At the risk of "offending" the millions of people who supported and fought for him, Donald Trump should drop Mitt Romney from consideration for Secretary of State, best-selling author and radio host Wayne Allyn Root wrote for Townhall.

He added, there are two darkhorse names the President-elect should consider for his administration: Joe Lieberman and Ted Cruz.

Root, an early supporter of Trump's, makes the case for Cruz for the Supreme Court vacancy, and offers up 5 reasons why Lieberman would be a solid choice for Secretary of State:

  • Expand the GOP tent looking ahead to 2020.
  • Expand the tent with Jewish voters.
  • Lieberman is extremely qualified.
  • Lieberman is a conservative when it comes to foreign policy.
  • He's a bi-partisan leader.

As for Cruz, Root says Trump's primary foe is a conservative constitutionalist, but writes he should go with Cruz for a far more visceral reason.

"Visualize the hatred liberals have for you Donald. This is your chance to return the favor," Root wrote. "The ultra-left will never like or respect you. Never. Here is how to pay them back. They despise and fear a true principled conservative like Ted Cruz. Stick the knife in…and twist it. Make your enemies sick to their stomachs."
