United States top diplomat to accompany Trump in Asia trip

United States top diplomat to accompany Trump in Asia trip”

Trump said there are "some people" at the State Department who he is not happy with, but he didn't name any names.

Critics have claimed that the empty positions are damaging U.S. foreign policy.

U.S. President Donald Trump declined on Thursday to give a full-throated endorsement of his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, saying that "we'll see" if he will serve out his term with the president.

"The one that matters is me", Trump said.

Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Nov. 3: United States Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be visiting Myanmar on November 15 to meet and consult with senior Burmese leaders and officials on actions to address the humanitarian crisis in Rakhine State and the USA support for Burma's democratic transition.

"Will he be with you through the duration?"

NBC News reported in early October that Tillerson considered resigning from his post atop the State Department over the summer, at one point reportedly referring to the president as a "moron".

Despite the unfilled positions, Trump suggested that the State Department's head is giving his best effort on matters of foreign policy.

"I am a business person". "The one that matters is me".

"Well, we'll see", Trump said.

This will be Tillerson's first ever trip to the Myanmar.

"It's called cost-saving", Trump said.

"One would hope that if he's the only one that matters that he at least gets some feedback from top staff who perhaps can know a little bit more about some of these things than he does", Representative Eliot Engel, top Democrat on the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, told Reuters.
