At Break with Trump, Tillerson to Urge Diplomacy with North Korea at United Nations

HeadlineDec 15, 2017

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is speaking to the U.N. Security Council today, where he’s expected to again recommend talks and diplomacy with North Korea—a stance that puts him at odds with President Trump. Earlier this week, Tillerson broke with the administration and said the United States was ready to begin talks with the North “without precondition.” Only hours later, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders contradicted Tillerson and said President Trump considers talks with North Korea “pointless.” The public rift between Tillerson and President Trump comes amid reports the White House is planning to oust Tillerson from the State Department and replace him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
