Trump reportedly celebrated the makeup of his incoming administration during Tuesday's festivities at the Andrew W. Mellon auditorium, where about 200 foreign diplomats out of roughly 500 guests overall were expected to attend. The president-elect crowed about Pence's role as his vice president, noting other candidates "maybe wouldn't have worked out like Mike." Trump also joked about the confirmation hearings for Rex Tillerson, the former Exxon Mobil Corp. CEO who is his choice for secretary of State. "I think it's tougher than he thought," he quipped of Tillerson. "He's led this charmed life. He goes into a country, takes the oil, goes into another country." "It's tough dealing with these politicians, right?" Trump asked Tillerson, who was in attendance. "He's going to be so incredible." Tuesday's event was organized to be Trump's "first fingerprint on the global canvas of social democracy and outreach,” Thomas Barrack, Trump’s presidential inaugural committee chairman, told the Journal.
