This gave approach to Tillerson realizing he wanted to convey visible aids like charts or pictures. “If I may put a photograph or an image in entrance of him or a map or a chunk of paper that had two large bullet factors on it, he would deal with that, and I may construct on that.” We knew this however man, what a bummer. Requested how Trump made knowledgeable selections if it was so tough to make him knowledgeable, Tillerson mentioned he didn’t assume Trump made many “knowledgeable selections.”

One other concern Tillerson mentioned he confronted was that the numerous handlers (and presumably Fox Information) would get to the president earlier than Tillerson met with him, filling him with fact-free opinions and data.

Requested about Trump’s friendliness in the direction of authoritarian leaders and antagonism in the direction of allies, Tillerson mentioned he couldn’t inform you what was occurring in Trump’s thoughts. However, as Tillerson went on to elucidate, nothing ever panned out. We’re in no higher place with Russia or with North Korea, our points with China have solely turn into exacerbated, and our relationship with Turkey is much more messy.
