Both the New York Times and the Washington Post are reporting that Secretary of State Tillerson has weeks, maybe months left. But Trump says he will not be leaving soon.
I dunno. Is Trump just trying to stick it to the media? Or were the stories orchestrated by White House people who want Tillerson out, without knowing what Trump’s mind is on the matter?
Either way, looks like Rex can have a Merry Christmas.
The media has been speculating that I fired Rex Tillerson or that he would be leaving soon – FAKE NEWS! He’s not leaving and while we disagree on certain subjects, (I call the final shots) we work well together and America is highly respected again!https://t.co/FrqiPLFJ1E
