“I will be honest with you,” Tillerson said, “it troubles me that the American people seem to want to know so little about issues, that they are satisfied with 128 characters.”
Others on social media think there will be more future former Cabinet members who eventually unload on Trump.
Maggie Haberman of The New York Times, who has maintained a close relationship with the president, thinks Trump’s firing baggage will come back to haunt him in 2020.
Heading into 2020, there will be a string of senior appointees who parted ways with Trump on bad terms or think poorly of him – Sessions, Tillerson, McMaster, Kelly – who could discuss their Trump experiences in interviews.

Tillerson just did that this week. Said they don’t share the same value system. Said he had to stop Trump from using illegal means to further his agenda.
They are distancing themselves, making sure they don’t go down with the Trump ship.

Lots of surrogates and ex co workers will be writing books.

And so they should. These people have dealt with Trump first hand. The good, the bad, the ugly. The public deserves to hear the truth from them and not BS from the admin trying to make Trump look presidential. His words and actions are not that of a president but of a con-man!

Could? They are discussing it now! Donald won't make it to 2020 you can count on that dear. He is a nice dark crusty piece of toast.

Trump’s bunker mentality cost him the House of Representatives and even judges (i.e. Roberts) are putting him in check. Now, a long line of prominent conservative former appointees are ready, as you indicate, to show his true nature and actions.

Let Tillerson just be the start of the avalanche

Tillerson clashed with Trump for much of his tenure. In July 2017, Tillerson reportedly called Trump a “f*cking moron” following a national security meeting at the Pentagon.
