Roger Stone, a longtime adviser to Donald Trump, says the president-elecrt interviewed Mitt Romney for the secretary of State position just to "torture him" for his former criticism.
In an appearance on InfoWars Sunday, Stone said Trump had been toying with Romney.
"Donald Trump was interviewing Mitt Romney for Secretary of State in order to torture him," Stone said on InfoWars. "To toy with him. And given the history, that's completely understandable. Mitt Romney crossed a line. He didn't just oppose Trump, which is his democratic right, he called him a phony and a fraud. And a con man. And that's not the kind of man you want as Secretary of State."
Stone, a longtime political operative who has Richard Nixon's face tattooed on his back, left Trump's campaign last year and does not have a position on the transition. Stone plans to write a book on Trump's rise to the White House.
