‘Tillerson’s the man’: Former secretary of state speaks about Trump’s ‘basket of deplorables’

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, a close adviser to Donald Trump, said Monday that her former boss was “the most qualified person to be president of the United States.”

Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation, Rice said Trump’s “basket” of “disgusting people” is a “very, very, very sad indictment” of his administration.

“He is the most qualified man for president,” Rice said.

“He is temperamentally able to do that job.”

Rice also spoke about Trump saying he wants to see “people that have the same ideas” as him.

She also said the country needs a “rethink” of how the government is run.

Rice has been a vocal critic of Trump’s policies.

During a speech in September, she said he has no “respect for the office of the president.”

She also spoke of the possibility that Trump’s Cabinet appointments would be “unfortunate” because of his past statements.
