Transcript for Donald Trump's Dinner With Mitt Romney
The latest on the trump trabant. The president-elect making key appointments to his economic team as 13eklation swirls around Mitt Romney as secretary of state after that intimate dinner last night. Our chief white house correspondent Jon Karl is on the story. Good morning, Jon. Reporter: Good morning, George. It must have been quite a dinner. After a gourmet meal at one of the restaurants in one of trump's buildings here in new York, Mitt Romney who once called trump a dangerous fraud and a phony emerged to praise the president-elect as someone with an inclusive message who will lead America to a brighter future. The longtime rivals were greeted with applause as they entered the pricey French restaurant inside the trump international hotel and tower. Trump's new chief of staff reince Priebus in tow. Garlic soup with sauteed frog legs. Prime sirloin for trump, lamb chops for Romney. Romney called trump a fraud during the campaign. As a potential secretary of state. I happen to think that America's best days are ahead of us. President-elect trump is the very man who can lead us to that better future. Reporter: But there is serious opposition to Romney from some of trump's top aides. The former Massachusetts governor isn't the only option on trump's radar. Another contender, Tennessee senator Bob corker, also met with trump about the job on Tuesday. He needs to choose someone he's very comfortable with that he knows there's going to be no daylight between him and them. Reporter: Trump is quickly filling up other cabinet posts including his first major economic appointment. Treasury secretary trump is expected to tap his campaign finance chairman, Steven mnuchin who spent 17 years working for Goldman Sachs. Former bush administration labor secretary Elaine Chao is expected to head the transportation department. Chao is well known on capitol hill as the wife of senator majority leader Mitch Mcconnell but as his cabinet comes together one trump advocate is chiding the president-elect's continued use of Twitter. Newt Gingrich criticized him for pushing allegations of voter fraud. The president of the united States can't randomly tweet without having somebody check it out. It makes you wonder about whatever else he's doing. Reporter: Tomorrow president-elect trump heads to Indiana to begin what his team is calling a thank you tour. He'll start with a big announcement, a deal to keep a factory operated by the air conditioner company carrier in Indiana. The company had planned to move the facility and its 1400 jobs to Mexico. But, George, details of what carrier was offered in the way of incentives to keep that factory in end that have not been revealed. Governor Mike pence working on that. More with Matt dowd about that we don't know all the details but likely to save 1,000 jobs. Pretty big win for president-elect trump. It's a win. People in the midwest think nobody has advocated for them. If Donald Trump gets the win it's a big deal for him. The question as Jon says, what did he have to give away and what other companies are going to say give us something. The publicourtship of Mitt Romney and Donald Trump right now. Pretty remarkable given what Romney said during the campaign. But it's not a done deal yet. No, it's not done and I don't think anything is done with Donald Trump until it's formally announced. The reversal is stunning. The degree of difficulty on this dive for Mitt Romney is more than a 4 1/2 reverse somersault with a tuck position. It's greater than that and I would think it would make more sense for Jim Harbaugh to go to work for Urban Meyer of the Ohio state Buckeyes as an assistant coach than this move Mitt Romney is making. A reversal for both. Trump called Romney entirely unimpressive. And a loser and Romney called him a fake, a phony, a fraud and con man. What Romney did not do is apologize. The question, is that required in trump's mind? We don't know the answer to that yet president-elect on Twitter early this morning. Several different tweets including one that could be very significant saying that on December 15th he and his children will have a press conference announcing how they'll handle the business going forward. He says it will be a big press conference. He says it will be him removing himself in total from his company. Interesting, several tweets on this, one says I feel as visually important as president to in no way have a conflict of interest with nye various businesses. If he turns the company over to his children, as he has said before, Ivanka Trump is a big part of that. Ivanka Trump's husband Jared Kushner is I am told going to be going to Washington, in the west wing with president-elect. Devil in the details on this. We'll watch that press conference. The fascinating thing we're getting more information on him from Twitter than press conferences. The way he's communicating right now. Over to robin. Now to Charleston, south Carolina, where police officer
