    According to Donald Trump, US State Secretary Rex Tillerson hasn’t threatened to quit his post.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) US President Donald Trump has denied reports that US State Secretary Rex Tillerson threatened to quit his post.

    On Wednesday, NBC News reported that Tillerson considered resigning from his position as the top US diplomat back in July, due to disputes over policy and other clashes with the White House. Moreover, media reports also noted that Vice President Mike Pence and other administration officials had to convince Tillerson to stay, a claim that Tillerson directly denied to reporters in his remarks.
