Caribbean News – Will Tillerson Have To Apologize For His Boss’ S-Hole Comment During Jamaica Visit?


News Americas, MIAMI, FL, Fri. Feb. 2, 2018: News that U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will visit Jamaica on the final leg of his Latin America trip has stirred some on social media to question whether the country’s top diplomat will be asked to apologize or explain his boss’ alleged s-hole comments on January.

Time will tell as Tillerson is scheduled to visit Haiti’s CARICOM neighbor, Jamaica, on February 7th.  The item is certainly not on the formal agenda as a news release from the US Embassy in Kingston says Tillerson will engage regional partners on several issues, including advocating for regional attention to the crisis in Venezuela.

During his trip to Kingston, Tillerson will meet with Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Kamina Johnson-Smith to discuss bilateral and regional security issues as well as Jamaica’s successful economic reform efforts.

Jamaica will be the final stop for Tillerson, who is also scheduled to visit Austin, Texas; Mexico City, Mexico; Bariloche and Buenos Aires, Argentina; Lima, Perú as well as Bogotá, Colombia between February 1 to 6th.
