Republican Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark) said recently in an interview that advisers to the President better get on the ball.
Senator Cotton while giving an interview to Politico said:
When you’re a cabinet member, when you’re a senior advisor in the White House, and the president is right, you should help him achieve his objectives and run with his thinking,” Cotton told Politico.
“When you think the president is wrong, you have a duty to try to present to him the best facts and the best thinking to help him see it in a different light,” he continued.
“Maybe you can, but if he doesn’t, and he says, “No, I want to do it my way,” then your job is to move out and execute. And if you feel strongly enough, then you have to resign.”
“I mean, there are plenty of things in which I can imagine the president making a decision with which I would disagree but don’t rise to the level of a resignation for any of these men and women who serve him,” Cotton said.
The interview follows reports last week that the President and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson were arguing. However, Tillerson flat out denied ever thinking about resigning.
On Saturday the President said he wished Tillerson was a little tougher.
