Longtime ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson Confirmed as Secretary of State

Washington, February 2 (RHC)-- The full U.S. Senate has confirmed longtime ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to be secretary of state.  Reuters reports the 56-43 Senate vote was the closest vote -- by a wide margin --for a secretary of state nominee in at least a half-century. 

Three Democrats backed Tillerson’s nomination: Mark Warner of Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia.  Trump’s nomination of Tillerson has been widely condemned by environmental activists.
