Tillerson As Sec of State

Reader comment on item: What Rex Tillerson Thinks

Submitted by Martin Schaffel (United States), Jan 7, 2017 at 15:37

Mr. Trump's nomination of Mr. Tillerson emphasizes the PE's importance of being a deal maker rather than having experience for the cabinet position. A tough, internationally experienced and pro American person is needed in this day and age to be sec of state that can not only enforce the administration's policies but to clean house at the state department of those that continue to support anti American politics.

Being a deal maker is fine, but knowing what kind of a deal to make that will benefit America's interest doesn't appear to be one of Mr. Tillerson's attributes.
