Speaking to State Department employees for the first time Thursday morning, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told those working under him that all were “entitled to the expression of our political beliefs, but [the State Department] cannot let our personal convictions overwhelm our ability to work as one team.”
“I know this was a hotly contested election, and we do not all feel the same way about the outcome,” Tillerson said to the crowd gathered in the State Department lobby.
Previously, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer encouraged those in the State Department who opposed President Trump’s refugee order to quit. “I think they should either get with the program or they can go,” Spicer told reporters.
