Battle surrounds Trump's secretary of state pick

Mitt Romney leaves after meeting with US President-elect Donald Trump at the clubhouse of Trump National Golf Club on November 19, 2016 in Bedminster, New JerseyAs families across a bitterly divided America gathered for Thanksgiving, a battle erupted Thursday in Donald Trump’s camp over his pick for secretary of state, with loyalists seeking to block the path of Mitt Romney, a fierce former critic of the billionaire. With the president-elect hunkered down at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida for the holiday weekend — from where he urged the country to unite after a “painful” campaign — his team appears split over the prospect of making Romney, the Republican presidential candidate in 2012, America’s top diplomat. Some of Trump’s staunchest supporters have united to oppose naming a man who called the real estate magnate a “fraud” and a “conman” during the campaign, when he helped lead the party establishment’s drive to sideline him.
