Tillerson: Trump 'So Often' Suggested Policy That 'Violates The Law'

In a rare public appearance since he was sacked from office, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called President Donald Trump "undisciplined" and claimed that Trump would often ask him to do things unaware that such actions would violate the law.

According to The Houston Chronicle, he also took aim at Twitter, which the President often uses to introduce policy, announce staff changes (including Tillerson's departure), rally support from his base and air his grievances on various issues, among other things.

Breaking with his former boss, Tillerson said that "there's no question" Russian Federation interfered with our elections in 2016, and that the Kremlin's goal is to "undermine our confidence and undermine the world's confidence in us". "It violates the law".

Last year, Trump apparently had a higher opinion of Tillerson's abilities, calling him "our wonderful secretary of state" and declaring that "we work well together".

"Rex Tillerson didn't have the mental capacity needed". "And I can tell you who is going to win". "I didn't know how to conduct my affairs with him any other way than in a very straightforward fashion, and I think he grew exhausted of me being the guy every day that told him, 'You can't do that, '" he said.

Tillerson said Trump believes he is acting on his instincts rather than relying on facts. "Now it is a whole new ballgame, great spirit at State". "We did not have a common value system", Tillerson told CBS News political contributor Bob Schieffer on Thursday.

While the heads over at the Academy haven't mentioned canceling Hart yet, we've seen damaging tweets derail celebrities before. What bothers me about these is you can tell its not just a joke-there's real truth, anger & fear behind these.

The two former businessmen battled publicly over the administration's handling of negotiations with North Korea about the country's nuclear weapons program.

The relationship between Trump and Tillerson had a rapid, expletive-laden downfall from the days of the president lauding the former Exxon Mobil chief as "a world-class player and dealmaker".

When it appeared Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's job was in danger, one of his top desires was reportedly to leave in a dignified manner and not by presidential tweet.

Reports later surfaced that, actually, Tillerson had called Trump, "a f**king moron".

In his remarks in Houston on Thursday, Mr Tillerson did not offer any specific examples of the Trump directives he deemed illegal.
