This dynamic between President-elect Donald Trump, and 2012 Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is fascinating to me.
During his campaign for President, Donald Trump called Mitt Romney a "choker". He also said that Mitt Romney was ready to "take to his knees", in order to gain Donald Trump's endorsement, when Mitt was running for President in 2012.
At about this same time (March 2016), Mitt Romney held a special 15-minute televised press briefing, to clearly spell out why he felt that his fellow Republican, Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump, was a FRAUD, a FAKE, a DANGEROUS SCAM ARTIST...and other very personal insults.
Video of this press briefing: www.youtube.com...
Fast Forward to November 19, 2016:
Despite Mitt Romney's obvious disdain for Mr. Trump as a human being, he is now invited to interview for the important U.S. Secretary of State positon, by newly minted President-elect, Donald J. Trump.
A week after that interview, people within Trump's inner circle of his Presidential transition team (Kelly Anne Conway & Newt Gingrich) did something totally unprecedented. They hit the TV news circuits, on Thanksgiving weekend, to say that a large number of Trump supporters feel that Mitt Romney would be a horrible Secretary of State, due to his lack of loyalty, personal insults of Trump, and a big difference of opinion with Donald Trump, on foreign policy matters.
Now here we are, 3 days later, and Donald Trump is having Dinner with Mitt Romney at a restaurant in Trump Tower, New York City.
Story: www.cnn.com... (Doesn't Mitt look "annoyed" ?)
After the dinner tonight, Mitt Romney comes outside and declares that, "America's Best Days are Ahead of Us!"
Do you think that Donald Trump and Mitt Romney have "buried the hatchet" and are preparing for a serious, on the same page, working relationship, with Mitt Romney as Secretary of State?
Or, is Donald Trump perhaps stringing Mitt Romney along, getting his hopes up, before offering him a janitorial job..or none at all, in retaliation for that 15 minutes of nationally televised insults from Mitt Romney on March 3rd?
Any other theories???
