Jake Tapper: There’s Clearly ‘Obvious Tension’ Between Trump and Tillerson

As Jake Tapper discussed the big news about Secretary of State Rex Tillerson today, he said it’s clear there’s “obvious tension” between him and President Trump.

Jake Sullivan, a former State Department official and advisor to Hillary Clinton, said that something “has gone clearly wrong” in Tillerson’s tenure to date and he’s allowed Trump to “undercut and walk all over him.”

Scott Jennings, former special assistant to George W. Bush, said it’s a serious issue if the President and the Secretary of State are not on the same page.

CNN’s Mary Katharine Ham agreed with Tapper about the tension and observed that Tillerson’s “in good graces until he’s not again.”
