Donald Trump Selects Rex Tillerson For Secretary of State

President-elect of the United States of America, Donald Trump has declared CEO of ExxonMobil, Rex Tillerson as the Secretary of State, dismissing concerns about the businessman’s close ties to Russia.

 U.S president-elect said Rex Tillerson’s knowledge and experience of geopolitics made him the best candidate for the position.

Trump said: “His tenacity, broad experience and deep understanding of geopolitics make him an excellent choice for Secretary of State.”

Meanwhile, leading Republicans who already expressed anxiety about Tillerson, said that the selection could set Trump up for a potential fight with Congress over confirming Tillerson who has connections with Russian President, Vladimir Putin.
