After the meeting, the US President called the Secretary of state, and expressed the opinion that he did a “wonderful job” and “radiated confidence”.
WASHINGTON, April 15. /Offset. TASS Dmitry Kirsanov/. American President Donald trump watched the live stream of joint press conference of Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov and U.S. Secretary Rex Tillerson. This was reported by the newspaper Politico.
Citing an unnamed representative of the White house, she said that the head of the US administration was watching the broadcast of the press conference of foreign Ministers held at the end of Tillerson’s visit to Moscow on April 11-12, in his personal office. This small room is exclusively for the head of the state, adjacent to the Oval office of the White house.
After the press conference trump, as stated by the source, called Tillerson, expressing the view that he had done a “wonderful job” and “radiated confidence”. Meanwhile, myself, the newspaper writes that “Lavrov is a veteran in the global (political) stage on Wednesday, as expected, beat” Tillerson.
As highlighted in the article, Tillerson is now “the favorite Minister of the trump.” The current chief of American diplomacy “has become one of the most frequent guests of the White house,” often joining Trump in the living quarters at dinner in the format of “one on one”, and also for lunch along with Vice US President Michael Pence, notes Politico.
According to the information it contained, for 83 days of stay trump in power from Tillerson with him held more meetings than any other member of the presidential Cabinet.
If the Secretary is not in a working trip abroad, they trump dine tete-a-tete at least once a week, says the publication
According to the newspaper, only in March, Tillerson held eight meetings with trump. During the same period, the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — “one who is in favor of a member of the Cabinet” — was allegedly accepted by the President only three times.
“I don’t think that’s ever the truth was that Tillerson had limited influence. He always enjoyed the effect, just it was not visible from the outside,” said Elliott Abrams, who claimed the position of first Deputy Secretary of state. His candidacy, however, said “no” to trump. At the time, Abrams was Deputy assistant to US President George Bush on national security.
From his point of view, Tillerson, the Pentagon chief James Mattis and trump’s assistant for national security General Herbert McMaster, to date, have shaped the new US administration, “the triangle of persons of the greatest influence, and it probably is still growing due to (applied April 7) strike on Syria, because he has become so successful in military and political terms”.
