Press Release

WASHINGTON - Today, Congressman Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County), a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, issued the following statement after the White House announced that it would be replacing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

“The chaos of the Trump Administration continues. America exhibits strength by demonstrating resolute unity abroad. Under the Trump Administration, our diplomatic efforts have been marred by President Trump’s haphazard and bumbling leadership that led to policy reversals and mixed messages. Trump undercut his Secretary of State so much that no one knew whose views the Secretary of State was representing. There is no evidence this will change with another Secretary of State. Trump can switch out his Administration officials another ten times but it’s not going to change the damage he’s already done to our image abroad.”
