Targeted: Rex Tillerson
Donald Trump repeatedly directed former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to do things that were in direct violation of US law, only to grow frustrated every time Tillerson informed Trump that he didn't have the legal authority to do what he just directed. Tillerson claimed he had to tell the President on numerous occasions that he "understands" why he wanted something done a certain way, but that Federal law prohibits him from doing it that way. He went on to suggest that Trump likely grew tired of always being told "no" by him.
