After meeting with the President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday, November 19th, Mitt Romney is now a contender for the position of Secretary of State. According to The Wall Street Journal, who interviewed Mike Pence stating that Mitt Romney “is under active and serious consideration to be Donald Trump’s Secretary of State.”

With Romney being a potential candidate, the position is more competitive than ever. Before his arrive, Business Insider reported the following candidates for the spot: Rudi Giuliani, Bob Corker, John Bolton, New Gingrich, and Nikki Haley.

It was only six months ago when Mitt Romney blasts Trump and his campaign during the presidential election. On March 3rd, the former Governor of Massachusetts criticized Trump after finding out he was picked as the Republican Nominee. According the LA Times, Romney stated, “Let me put it plainly, if we Republican choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.” Not only that but Romney also bashed Trump’s policies when he stated, “His domestic policies would lead to recession, his foreign policies would make America less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgement to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that Americans would cease to be a shining city on a hill.”

It’s a strange turn of events that Mitt Romney is in now. After showing his displeasure against Trump, he still wants a part of the office. After losing to the 2012 Presidential Election, Romney has been working off-scene; but his return in 2016 could potentially hold the White House together. Paul Ryan even calls the choice “reasonable”.

However, despite the approval of certain people, Rudi Giuliani is still a top contender. It won’t be long until the decision is eventually revealed.
