#Trump #USA - #RexTillerson former CEO of #Exxonmobil confirmed as Secretary of State

Exxonmobil employees 83,700 employees globally. Likely more via affiliates.

Exxonmobil operates in 200 countries globally.  Directly and indirectly and likely more.

Exxonmobil has the majority of employees as immigrants in every country with operations but does hire mostly residents of the country they operate in.

None of the employees speak for the company and the company reserves the right to fire anyone who gives false information.  However, the company does care for any employees who leave willingly or unwillingly and does train all the employees to be able to survive after leaving the company.

I am not sharing the BBC article about Mr. Rex Tillerson because I am employed by Exxonmobil. I am sharing it because I think he is a good man.  A brilliant man.  He deserves the position of Secretary of State and you will find many who will say the same.  CONGRATULATIONS MR. TILLERSON.  Congratulations USA.  You got a winner and a hard working gentleman.  He left a lot behind to serve Americans.  I hope one day you will all know.

Rex Tillerson, the former chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil, has been confirmed by the US Senate to become President Donald Trump’s secretary of state.
The Texas native, 64, was cleared for full Senate approval in a 56-43 vote.
The vote came after Senate Republicans changed the rules in order to approve Mr Trump's nominees for health and treasury, despite a Democratic boycott.
Mr Tillerson, who has never held political office, faced intense scrutiny over his ties to Russia.

The former oil chief forged multibillion-dollar deals with Russia's state oil company, Rosneft, and was awarded the Order of Friendship by the Kremlin in 2013.
In his Senate confirmation hearing, he admitted that the West had reason to be alarmed by Russian aggression, but he refused under questioning to label Mr Putin a war criminal.
As America's top diplomat, Mr Tillerson will handle relations with countries including China and Russia and negotiate matters such as climate change and human rights, on behalf of President Trump.
The Senate voted largely along party lines, despite speculation that some Republicans would not approve his nomination.
Though some critics suggested Mr Tillerson would not be able to give up his corporate interests, supporters contended his background as a global dealmaker would bring fresh perspective to the role.
Mr Tillerson's confirmation was more contentious than those of his predecessors.
The Senate confirmed President Barack Obama's selections John Kerry 94-3 and Hillary Clinton 94-2.
President George W Bush's secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, was confirmed 85-13 while Colin Powell was approved by a voice vote.
One of Mr Tillerson's first challenges may be allaying fears at the State Department over President Trump's order to ban travel or immigration from seven mostly Muslim nations.
Nearly 1,000 US diplomats and Foreign Service officers signed a memo of dissent on Tuesday regarding the travel ban.
Also on Wednesday, Republicans on a US Senate committee pushed through the approval of Mr Trump's Treasury nominee Steven Mnuchin and Health and Human Services pick, Tom Price.

Who is Trump's attorney general pick Jeff Sessions?
After Democrats boycotted committee votes on both nominees, Republicans changed the rules to approve the candidates without their votes.
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions was also confirmed as Mr Trump's attorney general, despite heated exchanges between Senate committee members.
But Senate Democrats managed to stall a confirmation for Mr Trump's pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency by refusing to show up.
