2. SOUNDBITE (English) Mitt Romney, Former Republican Presidential Nominee:
"Here's what I know, Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud, his promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing members of the American public for suckers, he gets a free ride for to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat. His domestic policies would lead to recession, his foreign policies would make America and the world less safe, he has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill. I'm convinced America has greatness ahead and this is a time for choosing, God bless us to choose a nominee who will make that vision a reality."

"I backed Mitt Romney. I backed him. You can see how loyal he is. He was begging for my endorsement. I could have said, 'Mitt, drop to your knees.' He would have dropped to his knees. He was begging."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, Republican presidential candidate:
"You have these stiffs like a (2012 presidential candidate) Mitt Romney - the guy is a total stiff. Did he let us down? This guy is a loser. Did he let us down? I mean, here's a guy, goes up, he's so devastated, he forgot to campaign in the final month, he gave it to Obama, believe me, that election. I'm going to beat Hillary so badly, but let me just tell you, beating Obama four years ago was easier than beating Hillary Clinton now, believe me, and Mitt Romney choked, pure and simple, he choked like a dog and that's not going to happen."

In a gesture of reconciliation with establishment Republicans, President-elect Donald Trump plans to meet with 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who lambasted Trump as a "con man" and a "fraud" in a stinging speech in March.
Trump responded by repeatedly referring to Romney as a "loser."
The two began mending fences after Trump's victory when Romney called with congratulations.
They are to meet this weekend, a transition official says.
Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says they are still "working on" the meeting.
RNC communications director Sean Spicer wouldn't comment to the Fox News Channel on whether Trump was set to offer Romney a position in the administration now being formed.
But when asked what the pair was expected to discuss, the Republican strategist said only that "they're going to have a conversation."
