President-elect Donald Trump seemed to be honing in on his choice for secretary of state on Monday, holding a meeting with former CIA chief David Petraeus and announcing a second sit down with Mitt Romney as top aides squabble over who should be nominated for the high-profile position.
Petraeus, who in 2015 was sentenced to two years' probation and a $100,000 fine for admitting to providing classified information to his mistress, visited Trump Tower in Manhattan on Monday where the two held a one-hour meeting amid speculation Petraeus is being considered for a top post in the Trump administration.
"He basically walked us around the world, showed a great grasp of the variety of the challenges that are out there and some of the opportunities as well," Petraeus told reporters. "So, very good conversation and we'll see where it goes from here."
