#Kellyanne Conway is not a fan of #Mitt Romney, but that's not stopping #Donald Trump from meeting with the former governor of Massachusetts and 2012 Republican presidential nominee for a second time before he makes his pick for Secretary of State.
Less than ten days after their first meeting, Romney will return to Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday for his second session with Donald Trump while a feud brews within his transition team about who the President-elect should pick for the highest-ranking member of the cabinet.
Although there are other names rumored to be in the running for the Secretary of State position including Senator Bob Corker (R-TN), retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, Romney is creating the most buzz — and the majority of it is negative, especially from Kellyanne Conway, who currently serves as a senior adviser to the transition team.
Kellyanne Conway doesn't like Mitt Romney one bit — why?
Conway is taking plenty of heat from Trump's team over her extreme criticism of Mitt Romney and the President-elect himself isn't too pleased that she let her not so warm-and-fuzzy feelings be known during an interview with "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd on Sunday.
I did tell him privately. And I'll respect his decision. Point is the volume & intensity of grassroots resistance to Romney is breathtaking https://t.co/bknmfGZ13a— Kellyanne Conway (@KellyannePolls) November 27, 2016
And she didn't stop there — Conway continued her public attacks against on Twitter, telling her followers that she has received a "deluge of communications" from Trump loyalists who have warned that Mitt Romney could be "dangerous" as Secretary of State.
According to the Washington Post's sources, Kellyanne Conway's biggest beef with Romney is that he went overboard with his opposition of Trump during the election and his efforts to discredit Trump "shouldn't be forgotten."
Back in March, Romney called Trump a "phony" and a "fraud" and warned the GOP that there would be long-term consequences if he got elected. Now, Donald Trump is just weeks away from becoming the POTUS and Romney seems to be making peace with the guy he spoke out against, something that doesn't sit well with Conway.
So, it doesn't seem like she has a personal problem with Mitt. Instead, it appears she's simply being loyal to President-elect Trump and acting as a spokesperson of sorts for the Romney haters in the Trump base.
