Top Trump allies warn president-elect against selecting Romney for secretary of state

Despite what the majority of the mainstream media and most pollsters predicted, Donald Trump was able to pull off one of the biggest upsets in modern political history. Romney refused to endorse Mr. Trump during the Republican primary cycle, even actively and openly blasting the real estate mogul for his controversial rhetoric and policy stances.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Fox News host Sean Hannity also voiced their concerns over Romney possibly being tapped for the job.

Tufts University Political Science Professor, Jeff Berry, thinks Romney would be an excellent choice for Secretary of State because he is an expert in worldwide economics, a respected businessman and has stature on the global stage.

With advisers locked in an intense debate over Romney and Giuliani, a third contender for secretary of state has surfaced. In a second, she said Henry Kissinger and George Shultz "flew around the world less, counseled POTUS close to home more".

It is unclear when a selection will be announced.

So far, Trump has made good on what his pre-election transition team said in DC meetings with industry and policy specialists: His Cabinet has drawn from inside and outside of Washington. This is not an argument over whether it would be better to choose an experienced foreign policy hand or to pick a political ally, but rather it is a fight over which unqualified individual with no foreign policy experience to speak of should get the job.

Mr. Trump's transition team has floated the former MA governor's name for appointment to the post, and the two men met privately over the weekend in New Jersey. CNN reports that Kellyanne Conway, Trump's former campaign manager criticized the pick and Mitt.

Jeremy Peters and Maggie Haberman of The New York Times reported that Mr. Trump has become wary of picking Giuliani as our top diplomat, given his consulting group has a contract with Qatar and his high-priced speaking engagements.
