Rexit? Tillerson Reportedly Considering Early Exit Amid Trump Administration Chaos

Perpetual chaos within the Trump administration is apparently starting to take it's toll on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, at least according to some anonymous sources, and has prompted rumors that he may depart his post before the end of the year. According to various media outlets, Tillerson has grown frustrated with his lack of autonomy, constant internal policy contradictions and public disputes between the White House and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, among other things. Per Reuters:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has told friends he will be lucky to last a year in his job, according to a friend, while two officials said national security adviser H.R. McMaster was frustrated by what he sees as disorganization and indiscipline on key policy issues inside the White House.

A source familiar with the situation told Reuters that Tillerson was "very upset at not having autonomy, independence and control over his own department and the ability to do the job the way the job ... is traditionally done."

The source said he had heard nothing about any possible departure, but added: "The situation doesn't seem to be getting any better, and in some respects appears to be getting worse."

According to CNN's anonymous sources, Tillerson has told friends outside of Washington that he'd like to remain in his post through the end of the year though those same sources question whether another 5 months will be possible.

You gonna fall for this? You really think T-Rex would abandon Trump the way Sessions apparently has? Dream on, peeps. Dream on.

Not going to happen. fake news. Sessions on the other hand needs to go. A new AG could take back the Russia investigation from the AAG, since Sessions recused. The new AG would then strictly limit Muellers investigation. That is needed.
And a new AG could reopen investigation of alot of Clinton crimes.

Tyler,
If you hope to be a respected journalist, learn the difference between "its" and "it's".

The Dems are causing the chaos to force failure now that the Republicans are in control. They better forget the press for a while and get to work for the people who elected them.
