When Robert Johnson, the founder of Black Entertainment Television, arrived to a recent meeting with Donald Trump, the president-elect greeted him with a blunt question.The entertainment mogul, who has known Trump socially for years, offered an honest and candid response: "No," he said, drawing a smile from Trump.John Allison, the former chairman of BB&T Corp. who was invited to interview for Treasury secretary, said he was not asked to submit any personal or financial information to Trump's team ahead of the interviews.Those who are invited to meet Trump arrange their own transportation, including secretary of state candidate Mitt Romney, who was spotted waiting in a taxi line at New York's John F. Kennedy airport.While most of Trump's meetings have been held in Manhattan, Romney's first meeting with the president-elect took place at the Bedminster golf club. "We agreed that while it would be good to repeal Dodd-Frank, it would be difficult politically," Allison said.Following his meeting with Trump, Allison said he spent about 20 minutes with Steve Mnuchin, who ran the Trump campaign's finance operations. Trump ultimately picked Mnuchin for the Treasury job, the one Allison had come in to discuss.
