Rex Tillerson: Trump Is “Undisciplined” With Instinct To Violate Law

Terminated Secretary of State Rex Tillerson chatted with CBS News’s Bob Schieffer in Houston about his time in the Trump administration.

In the interview, Tillerson calls Trump “undisciplined” with an uncontrollable urge to “violate the law.”

The Washington Post has the details:

“What was challenging for me coming from the disciplined, highly process-oriented Exxon Mobil corporation,” Tillerson said, was “to go to work for a man who is pretty undisciplined, doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things, but rather just kind of says, ‘This is what I believe.’”

Perhaps the most damning quote came when Tillerson talked about how Trump as president regularly attempted to do things that violated the law. “So often, the president would say, ‘Here’s what I want to do, and here’s how I want to do it’ and I would have to say to him, ‘Mr. President, I understand what you want to do, but you can’t do it that way. It violates the law.”
