Washington : Donald Trump is the “man who can lead the US to a better future”, his former bitter critic and 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney has said, asserting that he was impressed by the President-elect’s post victory speeches and selection of his team members, including Nikki Haley, reports PTI.
“I happen to think that America’s best days are ahead of us. I think you’re going to see America continue to lead the world in this century,” Romney, a former Governor of Massachusetts, told reporters after having a dinner with Trump in a New York restaurant. This was the second meeting between the two after Trump was elected as the President on November 8. He would take the oath of office on January 20 next year. “What I’ve seen through these discussions I’ve had with President-elect Trump, as well as what we’ve seen in his speech the night of his victory, as well as the people he’s selected as part of his transition, all of those things combined give me increasing hope that President-elect Trump is the very man who can lead us to that better future,” said Romney, who is now being considered for the position of Secretary of State.
