Trump Meets Petraeus Amid Secretary of State Fight

Updated on

President-elect Donald Trump met with retired General David Petraeus Monday, as a senior official with the transition said the former CIA director is being considered for secretary of state amid open infighting among Trump’s advisers about who to pick for the post.

“Just met with General Petraeus -- was very impressed!” Trump said in a Twitter post after their session at Trump Tower in Manhattan.
