CHRIS WALLACE (HOST): Does that make it harder for you to push American values around the world when some foreign leaders question the president's values?

REX TILLERSON: Chris, we express America's values from the State Department. We represent the American people, we represent America's values, our commitment to freedom, our commitment to equal treatment of people the world over, and that message has never changed.

WALLACE: And when the president gets into the kind of controversy he does and the UN committee responds the way it does, it seems to say they begin to doubt whether we are living those values. 

TILLERSON: I don't believe anyone doubts the American people's values or the commitment of the American government or the government's agencies to advancing those values and defending those values. 

WALLACE: And the president's values? 

TILLERSON: The president speaks for himself, Chris. 

WALLACE: Are you -- separating yourself from that, sir? 

TILLERSON: I've spoken -- I've made my own comments as to our values as well in a speech I gave to the State Department this past week.
