The Daily Caller is reporting this morning that a source close to the Trump transition team is saying that he will, in fact, appoint Mitt Romney as Secretary of State.
Vince Coglianese, Editor-in-Chief of the Caller reports that Trump will also appoint Gen. James Mattis to head the Department of Defense and Steven Mnuchin to run the Treasury Department.
By Friday, Trump had narrowed down cabinet roles for Mattis to either Defense or State, but prefers Romney to take the latter job, the source tells The Daily Caller.
Mattis and Romney were scheduled to meet with the president-elect Saturday at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Romney and Mnuchin were both spotted by reporters there Saturday afternoon.
