Trump Reportedly Set To Turn Down Mitt Romney’s Secretary Of State Bid

It’s been quite a week for 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

After meeting with President-elect Donald Trump last weekend, Romney was riding high and thought to be one of the top picks for secretary of state in the incoming administration.

But since then, Trump supporters and surrogates ― and now even his campaign director ― have taken jabs at the former Massachusetts governor.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) questioned Romney’s loyalty on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday and expressed concern that the former nominee’s presidential aspirations might interfere with him working for a President Trump.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said in the same show that offering the position to Romney would be an insult to Trump supporters.

On Friday, Fox News’ Ed Henry reported that officials in the Trump camp want Romney to make a public apology for his comments during the campaign in exchange for the Cabinet position.
