President-elect Donald Trump and Mitt Romney stroll out right after a meeting at the Trump Countrywide Golf Club Bedminster clubhouse at Trump National Golfing Club Bedminster in Bedminster Township, N.J. on Saturday, Nov. 19, 2016.

A top rated White Household aide says President Donald Trump spoke late Tuesday with 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Kellyanne Conway reported on CNN Wednesday that the two had a “great discussion.”

It was not clear if they reviewed the Utah Senate race. Romney has been contemplating a 2018 run in Utah if Sen. Orrin Hatch retires. Trump has inspired Hatch, 83, to look for one more time period.

Conway would not say if Trump would assist Romney in a potential Senate bid.

Romney fiercely criticized Trump throughout the presidential campaign.

Trump’s former main strategist Steve Bannon assailed Romney all through a Tuesday rally for Alabama Senate prospect Roy Moore. Bannon attacked Romney as a “draft dodger.” Romney received a draft deferment for his missionary perform in France.
