Donald Trump has fired US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replaced him with CIA director Mike Pompeo.
The United States will respond by September 1 to Russia’s attempt to force a major reduction in American diplomatic staff, Rex Tillerson has said.
Former chief executive of ExxonMobil Rex Tillerson has received backing from two senators for his confirmation as the new US Secretary of State.
Russia poses a danger to the U.S. and must be held accountable for its actions, Rex Tillerson, President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of state and the former CEO of Exxon Mobil Corp., will tell senators at his confirmation hearing.
Rex Tillerson, former Exxon Mobil Corp. chief executive and President-elect Donald Trump’s pick for U.S. secretary of state, will relinquish control of about $240 million in company shares if confirmed as he severs ties to comply with conflict-of-interest requirements.
Even before Donald Trump tapped him to be the top U.S. diplomat, Rex Tillerson already had his own State Department.
The man poised to replace Rex Tillerson as the leader of America’s most influential energy giant helped transform Exxon Mobil Corp.’s refining business from a poor cousin of oil production to the primary profit generator.
ExxonMobil’s chief executive is being considered for a role in the President-elects government.
