Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been doing some serious shaking up of the status quo in Washington.
He is hard at work getting rid of waste in the State Department, and many of the career politicians and bureaucrats aren’t happy about it.
The State Department has “special envoys,” many of which are out of date and/or obsolete. And these wasteful positions multiplied while Obama was POTUS. Imagine!
For example, there’s still a special envoy for the Six-Party talks. They were talks to try to convince North Korea to give up their nukes. And there have been no such talks in nearly a decade.
Then there’s the “special envoy for conflict diamonds.” What? And the “personal representative for Northern Ireland issues.” Huh?

Well, Tillerson is getting rid of many of these wasteful, obsolete positions, and folding the functions of others into other positions. He told Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, that the reforms will save money and streamline operations, among other things.
I’m so relieved and happy to see Trump and his administration making real change in Washington, DC. It’s been going along for far too long in a status quo that is wasteful and corrupt. If you agree, please Share this out and comment “Way to Go, Rex!”
