SALT LAKE CITY — Mitt Romney, one of Donald Trump’s harshest critics during the election campaign, will reportedly meet with the president-elect this weekend in New York.

​The two men are apparently to talk about governing moving forward and potentially a role for Romney in Trump’s Cabinet, including the secretary of state position, according to various news reports.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., told reporters Thursday in New York it’s good that Trump is meeting with Romney and other talented people whom he’ll need good relationships with.

Local political observers expressed surprise that Trump and Romney would meet.
