President-elect Donald Trump plans to meet with Mitt Romney, who was one of the strongest voices against his campaign.

The 2012 Republican presidential nominee was very vocal during the campaign season, opposing Trump as a candidate for president. A senior Republican source now tells CNN Romney and Trump will have a meeting this weekend to talk about “governing moving forward.”

There’s word that the conversation could include a possible role for the former Massachusetts governor in Trump’s administration.

Trump endorsed Romney in 2012, but referred to him as a “stone cold loser” and a “failed presidential candidate” who “choked” while campaigning for president this year.

Romney went public with his thoughts about Trump, calling the real estate mogul a “phony” and a “fraud.”
