Tillerson Leads From State Dept. Shadows as White House Steps In – 3/11/17 NYT

““If you don’t fund the State Department fully, then I need to buy more ammunition,” Mr. Mattis said at the time. As one diplomat who has met frequently with Mr. Tillerson since he took office noted recently, “Rex clearly agrees with that. He just won’t say it.”(A senior State Department official said Mr. Tillerson did say it, to Mr. Trump, over dinner a little more than a week ago.)”
