Donald Trump has left his unelected son in law, Jared Kushner, who is also reported to have a credit line from George Soros, to act as the shadow secretary of state after freezing out Rex Tillerson, report Vanity Fair.
Tillerson’s capacity to control foreign policy has been further hampered by Trump and Bannon after his rejected choice of a deputy, and also by a freeze of hiring federal employees, implemented by Trump.
The choice of Tillerson to front an operation to fool voters without giving him the resources he needs to do a job good is emerging as a pattern in the Trump, Bannon, Ivanka and Jared Kushner cabal.
Mattis finds himself in the same position. He also has had to battle off Globalist plants suggested by Trump and Bannon, but at the price of having no staff.
