Donald Trump met potential Secretary of State Mitt Romney at Jean Georges, a three-Michelin star New York City restaurant on Tuesday.
Now this would have been any other meeting between former presidential candidates, if not for Romney’s rocky relationship with the president-elect.
Joined by their wives and with RNC chair Reince Priebus, the three men dined like old friends. While Romney is eyed as future Secretary of State, Priebus has already been brought into the Trump Train as his new chief of staff.
Mitt Romney, Reince Priebus, Donald Trump Menu As Interesting As Their Meeting
According to CNN, the three men ordered a young garlic soup with thyme and sautéed frog legs, and diver scallops with caramelized cauliflower and caper-raisin emulsion as appetizers. Priebus and Trump ordered a prime sirloin with citrus glazed carrots for their main course. Romney ordered lamb chops with a mushroom bolognese sauce. For dessert, the three men ordered chocolate cake.
However, what’s more interesting than their choice of food was the topic for the evening. It is no secret that Mitt Romney was a harsh critic of Donald Trump during the campaign. He even went as far as to call the then-GOP nominee a “fraud.”
Romney And Trump Already Put Their Past Behind Them?
None of that animosity seemed present at the dinner with Romney even telling reporters that he had a “wonderful evening” with Trump. NBC reported that the former Massachusetts governor even showered praise to his former adversary.
As for the president-elect, when asked whether the former 2012 presidential candidate will be Secretary of State, he simply responded, “Well, we’re going to see what happens.”
Romney revealed that aside from his prospective Cabinet position, the three men also discussed affairs throughout the world. “I have had with him have been enlightening and interesting and engaging. I have enjoyed them very, very much,” he said.
Many prominent people also appeared to take interest in the meeting Donald Trump and Mitt Romney. Taking to Twitter, each had their own opinions and reactions from the dinner.
