    Report: Mitt Romney Fired; Trump Chooses Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of St

    Report: Mitt Romney Fired; Trump Chooses Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State



    Charlie Spiering, December 10, 2016


    President-elect Donald Trump will nominate Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, according to two sources close to the transition process speaking to NBC’s Andrea Mitchell. The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to the report.



    The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that Tillerson was leading the field after former Mayor Rudy Giuliani took his name out of the running for the job. New York Timesreporter Maggie Haberman reported that Tillerson was expected to meet with Trump today.




    Tillerson is a surprising choice, particularly for establishment political forces who urged Trump to select Mitt Romney for the job. Romney signaled interest in the position, appearing publicly to recant his opposition to the president-elect’s victory.


    It also shows that Trump will start fresh with his diplomatic team, rather than selecting a life-long politician. Tillerson has spent his life in the private sector, working with Exxon-Mobil and has business relationships around the world.

    Rex Tillerson of ExxonMobil Expected to Be Named Trump's Secretary of State: Sources


    Andrea Mitchell December 10, 2016


    Donald Trump is expected to nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, two sources close to the transition process told NBC News on Saturday.


    The 64-year-old veteran oil executive has no government or diplomatic experience, although he has ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The pick would put to rest weeks-long speculation of who would earn the post as the U.S.'s top diplomat, and would place Tillerson fourth in line to the presidency.


    He will also be paired with former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton as his deputy secretary of state, one of the sources added, with Bolton handling day-to-day management of the department.




    The sources cautioned that nothing is final until the president-elect officially announces it, which could happen as early as next week.


    Tillerson, who was once dubbed "T.Rex" by Sarah Palin, met Saturday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City, the president-elect's spokesperson confirmed.


    In a pre-taped interview set to air Sunday on Fox News, Trump discussed why a businessman such as Tillerson would be a good fit as America's chief diplomat.


    "Well, in his case, he's much more than a business executive, I mean he's a world-class player," Trump said, acknowledging Tillerson's relationship with Russia through his business dealings.


    "To me, a great advantage is he knows many of the players, and he knows them well," Trump added. "He does massive deals in Russia. He does massive deals for the company — not for himself, for the company."


    Trump spokesman Jason Miller said no official announcement on the secretary of state pick is expected until "next week at the earliest."




    Tillerson, of Wichita Falls, Texas, has already notified his corporate board about taking on the new role, sources told NBC News. He is set to retire from ExxonMobil next year since the company has a mandatory retirement age of 65, Reuters reported.


    He has never previously worked in government, but reportedly holds conservative political views.


    Tillerson has made tens of thousands of dollars worth of political donations over the past two decades to Republican groups and candidates, including to President George W. Bush and former Texas Gov. Jeb Bush, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a nonpartisan research group.


    The Wall Street Journal reported that Tillerson backed Jeb Bush during the GOP presidential primary and did not donate to Trump's campaign.


    Little is known about where he stands on foreign policy, and as secretary of state, he would have to hit the ground running on major issues. Among them: handling the nuclear agreement with Iran that the Obama administration made in 2015; the sanctions imposed on Russia; disputes with China and North Korea; the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Syria; and rebuilding Afghanistan and Iraq.




    While he has spent his entire career in the energy sector, Tillerson does have experience dealing with foreign governments since ExxonMobil operates in more than 50 countries.


    He already has links to Putin as well, after representing the company's interests in Russia during the Boris Yeltsin administration.


    In 2013, the Kremlin bestowed the country's Order of Friendship honor on Tillerson.

    At an ExxonMobil shareholders' meeting in May 2014, Tillerson touched on his disapproval of sanctions.


    "We do not support sanctions, generally, because we don't find them to be effective unless they are very well implemented comprehensively and that's a very hard thing to do," he said, adding, "We always encourage the people who are making those decisions to consider the very broad collateral damage of who are they really harming with sanctions."


    One of ExxonMobil's and Russia's biggest deals fell victim to the sanctions imposed by the Obama administration in reaction to Russia invading Crimea in 2014. That deal to drill in the offshore Arctic Kara Sea oil field would have reportedly been worth $500 billion.




    But not every Republican has championed Tillerson.


    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told NBC News on Saturday he has concerns over Tillerson's ties with Russia and that it would be the subject of any Senate confirmation hearing.


    The news of the Tillerson pick comes less than a day after reports that theCIA concluded that Russian hackers did intervene in the U.S. presidential election to help Trump win over rival Hillary Clinton.


    In her book, "Going Rogue: An American Life," Palin went after him for how ExxonMobil handled the media attention and dialogue between the Alaskan government and the company over a proposed oil pipeline in her state.


    "We knew we were headed in the right direction when the threats from some oil industry players began — everything from nasty emails to multimillion-dollar ad campaigns. Though none of the Big Three oil companies wanted to move away from their relationships with the previous administration, ExxonMobil seemed particularly hostile," the former Alaska governor wrote.


    Tillerson's role and financial stake in ExxonMobil — the fifth-largest publicly traded company in the world with a $369 billion market cap — could open up cases of conflict of interest. His ExxonMobil shares are reportedly worth about $151 million.


    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney was on the short list and among the leading names of potential candidates for the post, and despite clashing with Trump on the campaign trail — even trading bitter barbs with one another — the pair seemed to reconcile.






    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani also was reportedly in the running, although he said Friday he had taken his name out of consideration.


    Bolton, 68, had been floated as a possible secretary of state candidate as well. He was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from August 2005 to December 2006 under George W. Bush.


    While he is a self-described advocate of the Ronald Reagan foreign policy idea of "peace through strength," his hawkish stances have not been without controversy, and he was a vocal proponent of the war in Iraq.


    "We are confident that Saddam Hussein has hidden weapons of mass destruction and production facilities in Iraq," Bolton had said in 2002 while serving as George W. Bush's undersecretary of state for Arms Control and International Security.


    He continued to defend his position even after it was discovered that Iraq harbored no weapons of mass destruction.

    Trump, Rudy and Rex Tillerson and maybe others are together at the Army-Navy Game that's on right now. Army is ahead 14-0. Navy has beaten Army the last 14 years. Maybe today will be Army's Day. That would be nice. Navy's QB was injured last week and Navy is playing with a 4th string QB. We'll see. It's half-time right now.

    Rex Tillerson leading candidate for secretary of state

    By Jim Acosta, Eugene Scott and John King, CNN
    Updated 5:03 PM ET, Sat December 10, 2016

    Story highlights


    • Donald Trump is supposedly intrigued by the oil man's view of the world
    • The final announcement is expected to be made in the middle of next week



    Washington (CNN)ExxonMobil Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson is the leading candidate for Secretary of State in a Donald Trump administration, multiple sources familiar with the transition process tell CNN on Saturday.

    The final announcement is expected to be made in the middle of next week, according to a source close to the campaign. A source also said Mitt Romney is still in the running, at the urging of Reince Priebus, who will be Trump's chief of staff.

    Tillerson, who met with Trump in New York Saturday, is considered one of the faces of Big Oil globally.


    Tillerson has told the President-elect he would be honored to have the job of secretary of state and left Saturday's meeting believing he will be the pick, according to two sources familiar with his thinking.


    One said Tillerson was told the President-elect will formalize his choice next week -- as in extend an official offer.


    Both sources shared information on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss the issue for the record. Trump's spokesman Jason Miller tweeted Saturday that there would be "no announcements on Secretary of State until next week at the earliest."


    Tillerson was originally considered a long shot to be America's top diplomat, but Trump is reportedly intrigued by the oil man's view of the world.


    "He is much more than a business executive. He is a world class player. He is in charge of, I guess, the largest company in the world," Trump told Fox News' Chris Wallace in an interview airing Sunday. "And to me, a great advantage is that he knows many of the players. And he knows them well."


    "He does massive deals in Russia. He does massive deals -- for the company, not for himself, for the company," the real estate mogul added.


    As head of the world's most valuable oil company, Tillerson could be a controversial pick due to concerns about climate change and his ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.


    Sen. John McCain told CNN on Saturday that he had concerns about Tillerson's relationship to Russia and wants to hear his answers to such during his would-be hearing before making up his mind.


    "What about all the other things -- right now, the targeting of hospitals by Russian aircraft with precision weapons in Syria, in Aleppo?" the Arizona Republican asked ahead of the Army-Navy football game. "Those are the kind of questions that we need to ask about the relationship with Vladimir Putin."


    In 2011, Exxon signed a deal with Russian oil giant Rosneft to provide access to lucrative oil resources in the Arctic.


    Rosneft's largest shareholder is the Russian government. Putin attended the Exxon signing ceremony and later awarded Tillerson the country's Order of Friendship.

    Other contenders for the secretary of state position include former CIA Director David Petraeus; Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker; and former UN Ambassador John Bolton.

    Google shows nothing about his stands on illegal immigration. Until we can get some solid information on his views about illegal immigration, I have to say no to this guy.

    Notice that more and more of Trump's nomination are people with no easily visible record of their political history. That is not a coincidence.

    Rex Tillerson: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    Published
    12:49 pm EST, December 10, 2016 Updated 6:28 pm EST, December 10, 2016 Comment By Daniel S. Levine 16.5k

    Rex Tillerson, the CEO, chairman and president of Exxon Mobil, is now the front-runner to be Donald Trump’s Secretary of State. (Getty)

    Rex Tillerson, the current CEO, chairman and president of ExxonMobil Corporation, is suddenly the front-runner to be Donald Trump‘s Secretary of State after Rudy Giuliani took himself out of the running for any cabinet position.

    Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is still a candidate, as is Dana Rohrbacher, but The Wall Street Journal reported on December 9 that Tillerson is now the “leading candidate” for the job. On December 10, NBC News reported that Tillerson is “expected” to be Secretary of State, citing two sources.


    Although the 64-year-old Tillerson has worked around the globe as an Exxon executive long before the merger of Exxon and Mobil in 1999, he has no experience in government or working as a diplomat.

    He also has close ties to Russia, which will come under increased scrutiny after The Washingon Post reported that a secret CIA assessment concluded that Russia took steps during the 2016 presidential election to help Trump win the presidency.


    Tillerson, who has been at Exxon since 1975 and is a native of Wichita Falls, Texas, is married to Renda St. Clair and they have four children. Tillerson was inducted into the Texas Business Hall of Fame in 2013.


    The Washington Post reported
    in April 2016 that Tillerson’s salary is $27.3 million, which was down 18 percent from the previous year. He was expected to retire in March. The Post reports that he has a $69.5 million pension plan and Exxon stock worth about $218 million.


    Here’s a look at Tillerson’s life and career.



    1. Tillerson Doesn’t Support Sanctions on Russia, Calling Them Ineffective

    Rex Tillerson with Vladimir Putin in 2011. The two first met in 1999. (Getty)

    Tillerson’s links to Russia date back to the late 1990s, when he first met Vladimir Putin in 1999. in 2011, ExxonMobil began a partnership with Rosneft, the government-owned Russian oil company, for exploration in the Black Sea and Arctic. Two years later, Putin presented Tillerson with the Order of Friendship, one of Russia’s highest civilian honors.

    In March 2014, Russia annexed Crimea, resulting in sanctions from both the European Union and the U.S.

    The president of Rosneft was also targeted by the sanctions.


    In May 2014, Tillerson told reporters that the sanctions had no impact on Exxon’s business in Russia, The Associated Press reported at the time.


    “There has been no impact on any of our business activities in Russia to this point, nor has there been any discernible impact on the relationship,” he said.

    “The organizations continue to work business as usual.”


    Tillerson also said that he believed sanctions were ineffective and opposes them. He said he spoke with U.S. officials about his views.


    But as 2014 continued, Exxon did start to feel the effects of sanctions. As Bloomberg reports, Exxon could not continue drilling at a well a mile below the surface off the Siberian coast. It was estimated that the well could have pumped out a billion barrels, worth about $97 billion at the time. After the sanctions were imposed, Exxon packed up the drilling rig.


    In October 2016, OilPrice.com reported that ExxonMobil lost $1 billion due to the sanctions.


    When The Wall Street Journal reported on December 6 that Tillerson was being considered for a role in the Trump administration, the paper noted that most of his holdings of Exxon shares won’t vest for a decade and the value of these would only go up if Russian sanctions were dropped.


    Tillerson was also back in Russia in June for the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum for the first time in two years, Reuters reported.


    Arizona Senator John McCain told Fox News that Tillerson’s ties to Putin and Russia are concerning.


    “I’d have to examine it,” McCain said. “You want to give the president of the United States the benefit of the doubt because the people have spoken. But Vladimir Putin is a thug, bully and a murderer, and anybody else who describes him as anything else is lying.”


    Mark Salter, who was an aide for McCain, tweeted that Tillerson would “sell out NATO for Sakhalin oil and his pal, Vlad.”

    Mark Salter @MarkSalter55

    Tillerson would sell out NATO for Sakhalin oil and his pal, Vlad. Should be a rough confirmation hearing, and a no vote on the Senate floor. https://twitter.com/rebeccaballhaus/status/805549908610650114 …

    2. Tillerson Supports a Carbon Tax, But Also Said That the World Will Continue Using Fossil Fuels, ‘Whether They Like It or Not’

    (Getty)

    As a giant in the oil industry, Exxon has long been the target of environmentalists. The company tries to combat this by saying it supports a carbon tax, but as The Wall Street Journal reported in June 2016, the company hasn’t been actively pushing for it. Exxon frequently cites a 2009 speech Tillerson gave to show that he has supported a carbon tax for several years.

    Tillerson said in the speech:
    As a businessman it is hard to speak favorably about any new tax. But a carbon tax strikes me as a more direct … a more transparent … and a more effective approach. It avoids the costs and complexity of having to build a new market for securities traders or the necessity of adding a new layer of regulators and administrators to police companies and consumers. And a carbon tax can be more easily implemented. It could be levied under the current tax code without requiring significant new infrastructure or enforcement bureaucracies.

    A carbon tax is also the most efficient means of reflecting the cost of carbon in all economic decisions – from investments made by companies to fuel their requirements to the product choices made by consumers.

    However, their support of an effort to curb global warming doesn’t mean that Tillerson believes fossil fuels will really go out of fashion. “The world is going to have to continue using fossil fuels, whether they like it or not,” Tillerson said at an investors meeting in May 2016, the Financial Times’ Ed Crooks told Newsweek.


    During this meeting, 81 percent of shareholders voted against Exxon publicly supporting the Paris Climate Agreement.


    In November 2015, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman launched an investigation into ExxonMobil to learn if they lied to investors about climate change, USA Today reported at the time.

    Schneiderman issued subpoenas for internal documents.


    “The charges are pretty unfounded, without any substance at all,” Tillerson told Fox News after Schneiderman launched his
    investigation. “And they’re dealing with a period of time that happened decades ago, so there’s a lot I could say about it. I’m not sure how helpful it would be for me to talk about it.”


    Greenpeace USA issued a statement about Tillerson’s potential nomination from Greenpeace USA Spokesperson Cassady Craighill. It reads:

    Just when we thought Trump’s cabinet could not get farther away from the needs of the American people, he sneaks in a Saturday appointment of Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. In this position, Tillerson will try his hardest to silence global initiatives and the right of state attorney generals to hold fossil fuel companies legally accountable for climate change. We will not be silenced, and we will not allow this cabinet of billionaires to steamroll the people.


    If the U.S. Senate has any interest is protecting science, public dissent and the future of the human race, they should not confirm Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. If climate change denial is going to the default position of the Trump White House, then relentless resistance will be the default position of the American people.

    3. Tillerson Has Supported Free Trade, Which Trump Railed Against During the Election

    (Getty)

    While Trump spent time on the campaign trail criticizing trade deals like NAFTA and TPP, Tillerson has supported free trade in the past. That makes sense, since Exxon has operations on all six continents and in over 50 countries.

    In a 2009 speech at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Tillerson pushed for more free trade agreements.


    Here’s what Tillerson said on free trade in the speech:

    The need for international cooperation provides another opportunity for government to exercise a unique and positive role – by fostering free trade.

    We know from history that innovation and economic progress depend on the free flow of goods, services, capital and expertise across borders.


    By enabling advanced economies and innovative companies to create partnerships, work across borders, and train local populations, government can support the most efficient use of resources and human capital. And as we confront our current economic challenges, Congress must resist the urge to turn its back on these proven policies. The United States cannot afford to raise barriers to trade.


    History reminds us that governmental policies that limit free markets and free trade can lead to a prolonged stagnation and substantial job losses – especially during times of economic weakness and recession.

    This isn’t a view that Tillerson has moved away from. During a keynote speech at the IHS CERAweek event in Houston in 2015, he advocated for free trade in energy.


    “Our industry continues to struggle under the weight of policies that are the products of 1970’s thinking.

    This must change,” he said. “Free trade in energy will lead to increased investment, job creation and energy production.”

    4. Tillerson Was President of Boy Scouts of America & Pushed for Openly Gay Youths to be Allowed to Join

    (Getty)

    Although Tillerson has spent his entire business career at Exxon, he has found time for other activities, including continuing his support for Boy Scouts of America. As the Dallas Morning News reported in a profile of Tillerson, he was president of the organization from 2010 to 2012.

    During his tenure, he convinced the Boy Scouts to allow openly gay youths to join, but it wasn’t until July 2015 that the ban on gay adult troop leaders was lifted.


    “He was instrumental in leading the organization through an important period of growth and development, while upholding the long-standing traditions of character and good citizenship that are essential to Scouting’s mission,” the Boy Scouts said in a statement to USA Today on December 5.


    Despite Tillerson’s support for gays in the Boy Scouts, it wasn’t until January 2015 that Exxon finally changed its Equal Employment Opportunity policy to include banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity, the Human Rights Campaign reported.

    5. Tillerson Has Zero Experience in Government or as a Diplomat, Unlike Past Secretaries of State

    (Getty)

    When The Wall Street Journal first reported that Tillerson was being considered for Secretary of State, the paper noted that Exxon executives – and even Tillerson himself – were surprised.

    After all, Tillerson has no experience at any level of government. He’s spent his entire business career with one company. He has represented Exxon on an international stage, but he’s never had to represent the interests of his country.


    By comparison, past Secretaries of State have had government experience. Both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry served in the U.S. Senate before President Barack Obama named them Secretary of State. Colin Powell was a four-star General and former Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, while Condoleeza Rice was on the National Security Council under George H.W. Bush and was President George W. Bush’s National Security Advisor before they made George W. Bush’s Secretaries of State.


    According to Tillerson’s company bio, he has a degree in civil engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and joined Exxon in 1975 as a production manager. He climbed the ranks, ultimately becoming president of Exxon Neftegas Limited in 1998, which was when he first started working in Russia. He’s been CEO of the company since January 1, 2006.


    The Journal also reports that Tillerson’s political positions on issues aside from free trade are mostly unknown, although he is described as a “staunch conservative.” The Dallas Morning News reports that he supported Jeb Bush during the early days of the Republican presidential race.
