BEDMINSTER, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — President-elect Donald Trump is spending the weekend working to fill his Cabinet.
Trump traveled to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Friday night.
He sent a tweet, saying “Will be working all weekend in choosing the great men and women who will be helping to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Vice President-elect Mike Pence is leading the transition team.
“We’ve got a great number of men and women with great qualifications to come forward and serve this new administration,” Pence said.
On Saturday, Trump met with Mitt Romney.
The two have had a contentious relationship throughout the campaign. Romney called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud.”
“His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” he said.
And the president-elect called Romney “disloyal,” an “elitist” and “stone-cold loser.”
After meeting for an hour and 15 minutes, Trump shouted to reporters, “It went great!”
Romney did not comment directly on rumors that he is being considered for the Secretary of State role, but he did say he’s looking forward to the incoming administration, 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern reported.
“Far reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters of the wold where there are interests of the United States of real significance,” he said.
Trump also met with Democrat Michelle Ried, the former chancellor of D.C. public schools, who is being considered for the Education Secretary spot, and retired general James Mattis, who is up for defense chief. He also met with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
On Friday, the president-elect picked Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for Attorney General and Congressman Mike Pompeo of Kansas, a member of the intelligence committee, to head the CIA. Both must be confirmed by the incoming Republican-led Senate.
Democrats admit, they likely won’t have the votes to block the nominees.
“If Republicans stick together, the president will be essentially able to put whoever he wants in these positions,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said.
Retired Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn tweeted Friday that he accepted the job of National Security Advisor.
Trump is expected to meet with Rudy Giuliani, who is also in the running for Secretary of State.
CBS News has learned the next batch of announcements could come as early as Monday.
