Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a possible candidate for secretary of state, met with President-elect Donald Trump Saturday and said the two discussed foreign policy.

“We had a far reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States with real significance,” Romney said.

“We discussed those areas, and exchanged our views on those topics – a very thorough and in-depth discussion in the time we had,” he added. “And I appreciate the chance to speak with the president-elect and I look forward to the coming administration and the things that it’s going to be doing.”

Romney met with Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence for approximately an hour and a half at Trump’s golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

A source with intimate knowledge of Trump’s thinking told The Daily Caller that the president-elect wants to appoint Romney as secretary of state.
