Tillerson is Denying Americans Transparency and Accountability

American Bridge spokesperson Sabrina Singh released the following statement in response to Secretary of State Tillerson traveling to Asia without U.S. reporters and Sean Spicer not being able to answer the question when asked about Tillerson’s decision:

“Secretary’s Tillerson’s decision to shut out the U.S. press corps is taking a page right out of Vladimir Putin’s book. But this obstruction of accountability and transparency cannot stand. Americans deserve to know how our chief diplomat is responding to North Korea threatening the stability of the region – it is vital to our national security interests. It appears that the State Department either doesn’t understand that reality or worse, simply doesn’t care.”
