Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: Trump Speaks for Himself

HeadlineAug 29, 2017

President Trump has faced widespread condemnation, including from the United Nations, for failing to quickly condemn the white supremacist violence. On Sunday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Trump speaks only for himself. This is Tillerson, speaking with Chris Wallace of Fox News.

Chris Wallace: “When the president gets into the kind of controversy he does, and the U.N. committee responds the way it does, it seems to say they begin to doubt, are—whether we’re living those values.”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “I don’t believe anyone doubts the American people’s values or the commitment of the American government or the government’s agencies to advancing those values and defending those values.”

Chris Wallace: “And the president’s values?”

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: “The president speaks for himself, Chris.”
