Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry is meeting Monday morning with President-elect Donald Trump. 

Perry arrived at Trump Tower in New York City at 11:07 a.m., according to a pool report. He did not respond to requests for comment before entering an elevator. 

Trump aide Kellyanne Conaway told Fox News Monday that Perry is under consideration to lead the Departments of Defense and Energy. It is unclear how seriously Perry is under consideration for these posts. 

Perry, an Air Force veteran, was perhaps the most viscerally critical opponent of Trump’s over the course of the presidential campaign, at one point calling the real estate mogul a “cancer on conservatism.” But Perry was also at the vanguard of establishment consolidation around Trump, once it was clear he was the party’s nominee. 

Perry attended the Republican National Convention this summer and campaigned for Trump in the general election campaign.
