WASH­ING­TON: Rex Tiller­son, the for­mer US sec­re­tary of state, has said that his for­mer boss, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump, is “undis­ci­plined” and “doesn’t read briefing re­ports”.

“What was chal­leng­ing for me com­ing from the dis­ci­plined, highly process-ori­ented Exxon Mo­bil cor­po­ra­tion,” Tiller­son said at an event in Hous­ton, Texas on Thurs­day, was “to go to work for a man who is pretty undis­ci­plined, doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing re­ports, doesn’t like to get into the de­tails of a lot of things, but rather just says, ‘This is what I be­lieve’. ”

Ac­cord­ing to a Hous­ton Chron­i­cle re­port, Tiller­son said, “Trump acts on his in­stincts. In some re­spects, that looks like im­pul­sive­ness... But it’s not his in­tent to act on im­pulse. I think he is re­ally try­ing to act on his in­stincts.”
