    What the Chinese think about Exxon's Rex Tillerson

    What the Chinese think about Exxon's Rex Tillerson

    BEIJING, China — ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson’s expected nomination as the next US secretary of state is perplexing some informed business people in Beijing.


    The questions take two different tracks. The first relates to Tillerson’s experience. “Is he qualified?” asked an executive in the banking industry. “It looks like Trump is filing up his Cabinet with people with no government experience.”


    When I noted that this was not lost on Trump and was in fact part of his strategy, the banking executive responded: “Well, who knows if that will work.” (Because these individuals had not been authorized to speak by their companies, they requested their names not be used.)

    “He has experience running and representing Exxon all over the globe, sure, but that’s not the same as representing America,” the banker said.

    The second line of questioning pertains to Tillerson and his and Exxon’s (XOM) relationship to Russia and Vladimir Putin.

    “Oh yes, he has experience with Putin,” a Chinese oil company executive told me. Meaning what? “He’s been working with the Russians since the 1990s on their big oil and gas [Sakhalin] field. Everyone knows he is close to Putin.”


    This executive wondered if this was a message not only to Russia, but also to the Chinese. “For sure it means Russia and America will be close. Does this mean China is out? They [the new administration in Washington] may find out these relationships [between China, Russia and U.S.] are more complicated than they think.”

    “It is like strongman to strongman with [Tillerson] and Putin,” says another Chinese executive who works for a giant multinational oil company. “He [Tillerson] was focused on execution and cost management as CEO. This is different from his new job. So now we have strongman management of international affairs.”

    These oil execs also point out that ExxonMobil does business in China.


    According to the company website: “ExxonMobil’s history in China dates back to the 1890s, when Standard Oil, the predecessor of ExxonMobil, began marketing kerosene in China.”


    Today the company has significant operations in China including exploration, gas and fuels marketing, lubricants sales and services, chemicals and power generation, including a $4.5 billion refining and petrochemical complex in Fujian Province. The Wall Street Journal reported the company was planning on opening 750 gas stations in China, even as it was selling company-owned stations in the US.


    The company has some 1300 employees in China, 300 of which are in Hong Kong, the rest on the Mainland.


    If Tillerson is named and confirmed as secretary of state, the Chinese will be paying attention, particularly when it comes to his relationship with Russia. His then-former company’s operations in China will be on their radar, too.

    That's great news. Tillerson has relationships with the Chinese as well. Trump said he has these relationships all over the world, what better person to have as Secretary of State? I can not think of one. It's an extraordinary choice, I hope he makes it and finalizes it on Monday. The sooner the better.

    Out of what?

    The new Administration will be the first one in 70 years that fully understands the relationships.

    That's precisely why Tillerson is such a great choice for Secretary of State. Tillerson not only knows the Chinese as well as he knows the Russians, Trump has nominated Terry Branstad the Governor of Iowa as US Ambassador to China, who also has very very close relationships with the President of China.

    Trump is going to have one of the best Cabinets ever. Trump wants peace and prosperous relationships with everyone in ways that benefit the United States and the American People while still being fair and reasonable with other nations, and he knows how to do that. That's why everyone needs to get out of his way and let him do it.

    That means Democrats will lose some elections due to his success. They need to learn how to put our country and citizen best interest above their own election goals. Winning elections is fun, but that isn't the mission. The mission is to fix our country. Somewhere along the way, Democrats and some Republicans seem to have forgotten that.

    Rex Tillerson is ‘the very definition of a GLOBALIST’



    Rex Tillerson is ‘the very definition of a GLOBALIST’ – Bill Kristol


    DEC. 11, 2016 11:25 AM

    Bill Kristol, the Dark Prince of Neo-Con Sith Lords, summed up what a lot of critics say about Trump’s reported State Secretary pick, Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson:

    Here’s the Trump tweet he linked:

    America First?
    Umm...not so fast.
    As SecState, CEO of multinational that cuts deals with one and all--the very definition of a "globalist."https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/807970490635743237 …

    Update: He also added this:

    @BillKristol


    Odd: Trump supporters rally behind quintessential "globalist" for Sec State. Or does "globalist" not mean what it seems?#AskingForAHebrew
    11:13 AM - 11 Dec 201


    And he would know it absolutely, given he’s been accused of being that as an epithet so many times. It’s really striking to me that Trump is touting this guy as such an awesome dude when he seems to fit so many of the criticisms he had against such “globalists” during the election. He even ripped into Exxon Mobil in 2011, accusing them of colluding with the OPEC countries to fix oil prices, and said this price-fixing was WORSE than China!!! How does he square that withcalling him such a great guy now?! I guess he doesn’t have to. His cult leader word is all some people need to hear.
