Rex Tillerson of Exxon Mobil Expected to Be Named Trump’s Secretary of State

President-Elect Donald Trump is expected to announce Rex Tillerson, the CEO of Exxon Mobile, for the position of Secretary of State.

The announcement is expected to be made next week to the excitement of Trump supporters everywhere who didn’t want to see Romney get the nod.

NBC reports:

Donald Trump is expected to nominate Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, two sources close to the transition process told NBC News on Saturday.

Tillerson, 64, became president of the Texas-based oil company in 2004 and has a close business relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has spent his entire career at the company now known as Exxon Mobil.

The sources cautioned that nothing is final until the president-elect officially announces it, likely next week.

Tillerson met Saturday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York, the president-elect’s spokesperson confirmed.
