(FOX NEWS) President-elect Donald Trump announced Tuesday that he intends to nominate ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.
Tillerson impressed Trump during the two meetings he had with him. Trump had high praise for the energy titan, calling him a “world class player” in an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”
“He's in charge of an oil company that's pretty much double the size of his next nearest competitor," Trump told host Chris Wallace. “It’s been a company that's been unbelievably managed, and to me a great advantage is he knows many of the players and he knows them well. He does massive deals in Russia, he does massive deals for the company. Not for himself, for the company.”
