President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday met with an eclectic mix of potential Cabinet picks, including high-profile Republican foe Mitt Romney, while also launching a Twitter storm boasting about settling his multi-million dollar Trump University lawsuit and criticizing the cast of the hit Broadway musical "Hamilton" for lecturing his vice president-elect about “American values.”
When not taking to Twitter, Trump spent the afternoon ensconced in his posh golf club in Bedminster, N.J., where the high-profile guests who paraded through included Romney, a former GOP presidential candidate Trump is believed to be considering for secretary of State. Also getting face-time with Trump on Saturday were Michelle Rhee, the firebrand California education activist and nemesis of teachers unions, who is a contender for the post of Education secretary. The meetings are scheduled to continue Sunday.
The most anticipated sit-down involved Romney, who during the campaign was sharply critical of the president-elect’s character and policy positions. The former governor shook hands with Trump when he arrived at Trump National Golf Club and told reporters 90 minutes later that the pair spoke about U.S. interests around the globe.
