Romney Shifts From Trump Critic To Admiring Job Seeker

While Mitt Romney is not apologizing for his derogatory remarks about Donald Trump during the presidential campaign, he claims to have become a fan of the president-elect now that he wants to be secretary of state.

The former Massachusetts governor, who was the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, told The Huffington Post that Trump deserves credit for his “message of inclusion and bringing people together” in the weeks following his surprise victory in the Nov. 8 election. Romney also lauded the president-elect’s appointments and nominations, such as Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general, Georgia Rep. Tom Price for Health and Human Services Department secretary, and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley for United Nations ambassador.

“All of those things combined give me increasing hope that President-elect Trump is the very man who can lead us,” Romney told the news media after having dinner with Trump on Tuesday. It was the second time the two men had discussed the State Department position, which former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and others also are seeking.

HuffPost noted that Romney had harsh words for the real-estate tycoon during the race for the White House. “Donald Trump is a phony; a fraud,” ex-governor declared in March. “His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the members of the American public for suckers. He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat.”
