Townhall -- According to RNC Chairman and Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, President-elect Donald Trump's decision about who he will nominate for Secretary of State is far from imminent.
"I don't think anyone should expect anything imminent on this...I wouldn't expect anything today or tomorrow," Priebus said during an interview Wednesday on Fox News. "I think he [Trump] sees a lot of talent in Governor Romney. Nothing is certain and its still up in the air."
"He wants to make sure when he's talking to Mayor Guiliani, he's talking to David Petreaus, Senator Corker, Governor Romney that when he makes the decision, it's the decision that's best for America regardless of background," Priebus continued, adding there is a comfort level that has to be met for the position. "They had a great dinner last night, very encouraging but again, not a done deal, but certainly positive."
Last night President-elect Donald Trump and former Massachusetts Governor and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney met for a second time over dinner to discuss the position. Earlier this week, General David Petreaus met with Trump in New York City.
After dinner Romney said the dinner was productive and that he's been very impressed with the transition process.

You have sacrificed a very successful business, have many members of your family who are also part of the business, you have taken much flack from Democrats and Republicans, and you have worked very hard and continued to fight back against your enemies to be elected president. Romney did everything he could in an attempt to have you defeated and to put America under the evil and corrupt hand of Hillary Clinton.
You should not give Romney anything. He has proven, at least to my way of thinking that he could not now be someone you could trust. Romney was willing to push America and the world into the hands of totalitarian liberalism because of his own ego. That is unforgivable. Romney could perhaps do a decent job, I suppose, in another position in the Trump administration but you are a bigger man than I to even think of Romney as part of your administration.
At present I can only see Rudi Guiliani or John Bolton as serious contenders for Secretary of State, and am surprised that you have not considered Bolton more earnestly. So far I am okay with the people you have put on you team, don't disappoint many of the people who did what they could to help you win the presidency and attempt to 'Make America Great Again.'
