Trump Picks Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson As Secretary Of State



Zero Hedge: “In a move that is certain to infuriate those who see Trump as nothing more than a puppet of the Kremlin, moments ago NBC reported that Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil and late entrant into the SecState race after his first meeting with the president elect this past Tuesday at the Trump Tower, has been picked by Trump to serve as his next Secretary of State.

Opinion: The climate change crowd will be screaming Haliburton for the next 4 years. If you remember, Vice President Cheney used to be the company’s CEO.

Nancy Pelosi’s infamous “what do you expect from two oil men in the White House” will no doubt be dragged up ad nauseam.

Rex Tillerson is a welcome relief after eight years of global warming hysteria, and the icing on the cake, John Bolton, as deputy secretary of state for day-to-day management, works for me.
