Rex Tillerson will be Secretary of State

(CNN)President-elect Donald Trump will select ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson to serve as secretary of state, multiple sources told CNN Monday night, setting up a heated Senate confirmation battle and signaling a desire to ease Washington’s estrangement with Russia.

Like Trump, Tillerson, 64, has no formal foreign policy experience, but has built close relationships with many world leaders by closing massive deals across Eurasia and the Middle East on behalf of the world’s largest energy company.
