BEDMINSTER, N.J. - President-elect Donald Trump and 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney set aside their long-simmering rivalry on Saturday and sat down for talks that could include whether Romney should serve as Trump's secretary of state.

"Mr. President-elect, how are you sir?" Romney said in greeting Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence on his arrival at Trump's golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Romney was the first in a long list of people Trump was meeting on Saturday and Sunday as he seeks to fill out his Cabinet and seek advice ahead of his Jan. 20 move to the White House.
