Tillerson Reveals Support For TPP, NAFTA – Bad As Romney As Secretary of State

rex tillerson


A big problem with Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State surfaced in his hearings on Wednesday during questioning by Senator Jeff Merkley, an Oregon Democrat. In phrasing his question, Merkley noted that during the campaign “The President-elect talked a lot about what he saw as major mistakes with NAFTA and with giving China full access to our market, in terms of its impact on American manufacturing.”

Merkley continued, “He was very critical of the TPP. Do you share his vision that NAFTA and WTO China access, that TPP are big mistakes in terms of creating living wage American jobs?” Tillerson talks like a politician even though he’s never officially been one, saying, “Senator, my understanding of the issue that the President-elect has with those trade agreements is in the case of NAFTA it’s an agreement that’s been in place for decades now and I think even President Pena-Nieto of Mexico has indicated that ‘Yes, perhaps it needs a relook, that we’re in a different era now, both in terms of the type of trade and technology, but also the global trading environment has changed since that agreement was put in place.” At what point was it good for America, Tillerson? It has been a job killer from the beginning. It has nothing to do with the “era” we’re in.

Asked if he shares Mr. Trump’s opposition to TPP, Tillerson replied, “I do not oppose TPP. I share some of his views regarding whether the agreement that was negotiated serves all of America’s interests best.”

As for NAFTA, the fact that it sucking jobs out of America and our economic life should have been a factor in his response and reasoning, referencing the changed “global” trade environment in a manner consistent not with Mr. Trump’s America first thinking but with the current Obama regime and all of the supporters of these multi-lateral “trade agreements” that put America’s interests second or lower in rank to other nations and corporate interests.

Our Secretary of State should be firmly opposed to TPP and Tillerson not having a problem with it is either an indication that he doesn’t know what’s in it or that he is one of the enemy, those who would have America and our Constitution subjugated to foreign control in order to further the establishment of the economic new world order and the political and sovereignty baggage that doing so carries with it. TPP kills American sovereignty in a multitude of ways the way NAFTA has killed our jobs. If Tillerson isn’t opposed to it, which he freely states he is not, America needs to be opposed to it.

Nobody’s perfect, Mr. Trump made a bad choice. Replace the globalist profiteer Tillerson with a patriot and move on. That doesn’t mean Romney.

6 Comments on Tillerson Reveals Support For TPP, NAFTA – Bad As Romney As Secretary of State

  1. Not happy about this added information on Tillerson! I could care less how nice he was when he served on a jury, blah, blah, blah! I believe Donald J. Trump this is a mistake, your 2nd one of choice and the first one was Nikki Haley! I believe we, the people, have a different perspective. Personally I hope neither one of them are confirmed and the right choices can be made.

  2. Tillerson needs to go and a new patriotic American nominated in his place. Fire him NOW!

  3. During the day, Trump “admitted” that Russia hacked the dem’s emails. I don’t think Trump believes that. But, it is what he said. By saying that, he is avoiding an unpleasant skirmish for now. Instead, deferring it until after January 20 when “new information” will reveal he was wrong. That Russia didn’t really hack the emails. It’s easier to be wrong up front to survive the moment and correct the record later when the heat is off.

    Is it possible Tillerson is doing the same sort of thing? That is, being falsely critical of Putin, favoring the TPP, misrepresenting the facts of what occurred in the Ukraine… all to avoid conflict with certain folks like McCain and Graham, until he has their confirmation votes? After he’s confirmed, it’ll be relatively simple for him to “see the light” based on new material that comes forward that shows his earlier positions were wrong. Is this possible?

    Otherwise, he has simply swallowed the koolaid and either needs to be corrected or he needs to be replaced as a candidate for SOS.

  4. aren’t even the dumbocraps against TPP?
    Time for Trump to say “you’re fired”

  5. TPP is terrible for the US…. Pick another SOS… Definitely not Romney.
