Tillerson and Trump at odds on nuclear

January 12, 2017

US Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson has disagreed with Donald Trump over nuclear weapons.

US Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson says that he doesn't agree with President-elect Donald Trump's comments that it would not be a bad thing if other countries, including Japan, acquired nuclear weapons.

Asked by Democratic Senator Edward Markey about Trump's comments, Tillerson said during his Senate confirmation hearing that he did not think anyone would advocate for more nuclear weapons on the planet.

Pressed further by Markey on whether he agreed with Trump's remarks, Tillerson replied: "I do not agree."
