Tillerson In First Public Appearance Says Trump 'Undisciplined,' 'Doesn't Read'

Rex Tillerson

President, I understand what you want to do. "And if that's what you want to do, there's nothing wrong with that.' I told him, 'I'm ready to go up there and fight the fight, if that's what you want to do'".

It's this back-and-forth that Tillerson thinks cost him his job.

Trump says he only hires the best, but that didn't stop him from attacking his former top diplomat Friday, implying he wasn't qualified to do the job.

The president tweeted praise for his current secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, while directing a torrent of abuse toward his predecessor. He was lazy as hell. "It violates a treaty.' You know, he got really frustrated".

Tillerson, 66, was sacked from the White House in March after rumors of a rift between him and Trump had been circulating for some time. At the time, Trump described Tillerson as "a world class player" who made "massive deals" in countries including Russian Federation.

To be clear, the bit about doing things in unlawful ways refers not to criminal schemes but to Trump sometimes not understanding what existing law did and didn't allow him to do in setting policy unilaterally as president. "Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State".

The sequel nature of New Dawn is now confirmed, but, Ubisoft clarifies, it's not an official Far Cry 6 release. Both Guns and Fangs for Hire return, but they're all new due to the whole end-of-the-world thing.

"When the president would say, 'Here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it, ' I'd have to say to him, 'Mr".

The tensions grew palpable after media reported that Mr Tillerson had called the president an expletive-laced moron - and the secretary had to make a public appearance to emphasise his support for the president (without explicitly denying the reports). He did not repeat that assessment at the Houston event but his remarks were stark.

However, Tillerson led a demoralized State Department that saw its role vastly diminished, with several high-profile posts unoccupied and many allies questioning the efficacy of dealing with a diplomat they suspected never had Trump's ear. It troubles me that the American people seem to want to know so little about issues that they are satisfied with 128 characters.

"I don't want that to come across as a criticism of him", he added.

"If our leaders seek to hide the truth or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom", he said at the time. Thank you to Rex Tillerson for his service!
