Kellyanne Conway weighed in on Twitter about Mitt Romney on Thursday, and she didn't have a lot to say in favor of the would-be secretary of state.

Conway, who served as Donald Trump's campaign manager and remains a close adviser to the president-elect, said she is getting a "deluge of social media" and private communications about Romney, whose name has been floated to head the State Department under a Trump Administration but whose loyalty has been called into question by Mike Huckabee, Newt Gingrich and others.

Conway then immediately posted a checklist for the three attributes that she believes make a good secretary of state, one of which was that they should be "loyal."

Romney was fiercely critical of Trump during the election campaign, but some market-watchers have suggested that stocks could get a pop if he were named to Trump's cabinet.
