They were once bitter rivals.
Monday, former Governor Rick Perry will sit down with President-Elect Donald Trump in New York to talk about what role Perry might play in the soon to take power Trump Administration.
The meeting is a far cry form the early days of the Republican Party Primary process–during which Perry was an early critic of Trump.
“As an individual who has worn the uniform of this country, I was highly offended by what Donald Trump said about John McCain” Perry told an audience about a year ago.
Trump had been critical of the Arizona Senator, bringing to light his capture during the Vietnam War.
Later, Trump noted Perry’s leaving the race for the Republican Nomination, calling the former Governor “nasty.”
“Mr. Perry–Governor Perry… he’s gone. Good luck” Trump told an audience in Iowa.
Months later, Perry is reportedly a candidate for several top posts in the new administration–including Secretaries of Agriculture, Energy, and Veteran’s Affairs.
