Trump's top aides said they were "baffled" by Conway's comments and suggested that it feeds into a growing concern inside the campaign that "instead of driving Donald Trump's message, she's pushing her own agenda", she said and added that one campaign aide called Conway's words "dangerous". But Romney is still in the running in order to appease the standard conservative base that Trump didn't quite satisfy during election season.
There have even been rumblings that if Romney wants the job, then Trump has asked him to publicly apologize for the things he said about Trump during the Republican primary season.
