BreakingNews @en di

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is proving very fond of the spotlight, unlike the President Trump who loves the media attention, Tillerson has already made it clear to senior officials of the State Department that it intends to keep a low profile, in sharp contrast with his predecessor John Kerry who often spoke to the press. The style of Tillerson has seen in his first commitment of great importance, the G20 in Germany, where he got to meet several foreign Ministers, in particularly had reassured Japan and South Korea about the US commitment against Korea North in the Pacifc area. The Choose of a low profile, however, causes problems to journalists, who can not read well the moves of Tillerson, but also to his colleagues, in fact, france Minister of Foregin Affairs Jean-Marc Ayrault after meeting with Secretary of State during the G20 has called “vague” his positions, especially regarding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The President of the Foreign Relations Commitee of the Senate, the Republican Bob Corker has tried to downplay the incident remembering that the presentation of the tax returns is not obligatory for the appointment, rather than the Democrats Corker is busy in trying to convince the dissidents republicans in Senate to accept the appointment of Tillerson, of which moreover does not seem absolutely convinced even the same Corker.

BreakingNews @en di

Rex Tillerson is the man chosen by Donald Trump for the office of Secretary of State. This choice, however, is unconvincing all the members of the GOP, in particular, have expressed unfavorable to the Tillerson’s appointment the senators John McCain, presidential candidate in 2008, and Marco Rubio, candidate in the last GOP primary. Both have noted that the CEO of Exxon has no diplomatic experience and has unclear relationship with Russia. Tillerson’s candidacy, however, has been appreciated by Rience Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee, in particular for its close ties to Vladimir Putin.

Trump may choose Exxon’s CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State

BreakingNews @en di

The appoint of the new Secretary of State seems to be closer. Trump met in New York Rex Tillerson, CEO of oil giant Exxon Mobil. The President-elect seems to have definitively rejected the names of Rudy Giuliani and David Petraeus, of course also the name of Tillerson doesn’t excites the leaders of the GOP, Tillerson is a great businessman, but he has no experience neither political neither diplomatic but boasts of important friendships, with Putin for example, and an enviable career that has taken him to sit face to face with some of the most powerful leaders of the world.
