Washington, D.C. – Today, President-elect Donald Trump officially selected Exxon Mobile CEO Rex Tillerson as his pick for Secretary of State. In response, NJDC released the following statement:
"With his latest pick, President-elect Trump continues to double down on his mixed record when it comes to issues the pro-Israel community cares most about. At best, Tillerson is an unknown quantity when it comes to Israel, at worst his affinity for Putin and business dealings with some of Israel's worst enemies adds to the growing list of fears for supporters of the US-Israel relationship."
