The most recent quote attributed to David Ignatius came from an article called Massive cyberhacks, name-calling Trump, and eight other stories you might have missed: “Tillerson's desire to remain on the job is a stabilizing move, at a moment when the United States is locked in a potential nuclear confrontation with North Korea and Trump is headed for a key November meeting in Beijing. Although Tillerson has been a poor public communicator at the State Department, he knows the world and can speak the language of America's global partners and potential adversaries. His departure now would be widely seen as damaging to America's already fragile position in a world disrupted by Trump's erratic policies.”.
