President-elect Donald Trump's top adviser Sunday questioned the loyalty of Mitt Romney should he be selected secretary of state.

In an interview with CNN's "State of the Union," Kellyanne Conway – who has voiced previous criticism of Romney as a candidate for the nation's top diplomat – declared, "We don't even know if Mitt Romney voted for Donald Trump."

"I'm all for party unity, but I'm not sure we have to pay for that with the secretary of state position," she said.

"What Donald Trump decides, Kellyanne Conway and everybody else will respect," she added. "It's just the backlash from the grassroots. I'm hearing from people saying 'my parents died penniless, but I gave $216 to Donald Trump's campaign, and I would feel betrayed.'

"You'll hear people saying 'I thought we got rid of this type.' . . . So, I think there are concerns that those of us who are loyal have, and you want a secretary of state who is loyal to the president and the president's vision of the world."

She also took a swipe at Romney's qualifications for the post.

"Gov. Romney, in the last four years, has he been around the globe doing something on behalf of the United States of which we're unaware?" she asked. "Did he go and intervene in Syria where they are having a massive humanitarian crisis? Has he been helpful to [Israel Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu?"
