Earlier reports of a dispute between Trump and Tillerson have been shot down. Tillerson spoke about the matter and said he is on board with Trump’s agenda.
There have been rumors that the Secretary of State disapproves of Trump’s policies. It was even reported that Mike Pence intervened at one stage.
Reports indicate that Tillerson called Trump a “Moron”. It was said that Tillerson was unhappy with Trump after a meeting on July 20.
The question was asked if he called the President that name. He replied “I’m not going to deal with petty stuff like that.”
Rex Tillerson said he was part of the “make America great again” team. His support is fully behind the President of the U.S.A.
Fake news so called has always been an issue for the media. It is receiving more publicity now because of Trump. But fake news has been around for a long time. It doesn’t appear as if anyone is immune to it.
Trump tweeted “NBC news is #FakeNews and more dishonest than even CNN. They are a disgrace to good reporting. No wonder their news ratings are way down!”
His tweet was posted a little before Tillerson spoke to the media.
Trump himself has been the bearer of fake news. On many occasions his Press Secretary had to defend statements he made.
Tillerson has played down claims there is tension between the President and himself. It was said that they don’t agree on Trump’s approach to North Korea. This however has been denied by Tillerson.
Tillerson said “President Trump’s foreign policy goals break the mold of what people traditionally think is achievable on behalf of our country. We’re finding new ways to govern that deliver new victories.”
It doesn’t look like there will be any resignation anytime soon from Tillerson. He denied any decision to resign before or at present.
He said “I have never considered leaving this post. I am here for as long as the President feels I can be useful to achieving his objectives.”
“My commitment to the success of our President and our country is as strong as it was the day I accepted his offer to serve as Secretary of State, “said Tillerson.
The Secretary of State has made his allegiance certain. This is good news for the President who has his hands full.
He is currently dealing with many issues that include his own family. Then there are the natural disasters and the shootings.
These are just a few of what could seem like insurmountable challenges. The last thing the President needs is his comrades resigning.
One thing is certain at this time. Trump still has a strong backing in his corner.
Mike Pence, Rex Tillerson and John Kelly still have his back. He also has the support of many Americans.
