Fox News reports that Donald Trump’s still thinking of offering Mitt Romney the job of Secretary of State. The catch: Trump wants a public apology.
A transition official told Fox’s Ed Henry that some in Trump’s inner circle want the former Massachusetts governor to apologize in order to be seriously considered for the secretary of State.
Trump is reportedly considering whether to pick Romney or former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for the coveted cabinet position.
Giuliani is the preferred choice of Trump’s loyalists and grassroots supporters, while Romney is a favorite of establishment conservatives.
Here’s Romney, before lining up behind the new power:
“Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. He gets a free trip to the White House and all we get is this lousy hat … There is a dark irony in his boasts of his sexual exploits during the Vietnam War, while at the same time, John McCain – who he has mocked – was imprisoned and tortured.”
