Rex Tillerson's foreign policy isn't sounding much like Donald Trump's.He rejected the idea of an immigration ban on Muslims. He treaded softly on the human rights records of key U.S. partners like Saudi Arabia.That may help Tillerson win over senators who've expressed wariness about his extensive relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.Wednesday, Tillerson called Putin's Russia a threat to the United States.CAMPAIGN HACKINGBefore Wednesday, Trump spent weeks ridiculing the U.S. intelligence agencies' accusations that Russia hacked and leaked emails, spread "fake news" and took other actions to interfere with the U.S. election.Not Trump, who has repeatedly praised Putin's leadership.THE MUSLIM BANDuring the campaign, Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims immigrating to the U.S. Trump later suggested he was reconsidering the Muslim ban.If a NATO member is invaded, the oil man said, the U.S. would join other members in coming to its defense.
