NATURAL ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and until recently a vociferous critic of Donald Trump, was greeted by the president-elect and Vice President-elect Mike Pence at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey on Saturday (Nov. 19) where the men are reportedly scheduled to discuss Romney's candidacy as secretary of state. Trump is holding meetings at the New Jersey compound all weekend to choose key members of his new administration. Romney was one of the fiercest Republican critics of Trump during his unorthodox election campaign. On Friday, it was announced that Trump had chosen Republican Senator Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, retired Lieutenant General Michael Flynn to be national security adviser and Republican Congressman Mike Pompeo to head the CIA. Trump announced last week he would hire Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as White House chief of staff and named Stephen Bannon, former head of the conservative website Breitbart News, as his chief strategist and senior counselor.
