    I was saying this privately to a friend the other day. I think there are issues for sure but he has significant experience negotiating on a global scale for business so compared to most of Trumps picks he actually has relevant experience. Working for a company with a strong agenda doesn't necessarily mean you support that agenda even if your job is pushing it forward.. I'm skeptical but Tillerson has said more about climate change then most of Trumps cabinet combined. Lets hope hes moving on to be a great public servant and not half stuck in oil and Russia. Even as Elon pointed out with the Russia stuff if you spent a long time negotiating to bring your company into the country and then the president wants to give you an award... how do you turn that down?
