Romney Confirms He Will Not Be US Secretary Of State In Facebook Post

Using a platform beloved by any conservative who wants their story to go viral, Mitt Romney confirmed he will not serve as Secretary of State.

"It was an honour to have been considered for Secretary of State of our great country. My discussions with President-elect Trump have been both enjoyable and enlightening," the 2012 Republican presidential nominee wrote. "I have very high hopes that the new administration will lead the nation to greater strength, prosperity and peace."

The comments on the post are predictably amusing. "That's very different then what you were saying before the election," one user wrote. "You are a snake in the grass. Years ago I thought you were a man of good character- but after what you did and said to Donald trump - I know that is not true," a Trump supporter remarked. "You're a good man, just wish I was reelecting you for a second term," one Romney-lover reminisced.

A loss for Romney, but a huge win for Facebook.
