President-elect Donald Trump met with another possible candidate for secretary of state Monday, and one who is likely to raise some tough questions from the U.S. Senate -- former CIA chief and retired general David Petraeus.

Before leading the CIA, Petraeus was top U.S. commander in Iraq and led NATO forces in Afghanistan.

But he was forced to resign from the CIA in disgrace in 2012 after leaking classified information to his biographer, with whom he was having an affair.

Despite Petraeus' past, Trump tweeted that he was "very impressed" with the retired general.

Republican officials say Trump has also decided on another cabinet appointment - the secretary of health and human services. His choice is said to be Georgia Representative Tom Price, who has been a leading critic of President Barack Obama's health care law, commonly known as Obamacare.

Trump has pledged to repeal Obamacare, although he has indicated that there are certain parts of the program he believes should be retained.

In addition to Petraeus, Trump is reported to be considering several other politicians and diplomats for the secretary of state post. They include former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, Republican Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Bob Corker, and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.
