Retired Gen. David Petraeus says he had a “very good conversation” with President-elect Donald Trump.
The former CIA director met with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Monday afternoon. He says the two spoke for about an hour and says Trump “showed a great grasp of a variety of the challenges that are out there.”
Petraeus, who could be in line for a Cabinet nomination, says the two will “see where it goes from here.” He did not respond to questions about whether Trump had offered him a job in the new administration.
Trump tweeted that he was “very impressed” with Petraeus following their meeting.
Petraeus was President Barack Obama’s CIA director in 2011-12 before resigning amid the disclosure that he had an inappropriate relasiinship with his biographer and shared highly classified information with her.
