In remarks to graduates of the Virginia Military Institute today, Tillerson lamented assaults on facts that he said would lead to a loss of freedom.

He said only societies able to pursue the truth and challenge alternate realities could be truly free.

Tillerson did not mention Trump by name but alluded to some policies of the Trump administration by decrying those who neglect or ignore long-standing allies or deny that free trade is an engine of global growth.

Trump fired Tillerson by tweet in mid-March, later explaining that he didn't see eye-to-eye with him.
