President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday night said Rex Tillerson was the "man that I wanted right from the beginning" for Secretary of State,

The New York Times reported.

Despite the parade of candidates Trump met with and the buzz stirred up over the likes of Mitt Romney, Trump said the former ExxonMobil CEO sat atop his wish list.
