Donald Trump to Meet with Former Rivals Carly Fiorina, Rick Santorum

President-elect Donald Trump will meet with two former GOP Primary rivals, Carly Fiorina and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, on Monday in New York City at Trump Tower, according to his transition team.

Fiorina, who briefly ran as Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) running mate during the Primary, has been a Trump critic, suggesting weeks before the election that he should “step aside” and allow his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, to head the Republican ticket after the Washington Post published audio of Trump making lewd remarks about women with Billy Bush.

“Donald Trump does not represent me or my party. I understand the responsibility of Republicans to support their nominee. Our nominee has weighty responsibilities, as well. Donald Trump has manifestly failed in these responsibilities,” Fiorina posted on Facebook at the time.

However, after Trump won the election, Fiorina took to social media to congratulate him.

“Congratulations to President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence. The American people have spoken. Time for real change that unites us and carries our nation forward,” she wrote.

Trump also blasted Fiorina during the Primary.

“Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?” Trump stated during an interview with Rolling Stone magazine. “I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

The President-elect will also meet with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Rep. Raul Labrador (R-ID) on Monday. Trump’s meeting with Labrador comes shortly after his previously scheduled meeting with the Idaho Congressman on Thursday.
