After more than a month of speculation, President-elect Donald Trump said he will announce his pick for secretary of State on Tuesday morning — and the favorite for the slot is ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, USA TODAY reports.
“I will be making my announcement on the next Secretary of State tomorrow morning,” Trump tweeted tonight.
Trump told Fox News Sunday that Tillerson is “much more than a business executive.” “I mean, he’s a world-class player,” said Trump. “He’s in charge of, I guess the largest company in the world. He’s in charge of an oil company that’s pretty much double the size of his next serious competitor. ”
