Mitt Romney, who is a known Atlanticist and NeoCon, is being considered for Secretary of State by Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, the rest of Trump's team are completely against the induction of Romney, who had mercilessly attacked Trump during the election campaign, with the support of NeoCons opposed to Trump.

Trump is rumored to be currently leaning toward picking Romney, with the latter possibly preparing an apology speech to proclaim his change of heart toward Trump, in connection with an announcement of his appointment as early as tomorrow. This sudden turn has alarmed the rest of Trump's team as well as Trump's grassroots base, who are scrambling to weigh in with their opposition to Romney.
