President-elect Donald Trump picks Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State.
The Washington Post reports some GOP lawmakers are upset over Trump's choice due to his ties to Russia.
According to The Christian Science Monitor Tillerson has been doing business in Moscow for 20 years and he's well known and liked there.
The U.S. Senate still has to confirm Tillerson. USA Today reports there's a possibility Tillerson's nomination may not be confirmed by the U.S. Senate due to the Russia issue.
Supporters of Trump's pick say the U.S. needs a Secretary of State that knows how to deal with the Middle East, Asia and Russia.
