Tillerson: 'I'm not going anywhere'
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he was "not going anywhere," denying news reports that he was considering leaving his post.
"I'm not going anywhere," Tillerson said on Wednesday after being questioned about his commitment to staying in his position, CNBC reported.
Asked how long he plans to stay, he said, "As long as the president lets me."
Tillerson's friends outside Washington D.C. say he plans to stay at the State Department through the holidays so he can walk away with a year in the cabinet under his belt, CNN reported Monday. But others told the network Tillerson could leave sooner.
