Some of Trump's most prominent allies, including his campaign manager, have taken the unprecedented step of using national television interviews to bash Romney. And nearly a dozen Trump backers who attended the Ohio victory lap vehemently denounced Romney as a choice to be the nation's top diplomat.Then there's the Russia twist: Russian politicians are concerned about reports that Trump would even consider Romney as the U.S. top diplomat because of Romney's harsh stance on Russia. Trump has said he would like to improve U.S.-Russian relations.Rallygoer Josh Kanowitz said he was willing to give Trump the benefit of the doubt for some of his establishment-friendly picks – including former Goldman Sachs partner Steve Mnuchin for secretary of the Treasury – but he visibly recoiled at the suggestion that Romney would be a team-of-rivals-style selection from Trump."People feel betrayed to think that Gov. Romney, who went out of his way to question the character and the intellect and the integrity of Donald Trump, now our president-elect, would be given the most significant Cabinet post of all," said Kellyanne Conway, a senior Trump aide. She said Romney was "nothing but awful" to Trump for a year.
