Rex Tillerson Could Be a Good Secretary of State— But Not in a Trump Administration

Thu, 15 Dec 2016 16:40:21 -0500

But under Donald Trump, a man of few if any discernible principles beyond a desire for self-aggrandizement, he would be a dangerous choice because his role will be not just to implement policy but—more than most previous secretaries of State—to shape it.
