Tillerson could quit as Secretary of State

Tillerson could quit as Secretary of State”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is expressing growing frustration with the Trump administration and is weighing whether to step down from the post, according to a report from CNN. The shakeup of the White House's communications department also drew attention when Sean Spicer stepped down as press secretary on Friday and hedge fund owner Anthony Scaramucci was installed in the department's top job.

"This Tillerson State Department Report blames Israel for Palestinian Arab terrorist attacks on innocent Jews and Americans, ignores and whitewashes the Palestinian Authority's (PA) "pay to slay" payments to Arabs to murder Jews, among other travesties", said a ZOA statement Monday about the report, published last week.

Sources told CNN that an even bigger blow for Tillerson was the president's sharp and public criticism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, one of Trump's earliest and major supporters.

Tillerson has a growing number of differences with the White House, including a new debate over USA policy toward Iran, the CNN broadcaster reported on Monday. That would have allowed him to claim to have put in a year as America's top diplomat and provided time to continue efforts to reorganise the State Department.

But the friends now say there has been a noticeable increase in Mr Tillerson's frustration and his doubts that his tug of war with the White House will subside any time soon.

Both of these sources are familiar with Tillerson conversations with friends outside Washington.

Tillerson's differences with the White House first emerged in early March when the administration proposed to drastically slash State Department funding.

Tillerson and Trump have also publicly disagreed about a dispute between Saudi Arabia and Qatar over Qatar's alleged support of terrorism.
