Trump’s Diplomat: How Rex Tillerson Is Translating ‘America First’ Into Foreign Policy

“[W]hy … did [Rex Tillerson] want the gig? ‘I didn’t want this job. I didn’t seek this job.’ He paused to let that sink in. A beat or two passed before an aide piped up to ask him why he said yes. ‘My wife told me I’m supposed to do this.’ After watching the contortions of my face as I tried to figure out what to say next, he humbly explained that he had never met the president before the election. As president-elect, Trump wanted to have a conversation with Tillerson ‘about the world’ given what he gleaned from the complex global issues he dealt with as CEO of Exxon Mobil. ‘When he asked me at the end of that conversation to be secretary of state, I was stunned.’ When Tillerson got home and told his wife, Renda St. Clair, she shook her finger in his face and said, ‘I told you God’s not through with you.'”
