Rex Tillerson was one of those opportunists. Besides the opportunity to advance his personal agenda, there was absolutely nothing for him to gain by joining the Trump administration. He made a fortune as Exxon CEO, is recognized the world over and commanded the respect of heads of state around the world. Even in countries where a Secretary of State would face obstacles, Rex Tillerson moved about and around with ease. Why in the world would any sane individual want to throw all that away to work for a president who thinks and acts like a twelve years old child with uncontrollable tantrum? Why would a successful CEO of a global organization subject himself to such humiliation?
GREED! Absolute Greed!
It’s not love for the country; it wasn’t patriotism. It’s the opportunity to open more doors to further his personal agenda.
