I liked Tillerson, he was very business smart. Trump is driving away his support from big business with his big mouth. He is going to lose more and
more support from the Republican congressmen if he keeps this up.
Although, I have not seen the Tillerson talk so I cannot say for sure any of the interpretation of what is stated he said is true. Trump jumps too
fast, bashing Tillerson without actually seeing how he actually worded things is not wise. Also Tillerson is not required to see eye to eye with
whatever Trump says and does. Trump wants loyal yes men, he filled his little world with yes men in his business ventures.
I know, I may be bashed by Trump now on Twitter just because I do not believe in everything he does. Trump is actually showing far left traits in his
attacking people that do not believe the same way he believes. Strange that the Republicans let him even run, both parties seem to be going down the
tubes in getting good presidential candidates. Trump was still a better choice than Hillary though.
Trump once had nothing but praise for Tillerson. The ''best of the best'' kind of stuff.
Now, the rumors once again are flying about John Kelly. That he has been absent from a couple of things he normally is involved in. Speculation is
that it will be a matter of days or even hours until he is out as well. We will have to wait and see on that one.
It has been the same pattern for some time now. Say something not so positive (not even negative) and he will go into baby rambling mode. Whoever, and
whatever at some point they may have done for him.
If I recall correctly, Trump actually did the opposite of yes men which is why he hired the likes of Tillerson and Mattis in good faith. Evidently,
Tillerson must not have been on the same page as Trump with the MAGA strategy.
There could be countless speculative reasons for this but at the end of the day, Trump is making a mistake to be taking the bait and tweeting about
I agree, and that is the conundrum. If as you point out, it is as uncomplicated as that, that Tillerson was just not on the same page as Trump then
fine. And if that is the case then one would suspect that your observation that the best way for Trump to deal with any perceived criticism by just
ignoring it, that would be prudent. However that is not what has happened.
Rather, Trump comes firing back with heavy duty insults. For me, this can be seen as ''just a mistake'' or it can be considered as part of a larger,
more encompassing ''thin skinnedness'' on the part of Trump. While some will see this as a ''one of'' I see it as just one more banana peel.
I agree. We could ALL, always be on the watch for agendas. This is one of the reasons to be here on ATS. There are multiple people who are on the
watch for agendas from the right. There are also many who are on the watch for agendas from the left. It's a two sided ''look-out'' we have here.
