post. But probably SOS.
People are in a tizzy on Twitter that he dared to go to one of his places which means free advertising for his brand.
That piece of rat S41t can go to hell. What a damned joke. That pu$$y wants a job so he caves at the feet of DJT!! Go to hell you bastard!Trump is way to smart for this faggot.
Looks like this is the price of getting his agenda past Ryan. I can live with it.
GHW Bush trashed Ronald Reagan for months and months during the nomination campaign. Vicious, dirty stuff. “Voodoo economics.” Remember that?
Reagan asked him to be Vice Prez, and Bush served well as a vice prez for 8 yrs.
If you were half the man Trump is you might just have been president for the last 4 years Mitt. As it was you turned out to be another John McCain.... A LOSER!
Hope you really enjoyed your free dinner. Now go away.
Trump told him he was going to convert to Mormon, and would build a Interstellar Trump Tower next to whatever planet Mitt inhabits in the afterlife.
Ambassador to some third world country, and keep him there.
