Allen West meets with Donald Trump
We no not have any details at this time but it is being reported that Allen West met with Donald Trump and his foreign policy team earlier today.
Here is (not much) more:
Colonel Allen West met with President-elect Donald Trump’s foreign policy team on Monday, including Vice President-elect Mike Pence, Mike Flynn and KT McFarland.
He may not be joining the upcoming administration, though.
After the meeting, West told reporters that he discussed national security issues with the president-elect, but said he was not offered a position.
“I mean they know my reputation very well,” he said. “I’m just a simple soldier and I’m the third of four generations that served this country going back to my father in World War II, and we still have a relative of ours that is continuing to serve in the Army now.”
It was reported over the weekend that Donald Trump was expanding his Secretary of State list and it sounds like thankfully Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani are no longer in the running so is it possible that Allen West is now being considered for the position?
This is pure speculation on my part, we will have to wait and see if anything comes from this meeting.
