TIMOTHY CAMA – Scarborough: Trump considering Exxon CEO for secretary of State

President-elect Donald Trump is considering ExxonMobil chief Rex Tillerson to be secretary of State, according to MSNBC host Joe Scarborough.

Scarborough tweeted that while Trump thought his meeting with potential nominee Mitt Romney was “great,” he’s also started considering Tillerson.

 The Trump transition team did not respond to a request for comment. An Exxon spokesman also declined to comment on Scarborough’s report.

Texas native Tillerson has led the United States’s largest oil company since 2006 and has worked there for more than four decades.

Trump reportedly is also considering Romney, the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee, as well as former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, retired Gen. David Petraeus and Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) for the top diplomatic post.
