(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) President-elect Trump will hold a second meeting with Mitt Romney this week to discuss the position of secretary of state, much to the chagrin of some in his circle who have said Romney is undeserving of the top diplomatic post.
The follow-up meeting is slated for Tuesday at Trump Tower, according to transition officials, nearly two weeks after the incoming Republican president and Vice President-elect Mike Pence first met with Romney at Trump national golf club in Bedminster, N.J.
"The president-elect is really taking these meetings very seriously," the officials told reporters Monday. "He wants to be sure he's making the absolute best decision for all of these positions where folks may be joining the administration."
