David Lane, who led a national effort to get evangelical voters to the polls and ministers to run for office, said Trump has only “one chance” to craft a cabinet and he should look beyond Romney, who has been forced to eat crow as he campaigns for the State position.
“President-elect Trump gets one chance to fill the cabinet with individuals who share his vision and values, and will be loyal team players. One chance. Appointing a self-motivated adversary to a top cabinet seat will demoralize the millions of grassroots, precinct-level conservative supporters who delivered Trump the presidency on November 8th,” said David Lane, of the American Renewal Project.
A key issue for the critics is whether Romney, who dined with Trump and his chief of staff Reince Priebus Tuesday night in New York City, can be trusted to promote his president — or himself.
“The Bible speaks to to the principle of equal yoking. In a position as key as secretary of State, it’s critical to have someone who can wholeheartedly advocate for the administration positions and not seek to undermine them overseas,” said Rich Bott, president of his Bott Radio Network.
“Confidence in an unfaithful man in time of trouble is like a broken tooth, and a foot out of joint,” he said in an email quoting Proverbs.
Lane compared Romney to former President George H.W. Bush, who he said squandered the Reagan legacy because he wasn’t a Reagan conservative.
