President-elect Donald Trump met Monday with ex-CIA Director David Petraeus, who is a leading candidate for secretary of state, despite leaking secrets to a paramour during an extramarital affair.
But Trump sounded forgiving after spending an hour with the retired four-star Army general at Trump Tower.
“Just met with General Petraeus — was very impressed!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
And Petraeus had warm words in return as he left the meeting.
“I was with him for about an hour. He basically walked us around the
world,” said Petraeus, who earned acclaim for leading troop surges in
Iraq and Afghanistan. “Showed a great grasp of a variety of the
challenges that are out there and some of the opportunities as well.
Very good conversation and we’ll see where it goes from here,”
