Donald Trump to Meet with Former Rivals Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum
Breitbart ^ | December 9, 2016 | Alex Swoyer

Posted on 12/09/2016 10:37:33 AM PST by COUNTrecount

President-elect Donald Trump will meet with two former GOP Primary rivals, Carly Fiorina and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, on Monday in New York City at Trump Tower, according to his transition team.

Fiorina, who briefly ran as Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) running mate during the Primary, has been a Trump critic, suggesting weeks before the election that he should “step aside” and allow his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, to head the Republican ticket after the Washington Post published audio of Trump making lewd remarks about women with Billy Bush.

“Donald Trump does not represent me or my party. I understand the responsibility of Republicans to support their nominee. Our nominee has weighty responsibilities, as well. Donald Trump has manifestly failed in these responsibilities,” Fiorina posted on Facebook at the time.

However, after Trump won the election, Fiorina took to social media to congratulate him.

“Congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence. The American people have spoken. Time for real change that unites us and carries our nation forward,” she wrote.

This is ultimate Trump...

Working with people is "The Art of the Deal" from what I can see of him.

So, what cabinet position would benefit from iSnarly’s snark, underhandedness and backstabbing while pleading entitlement? She’s good at shutting things down.

Just walk up and grab his crotch, Carly.

He likes that kind of thing.

I don’t mind him meeting with Santorum, even though he wasn’t really on-board. Carly should be handed a scrub brush and told to clean the toilets.

People support things they have some investment in. Just a 1/2 hour meeting and politely listening to them makes these former rivals and potential troublemakers somewhat invested.

Very telling!

I worked on the Santorum campaign in PA...the man is real...

The problem we had with him, he is to nice, can't get him to get ‘fire in the belly’ unless something that he just can't stand will set him off...

I could think of a lot of place in Trumps Administration for Santorum...he's that nice, a true family man, a Christian, and even if he didn't support Trump publicly, I'll be secretly he supported him, but Trump's ‘out there’ isn't Santorum’s style...

Agree completely... just checking boxes. He needs to move on, as I’m sure the Enemedia will begin a “he’s too indecisive, he’s unsure of himself” or some other lame-assed derogatory meme to fill the Demonic Party propoganda shows...
