A great pick for Trump’s cabinet is someone the left and RINOs detest…Right? Trump’s choice for Secretary of State must be a great pick because the left and the usual suspects in the Republican Party have already voiced their opposition to ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson. Instead of picking an insider, Trump has chosen a “world class player” who has experience dealing with leaders including Russia’s Putin. Because of the good relationship Tillerson has with Russia, the left has ginned up more hysteria and faux concern that he’s too close to the Kremlin. Check out the FOX News/Fake News blurb on this very thing:
Leading Republicans have already expressed anxieties about Tillerson, as they contend with intelligence assessments saying that Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election to help turn the tables Trump’s way. – FOX News
The RINOs will certainly join in with their concerns just like Marco Rubio did in a tweet:
“Being a “friend of Vladimir” is not an attribute I am hoping for from a #SecretaryOfState.” – Sen. Marco Rubio
Just sour grapes or a serious effort to discredit a Trump presidency?
TRUMP ANNOUNCES TILLERSON AS PICK FOR SOS:
President-elect Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he intends to nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.
Tillerson impressed Trump during the two meetings he had with him. Trump had high praise for the energy titan, calling him a “world class player”.
“He’s in charge of an oil company that’s pretty much double the size of his next nearest competitor,” Trump told host Chris Wallace. “It’s been a company that’s been unbelievably managed, and to me a great advantage is he knows many of the players and he knows them well. He does massive deals in Russia, he does massive deals for the company. Not for himself, for the company.”
Trump pointed to Tillerson’s relations with Moscow and other political hot spots as a selling point. As ExxonMobil’s chief, he maintained close ties with Russia and was awarded by Russian President Vladimir Putin with the Order of Friendship in 2013, a high honor for a foreign citizen.
