Earlier this morning President Elect Donald Trump announced who will be nominated to take up the position of Secretary of State during the start of his administration in January. Throughout recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about who would be selected for this position, Mitt Romney, former governor and republican nominee for president, and Rex Tillerson, ExxonMobil CEO, were among the most highly considered for the position. But this morning Tillerson was announced as the nominee for the next Secretary of State.
