SOT, Rex Tillerson, US Secretary of State (English): «I’m just, I’m not going to deal with petty stuff like that. I mean this is what I don’t understand about Washington.

And I’m just not going to be part of this effort to divide this... Еще administration.»
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson addressed recent rumours regarding his supposed resignation from the Trump administration in a press statement in Washington DC on Wednesday, saying he had «never considered» leaving his post.
He went on to say that there are some who are looking to «sow dissention to advance their own agenda» and «undermine US President Donald Trump's agenda.»
During the statement, Tillerson praised Trump and listed what he saw as the various achievements of his administration.
«He loves his country. He puts Americans and America first. He’s smart. He demands results wherever he goes and he holds those around him accountable for whether they’ve done the job he asks them to do,» Tillerson said of the US President.
Tillerson also refused to answer a question relating to whether he had referred to Trump as a «moron» during a meeting at the Pentagon on July 20, saying «the places I come from, we don’t deal with that kind of petty nonsense.»
The statement comes during a period of percieved tention between Tillerson and Trump, with Trump recently tweeting that the Secretary of State was «wasting his time» by negotiating with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
