Rex Tillerson is a man of action and few words. He’s a tireless worker. That’s how he’s become one of the most successful leaders in industry.
Today the press got disappointed when Tillerson refused to bring any reporters on his plane. When asked to comment Rex had the following answer:
The Daily Caller reported:
The U.S. diplomatic press corps was deeply angered when the Department of State announced it did not intend on bringing any members of the press corps aboard the secretary’s aircraft. “The State Department Correspondents’ Association is disappointed that Secretary Tillerson chose to travel this week to North Asia without a full contingent of the diplomatic press corps or even a pool reporter,” the group said in a statement.
Tillerson defended his action, saying, “There’s this long tradition that the Secretary spends time on the plane with the press. I don’t know that I’ll do a lot of that. I’m just not … that’s not the way I tend to work. That’s not the way I tend to spend my time. I spend my time working on this airplane.”
Imagine that! A politician that would rather just roll his sleeves up and get to business instead of bloviating with reporters and wasting the tax payer’s money.
This is another reason why Trump’s cabinet will be the best in history. All business no nonsense.
