Exxon for State Department would be disaster for environment
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Donald Trump has chosen Rex Tillerson, CEO of ExxonMobil, as his Secretary of State. Friends of the Earth U.S. President Erich Pica issued the following response:
Donald Trump just told the world we are the United States of Exxon. The Rex Tillerson rumor confirms that Trump is not interested in draining the swamp or championing the regular guy. He wants to create a government controlled by robber barons that will accelerate the demise of workers, the environment and any semblance of a government for and by the people. Rex Tillerson should be prosecuted for the climate fraud and lying that Exxon Mobil has commenced over the years, not nominated as Secretary of State. The Senate must fight Tillerson’s appointment for the sake of our climate and country.
