On Tuesday night, Donald Trump had dinner with Mitt Romney to discuss the possibility of him taking a position in his administration. Rumors have swirled that Trump is considering making Romney his Secretary of State, which has come as a surprise to many given the fact that the former Massachusetts Governor was an outspoken critic of the president-elect during the election.
Now, The Political Insider reported that footage from the dinner show Romney looking extremely uncomfortable as he clearly is trying to kiss up to Trump.
Many Trump supporters have demanded Romney issue a public apology to the president-elect for the things he said about him, which is why it was somewhat shocking when he refused to issue one when he was interviewed by reporters after the dinner. Instead, Romney chose to praise Trump and say how impressed he is with him, without actually saying “sorry.”

Romney told reporters that he had a “wonderful evening” talking to Trump.
“These discussions I’ve had with him have been enlightening and interesting and engaging,” Romney said, according to The Los Angeles Times. “I’ve been impressed by what I’ve seen in the transition effort. The people he’s selected as members of his Cabinet are solid, effective, capable people.”
