Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS)

WASHINGTON - Today, Congress approved 56-43 President Trump’s nominee, recently retired ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, to serve as secretary of state. The vote against Tillerson’s confirmation was the highest for a secretary of state since World War II. Condoleeza Rice, by contrast, was approved by an 85-13 vote, Henry Kissinger by 78-7 and Dean Acheson by 83-6.
