President-elect Donald Trump will meet with Mitt Romney this weekend to discuss the Cabinet position of secretary of state, CNBC reports.

CNN also reported that the two will talk about governing moving forward and a possible Cabinet position for Romney, though the position was not specified.

NBC News quoted as source close to Trump who has direct knowledge of Trump's thinking as saying secretary of state is the position to be discussed on Sunday.

Romney, the GOP nominee in 2012, was one of Trump's fiercest critics throughout the primaries and presidential election season, refusing to endorse him. 

In a March speech, Romney called Trump a "con man" and a "fraud." Then in June, Romney told CNN that a Trump victory would lead to "trickle-down racism."

Despite all of that, Romney called Trump to congratulate him on his victory over Hillary Clinton. 

The former Massachusetts governor also tweeted out a note of congrats:

"Best wishes for our duly elected president."

Romney's father George was also a politician, first serving as the governor of Michigan from 1963-1969 and then as the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development from 1969-1973 under President Richard Nixon.

Nixon, as it turns out, has been in the news this week as President-elect Donald Trump works on choosing the people who will work in his cabinet — under intense scrutiny and media reports — after he won last week's election. Nixon, according to Fox News, announced all of his cabinet picks six weeks after the 1968 election.

Trump has announced two choices: senior adviser Steve Bannon and Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
