Mitt Romney Posts Pic With Grandkids Amidst Talk of Trump Team Infighting

A top Donald Trump adviser warned Sunday that the president-elect's supporters would feel "betrayed" if he tapped former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as secretary of state, a move that would put a once-fierce Trump critic in a powerful Cabinet post.

In the middle of a reported power struggle within the transition team for President-elect Donald Trump, former Governor Mitt Romney is spending time with his grandchildren on a San Diego beach.

The La Jolla resident posted the image Sunday along with the message, "No greater joy than making discoveries together with grandchildren."

Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, vigorously challenged Trump's fitness for the presidency, including his foreign policy credentials.

The same day Romney posted the image of his family walk near Windandsea Beach,  a top Donald Trump adviser warned that the president-elect's supporters would feel "betrayed" over his selection as secretary of state.

Trump's decision on his secretary of state did not appear to be imminent. And the wrangling over Romney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has raised the possibility that Trump may go with a third option. His transition team has also considered Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton for the job.

People with knowledge of the transition process say Trump is also considering retired Marine Gen. John Kelly for the post. Kelly met with the president-elect last week.
