Rex Tillerson paints a portrait of an "undisciplined" president, who has a certain propensity to "break the law" to carry out his policy.

In a debate on Tuesday at Harvard, the content of which is reported in an article in the newspaper of the university, he explains that Donald Trump was "Have," several times, by the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
The former head of the American diplomacy, who has regularly been in a stand-off position against the Republican billionaire when he was in government, has since painted a portrait of a president "Unruly, who does not like to read" and who has a certain propensity to want " break the law " to carry out its policy.
Benyamin Netanyahu "a little Machiavellian"
Now he adds a facet, that of a rather naive leader to the head of the Israeli government, himself presented as a political "Extraordinarily talented" although"A little Machiavellian". "When we talk with" Bibi " [the nickname of Benjamin Netanyahu], it is always healthy to have a good deal of skepticism about what he says. "said Rex Tillerson.
According to him, the government of the Jewish state does not hesitate to water Washington from "Disinformation" to plead his case. "They did this with the president a few times, to convince him that" we are the good guys and they are the bad guys.

Rex Tillerson also regretted once again being kept out of the Israeli-Palestinian file, entrusted by Donald Trump to his son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner.
