Mike Huckabee said Saturday that Mitt Romney should have apologized to President-elect Donald Trump in their meeting in New Jersey and, that if Trump were to offer the former Massachusetts governor a Cabinet post, it "would be an insult to the voters."

"I don't see any way in the world that Mitt Romney would have a cabinet position in the Donald Trump administration," the former Arkansas governor told Uma Pemmaraju on Fox News.

He was interviewed as Trump and Romney met at the president-elect's golf resort in Bedminster, N.J.

"It would really not so much be an insult to Donald Trump," he said. "It would be an insult to the supporters of Donald Trump, who went out there and faithfully stood behind Donald Trump, to give a guy a job who basically said all those supporters were following a con man.

"That would be an insult to the voters."

Reports began circulating Thursday that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, would meet with Trump on Saturday — primarily to discuss the possibility of serving as secretary of state.

In March, the former governor ripped Trump as a "con man" and a "fraud."

Three months later, Romney told CNN in an interview that a Trump victory would lead to "trickle-down racism."

Their session on Saturday lasted about an hour.

"We had a far-reaching conversation with regards to the various theaters in the world where there are interests of the United States of real significance," Romney told reporters after leaving the meeting. "We discussed those areas — and exchanged our views on those topics."

He called it a "very thorough and in-depth discussion in the time we had.

"I appreciate the chance to speak with the president-elect — and look forward to the coming administration."

Romney walked away as reporters shouted questions.

On Friday, Huckabee told reporters in the lobby of Trump Tower in Manhattan that he and the president-elect had discussed a Cabinet post, but that it was not "the right fit."
