There has been a lot of controversy surrounding Trump’s pick for secretary of state. But then, when is anything Trump does not highly criticized and turned into a scandal by the left?
Donald Trump had many solid reasons for picking Tillerson. Kellyanne Conway talked to Fox News about the real reason Trump chose him, and it’s a good one.
According to Fox News…
Conway described the choice to nominate Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for secretary of state, as “a very Trumpian pick.”
“The president-elect told me just today that when he met Rex Tillerson, they clicked immediately,” she told Carlson. “I’m not surprised, they’re both very successful accomplished people who employ tens of thousands of individuals, and that he just felt that he was in a very special league, someone who can negotiate deals, someone who already has relationships across the globe.”
“Somebody, who frankly, has told Vladimir Putin, no,” she added.
That’s it folks. Trump wants Tillerson because he is not afraid to tell other world leaders no, while still being capable of continue to have a good relationship with them afterwards. That takes a special kind of person, and Donald Trump sees that special person in Rex Tillerson.
