Rex Tillerson: state department can be cut as we will soon solve global conflicts

Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that the Trump administration’s proposal to slash the state department and foreign aid budget is partly based on an expectation it will be able to resolve some of the global conflicts that have been absorbing costly diplomatic and humanitarian support.

But in a vivid display of the most urgent diplomatic challenge facing the US, Tillerson was speaking as North Korea carried out a new ballistic missile test – the first since it fired a missile over Japan in mid-September.

The secretary of state presented this rationale for the budget cut at a time when he is under fire from former US diplomats for gutting his state department at a time of multiple crises around the world – an allegation Tillerson denied.

2. ...and he called Trump a moron. He is so bad too.

How could a person who ran the largest company in the world, traveled ectensively, knew world leaders and was culturally sophisticated be such a wimpy, passive idiot.

3. Putin has ordered this, and so be it. It will be done.

Tillerson personally will make hundreds of millions if not billions with the oil deal.

5. How low can Rex go?

Rex is still representing his mentors providing a golden parachute from Exxon. It's all about oil for him. He has no loyalty to the rump, just self serving interests. He represents the Saudis and Exxon who could care less about US interests.

7. Yeah, everything is going to solve itself just because Trump is President.

Kushner may have a lasting peace in the Middle East by Christmas, and monkeys are going to fly out of my butt.

8. In Trump/Putin's plan for America there will be no need for St Dept,

 

no US Constitution since USA will merge with USSR.

Lack of a US State Dept leaves us vulnerable to dictator nations giddy with their shot at carving up America.

If this path continues we will have nothing but what the Russian citizens have, if even that.
Remember that their entire goal is destruction of the world power, the USA.

We have Mueller & Schneiderman & our foreign allies at the moment.
That is it.

17. He says, we'll take care of it, like the WH plumbing is bad.

So, reassuring! We are talking nuclear war here. Yet, he loudly goes after Pelosi and Schumer like a petty 7th grader.
