Secretary of State Rex Tillerson “I’m not going to be part of the effort to divide this administration”

Says he never considered quitting

In an unannounced press conference held this morning, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he never intended to quit, despite recent reports to the contrary.

Widespread speculation that Tillerson was announcing his resignation appeared to be debunked before the conference began:

Tillerson refuted reports Vice President Pence intervened to convince him to stay and says he never considered leaving:

Has there ever been such an uproarious administration as this one? Then, again, considering the times in which we’re living …

    So the media just making up negative stories somehow reflects negatively on the administration?

      Never mind. If your mind is so narrow that you can’t comprehend a simple question without reading some sort of assertion or polemic into it, then any attempt at a discussion would be utterly futile.

Remember when the media required confirmation before running with a story?
It’s almost as if they are projecting their dreams into every story they want to be true.
Dear press. Please report the truth. Please confirm your sources and please don’t be the story.

Jimbo, that advice would have had some merit ten years ago, today it’s like asking a crack addict to leave the toilet seat down.

The media is our Enemy, a propaganda arm of the Left. They are beyond redemption. We should make no attempt to negotiate with them.

How can this administration not look like it’s in an uproar when all the networks and newspapers collude to overturn the election?

If he’s not resigning, Trump needs to fire him. He, and many others in this administration, seem to be working to thwart what the president wants to do. Trump needs to start replacing all these people who are trying to force the policies of the last administration on him, or he will accomplish very little.

Tillerson is the Obama State Department’s representative in the White House, not Trump’s ruler of the department. Trump is going to have to put someone in the job who will purge as many of Obama’s people as possible and impose the president’s policy on the department. If the existing bureaucracy is allowed to make and implement their own policy (and this is happening in many agencies and departments), then they are the real power and it makes no difference who is president, or what he wants.
