Mitt Romney, Donald Trump to Meet

"The State Department is now in contact with the President-elect's transition representatives".

Republican Senator John McCain, a leading voice on national security matters, said any attempt by the Trump administration to reset ties with Russian Federation would be "unacceptable". As Romney stepped off his campaign plane on the tarmac in Vegas, he noticed that Trump's corporate jet was parked nearby, jutting out in unusual way from its usual spot next to a private hangar.

Afterward, Abe described the meeting as "really cordial" and said he believed he would be able to establish a relationship of trust.

As attorney general, Mr Sessions would be responsible for upholding civil rights amid anger over how white officers treat black suspects after a series of deadly police shootings.

Whether or not the president-elect will actually select a person who had shown such seeming disloyalty for such a high-level position in his cabinet remains to be seen.

Mr Trump has only reaffirmed accusations of racism with the appointment of Breitbart executive chairman Steve Bannon as chief strategist. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is rumored to be a candidate for Secretary of State.

President-elect Donald Trump will meet this weekend with former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, according to multiple reports. Romney would also represent a significant departure after he made a speech railing against Trump during the campaign. Meanwhile, McClatchy reports Newt Gingrich-previously rumored for a number of important posts in Trump's cabinet-says he won't be taking any official position in the administration.

The Florida governor said friendly things about Trump throughout the campaign and gave him a strong endorsement as soon as he won the Florida primary. Trump responded by repeatedly referring to Romney as a "loser". Once the calls were arranged, they were connected without being asked for any verification of their identities or measures to verify the authenticity of the call. And with his transition team a bit behind, he will be doing some cramming.

Aides named more than a dozen people who are either candidates for jobs in the Trump administration or were meeting with Trump to provide advice. The former Mayor of NY has also been mentioned as a possible candidate for Secretary of State. That's the agency Perry infamously forgot the name of during a 2011 debate.

Republicans aren't the only ones flocking to Trump Tower on Thursday. Presidents-elect generally don't announce major nominees like Secretary of State within nine days of the election anyway. "Organizing matters. Being informed on the issues matters", Obama said. "I don't remember being criticized for it". Trump met with Ted Cruz earlier in the week. "There always is this challenge of meshing campaign staff with transition staff with campaign staff".

"Some of this is part of a natural process", said Chen, a CNN contributor.
