The truth of why Tillerson was let go...Facts only
Iran.

Trump doesn't like the Iran deal and Tillerson was publicly promoting a message that was not what Trump wanted.

That is the jest of it.

In January Rex Tillerson told reporters the US was trying to stay in the Iranian deal.

President Trump:

quote:

Rex and I have been talking about this for a long time. We got along quite well but we disagreed on things. When you look at the Iran deal. I think it’s terrible. I guess he thought it was OK. I wanted to either break it or do something and he felt a little bit differently.





That's why he is gone. He is entitled to his opinion, he is NOT entitled to promote that policy in public or with nations.

Tillerson criticized Russia for killing people in the UK, fired the next day. Not difficult.

Rex was spending too much time making dog heads.

Something about a razor

quote:

Tillerson: Russia obviously poisoned the guy. Trump: You're fired. Press: You fired him for saying that? Trump: No, I fired him on Friday. Tillerson aide: He wasn't fired on Friday, it came as a complete surprise. Trump: You're fired too.

Tillerson was CEO of Exxon-Mobile for so long that he forgot two rules of corporate life:

Rule #1: The boss is always right.

Rule #2: Whenever you think the boss is wrong don't publicly say so and then refer to Rule #1.

I dunno. One would think Trump talked to Tillerson about the Iran deal before he hired him.

Which probably why Tillerson was hired to take care of NK/China first and then move to someone who would take care of Iran.

So the decision to fire him wasn’t made before Tillerson made that statement?

Then explain why he was told to cut his trip short on Friday and return to DC.

Dumbfrick Libs.

Four different threads (concerning Tillerson’s dismissal) started by you this morning. Not too mention numerous others started by others. Are you an attention whore that likes to see her name on this message board?
