Trump is expected to choose the CEO of Exxon Mobil as secretary of state


Donald Trump has met with Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as the incoming president considers his options for secretary of state.

Tillerson is under serious consideration to lead the State Department and also met with Trump earlier this week. Trump is also considering former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker and former United Nations ambassador John Bolton.

Many online are interested in what Tillerson's priorities as secretary will be. 

Others on social media are upset with the choice. 

Trump's transition team said Friday that former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani had withdrawn from consideration for the post.
