    President Donald Trump met on Friday with former national security adviser and Department of State head Condoleezza Rice, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said on Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Rice was appointed national security adviser in 2001 during the first term of President George W. Bush and served as secretary of state from 2005 to 2009.

    "POTUS [Trump] welcomed former NSA and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice back to White House this morning," Spicer stated in a Twitter message.

    In October, during the 2016 presidential campaign, Rice called on Trump to drop out of the race.
