NEW YORK -- Congressman Lou Barletta from Hazleton left his meeting with Donald Trump and said the two talked about his role after Trump takes office, but it's not the role some were speculating Barletta might get.
Barletta met with President-elect Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Tuesday afternoon.
Many speculated that Barletta could be offered secretary of transportation.
But Trump said on Tuesday he picked former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao for that.
Instead, Barletta said secretary of labor is the position Trump discussed with him.
"We talked about the great win in Pennsylvania, the fact that Pennsylvania threw him over the top. We talked about that, but mainly his ideas moving forward, and the role I could play in Congress, or in labor, or some other role," Barletta said.
Barletta said secretary of labor is something he's going to consider.
