Donald Trump just announced the CEO of ExxonMobil, Rex Tillerson, as his nominee for secretary of state.
Tillerson's company has dealings in 50 countries around the world -- countries he will be negotiating with as secretary of state.
Tillerson also has a personal stake this: ExxonMobil has invested $2.2 billion in Russian oil exploration, and Tillerson will be in charge of the U.S.'s relationship with Russia, and if he lifts current sanctions, stands to win big.
Does that sound like a conflict of interest to you? Yeah, us too.
If confirmed, Tillerson would be the top official in charge of U.S. foreign policy.
The secretary of state advises the president on all foreign issues and oversees all negotiations with foreign countries. And yet Tillerson doesn't have any diplomatic or government experience of any kind.
This clearly isn't the first conflict of interest in Trump's cabinet. Trump picked a fast food tycoon as labor secretary, a Goldman Sachs executive for treasury secretary, and a private equity billionaire for the Commerce Department.
But Tillerson is already facing bipartisan opposition in the U.S. Senate due to his close personal relationship to Vladimir Putin -- who U.S. intelligence officials say directly intervened in the election to try to help Donald Trump.
Congressional reporters are already saying that Tillerson may have a difficult time getting confirmed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and prominent Republicans like Marco Rubio and John McCain have already raised concerns.
