The U.S. Senator from the state of Arizona, John McCain has been desperately trying to sabotage President-Elect Donald Trump’s agenda by badmouthing his people. It seems like he is so full of hatred that he can’t think straight. Maybe it is time for him to take his hatred and go away because this country does not need him impeding Trump’s road to making America great again.
Barack Obama in 2008 was determined by the conservatives as far-left as they come. But this has quickly turned to fury as they have seen GOP leaders like John McCain do nothing.
As per The Hill, it seems like President-Elect Donald Trump’s pick for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson may face an uphill confirmation battle because McCain and other GOP leaders are concerned about his ties with Russia. McCain said that he and several of his colleagues have concerns about Tillerson and some of his past activities, specifically his relationship with Vladimir Putin. He also added that past his concerns, he will still give Tillerson an opportunity to make his case about why he is qualified to be secretary of state.
The Senate Foreign Relations committee has nine Democrats and ten Republicans and his confirmation could be blocked if just one Republican on that committee joins the nine Democrats in voting against him. Apart from the fact that Tillerson has experience on the world stage as an oil executive, Donald Trump might have to pick someone else if Tillerson meets too much opposition.
Condoleezza Rice on her Facebook account posted that Tillerson will represent the interests and values of the United States with resolve and commitment. He will lead the exceptional men and women of the State Department with respect and dedication.
It would be a smart move for McCain to agree with Rice on this one because she certainly is qualified and well-respected on both sides of the aisle. McCain’s biggest problem has always been the fact that he is a career politician who has a desire to play to both sides of the aisle. He probably has just as big of an ego as Trump is reputed to have but he is doing an excellent job hiding it.
Trump’s principle remains the same, nominating business people like Tillerson because they are actually doing things instead of just talking about them like typical politicians.
