President-elect Donald Trump will meet Monday with retired U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus about a possible job as secretary of state.

Mr. Petraeus served as CIA director from 2011 to 2012 when he resigned after revelations he had an extramarital affair. He has indicated that he was open to serving in a Trump administration.

The meeting was announced Monday by transition team officials.

The interview at Trump Tower in Manhattan adds to speculation surrounding the secretary of state nomination. The other top candidates for the job, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, both have been met with criticism inside and outside the transition team.

Mr. Romney, who met Nov. 19 with Mr. Trump, is scheduled for a second meeting with the president-elect Tuesday at Trump Tower.
