Early on during the primary campaign, Romney led opposition to Trump within the Republican Party and warned against his selection as the nominee. He continued even after it was clear that Trump had secured the nomination. In a June interview on CNN, Romney said Trump would fundamentally change the character of the U.S.

Trump's election would mean, "Trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny, all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America," Romney said at the time. Trump, in turn, repeatedly needled Romney for losing to Obama in 2012, calling him a loser and saying he "choked like a dog" in the campaign.

Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway didn't elaborate on plans for the meeting. "Happy to have his support," said told reporters at Trump Tower.

We suspect this is mostly driven by desperation, but team Trump will spin it as "diplomacy".
