ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Donald Trump met with Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee Tuesday at Trump Tower as the president-elect continues to meet with candidates that could serve as part of his foreign policy team. "I think he will make the decision when he is comfortable," Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said. "The Secretary of State's role is so important to a President, he needs to choose someone that he is very comfortable with, that he knows there is going to be no daylight between him and them," he said. Trump saw retired General David Petraeus, a potential candidate for the State Department or the Pentagon, on Monday. On Tuesday he is expected to also meet with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a transition official said. He will have dinner with Mitt Romney. Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Corker and Giuliani are all in the running for secretary of state. Romney was a sharp critic of Trump during the presidential race.
